APESTAXP14 1 Tax  Corp Responsibility Poster

The NYU Journal of Law & Business and the NYU Graduate Tax Program cordially invite you to participate in a half-day symposium titled “Tax and Corporate Social Responsibility” on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Lipton Hall, D’Agostino Hall, NYU School of Law, located at 108 West Third Street.

From the enactment of the corporate excise tax in 1909 to the present, the corporate tax in the United States has generated intense debate.  Topics at the center of this debate have ranged from the fundamental purpose of the tax to moral obligations of corporations to pay tax to tax transparency and accountability.  This half-day symposium will continue the discussion by addressing two questions:  Should corporations pay tax?  And should corporate tax returns be public?  Each panel will feature leading tax and corporate law scholars and distinguished practitioners.  Participation from the audience in the discussion will be encouraged.

This program is free of charge and will offer attendees 3 credits of CLE in the Area of Professional Practice.
