The Internal Revenue Code at 100 (Oct 19th)

The NYU Graduate Tax Program and UCLA School of Law cordially invite you to the second annual NYU/UCLA Tax Policy Symposium, titled “The Internal Revenue Code at 100,” on Friday, October 19, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Greenberg Lounge, Vanderbilt Hall, NYU School of Law, located at 40 Washington Square South.

This program is free of charge and will offer attendees 6 credits of CLE in the Area of Professional Practice.

The symposium will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the income tax in the United States. Participants will consider the evolution of the American income tax over the past century and will consider prospects for tax reform as the income tax begins its second century. The conference will feature panels on business taxation, international taxation, inequality and taxation and politics.  A list of the panels and participants is below.
The NYU/UCLA Tax Policy Symposium hosted by NYU School of Law and UCLA School of Law is a joint annual conference focusing on tax policy issues from both a legal and economic perspective. It provides a forum in which leading scholars, policy-makers, and practitioners can analyze complex tax policy questions and options for reform and brings together members of both NYU Law’s tax law faculty and UCLA Law’s business law and policy program. It builds on tax policy symposia that have historically been hosted by the Tax Law Review, the premier law school journal for tax policy scholarship published at NYU School of Law, and the UCLA Colloquium on Tax Policy and Public Finance, started in 2004.  Financial support for this conference is provided by NYU School of Law and the Lowell Milken Institute of Business Law and Policy, UCLA School of Law.
