International Tax 101 Overview
International Taxes in a Nutshell
A General Overview
Thursday, May 21, 2009
1331 Pennsylvania Avenue NW – Suite 600
Given the country’s current fiscal situation and the political makeup of Congress and the Administration, it is likely these proposals to change our international tax rules—which include changes to current rules on deferral and foreign tax credits, will be seriously debated and considered by the 111th Congress.
The elimination or scaling back of deferral and other proposed international tax law changes could have a significant negative impact on U.S. multinationals and their suppliers as well as the overall U.S. economy. An extensive lobbying and education effort is key to our ability to preserve deferral and other international tax provisions that are key to U.S. competitiveness.
Please join us for a basic course on the U.S. international tax system, including a discussion of our unique worldwide tax system, taxing overseas income and the importance of deferral. Our speakers—Harrison Cohen and Gretchen Sierra are principals at Deloitte. Both have strong backgrounds in international tax and extensive Hill and Treasury experience.
This is a nontechnical session designed for company and association reps who will be talking to Hill and Administration staff about these important issues.
Please RSVP to NAM’s Glenda Jackson at email@example.com (202) 637-3073 or NFTC’s Vivian Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you on the 21st.
