The next NFTC Tax Luncheon Forum to discuss current international tax developments will be held on Tuesday, June 14th, at 12:00 p.m. ET, at the NFTC offices, 1625 K Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC.  Henry Louie, International Economist, Office of International Tax Analysis in the Office of Tax Policy, U.S. Treasury Department, will be our speaker.  Henry will discuss his participation in a new OECD Working Party 1 subgroup that is examining the Non-discrimination Tax Treaty Article and related commentary.  The work of the subgroup has been undertaken as a result of recent European Union court cases.  Henry would appreciate knowing in advance of the Tax Lunch Forum (if possible) about any instances of discrimination that you have encountered, and how, if at all, a tax treaty was able to resolve it.  It will be an interesting discussion, please attend and join in.
