Freda Speaks on State Taxing Authorities at TEI

Tax Executives Institute (TEI) is the preeminent association of in-house tax professionals worldwide. Members are business executives who are responsible for taxation matters on an administrative or policy-making level, or whose work is otherwise primarily concerned with the challenges of business taxation. TEI members are accountants, lawyers, and other corporate and business employees who are responsible for the tax affairs of their employers in an executive, administrative, or managerial capacity. Andersen Tax has had a long-term sponsorship relationship with the organization.

Ray Freda will be presenting, "Whatever Raises the Most Revenue: State’s Taxing Authorities Taking Inconsistent Positions To Fill The Coffers" during the Houston Chapter’s State and Local Tax Roundtable. The only thing that can consistently be relied upon during an audit is that the State will argue the position that raises the most revenue. The session will highlight recent examples of states arguing out of both sides of their mouths and will provide recommendations to taxpayers as to how best to defend themselves. The event takes place on March 16, 2017 at The Downtown Club at Houston Center in Houston, TX.
