“Accounting for Tax Uncertainty”: Mon., Nov. 28th, 12:30 PM-1:50 PM

On Monday, November 28th, from 12:30 PM to 1:50 PM in Furman Hall Room 216, the Graduate Tax Program will host a discussion titled Accounting for Tax Uncertainty.  A brief description is below:

Knowledge of how tax results will be presented in the financial accounts of a business enterprise is a valuable attribute of a tax lawyer.  US GAAP contains rules specific to the financial accounting for tax consequences.  This lecture will address one of these rules:  the financial accounting for uncertain tax positions taken on a return.

David Spencer, ‘99, LL.M. ’00, a tax lawyer at BNP Paribas and Adjunct Professor of Law at NYU Law, will conduct the discussion.  Mr. Spencer has worked for the last ten years in both tax and banking, first in the tax department of Sullivan & Cromwell and then as a business-line investment banker with Bank of America, HSBC, Fortis and currently with BNP Paribas.  His transactional work has been wide ranging, and has consistently involved the interplay of taxation and tax-intensive transactions with other areas such as accounting, finance, legal, bank regulatory, derivatives, currency, compliance, risk management and operations.
