U.S.-based multinational companies in 2018 will find themselves operating in uncharted waters. A panel discussion on “International Tax Developments” at the Tax Law Conference this March will offer guidance by the IRS and the U.S. Department of the Treasury in the international tax area.

In light of today’s dynamic global economic environment and the potential for legislative changes, speakers will examine how to assess a multinational’s global business model and help multinational companies align their tax strategies to their business.

International tax specialists John J. Merrick (IRS), Douglas Poms (U.S. Department of Treasury), Raymond J. Stahl (IRS), Carol Tan (IRS), Joseph Calianno (BDO USA LLP), and Jeffrey S. Korenblatt (Reed Smith LLP) will provide a general overview of recent international tax developments and their implications on taxpayers, including multinational corporations.

Conference speakers will discuss a myriad of tax, accounting, and regulatory strategies to aid in international transactions. Speakers regularly advise on issues relating to cross-border restructuring, corporate taxation, optimizing a global tax structure, transfer pricing, financing, and foreign tax credit planning. If you have clients operating across borders, or competing in multiple jurisdictions, this is a must-attend conference!
