Re: Wednesday, July 14, 2010 Tax Lunch Forum

The next NFTC Tax Luncheon Forum to discuss current international tax issues will be held on Wednesday, July 14th at 12:00 p.m. EDT, at the NFTC offices, 1625 K Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC. We are very pleased that Phil West, a Partner at Steptoe and Johnson, and Barbara Angus, a Principal at Ernst and Young have agreed to speak with us about tax treaty issues. Both Phil and Barbara are former International Tax Counsels at the U.S. Treasury Department and as such had extensive involvement in the tax treaty process. We will review the 2010 NFTC Tax Treaty Survey and get some insight into the process that the Treasury Department uses to determine where to engage in tax treaty negotiations. Please come prepared for a lively dialogue.

For those attending the meeting, lunch will be provided for $40.00, payable by check or credit card. Please register in advance (by Friday, July 9th) so that we can make the necessary lunch arrangements or provide the conference call-in number to you. For those who are outside the Washington Metropolitan area who cannot attend in person, a call-in number will be provided to you, however, you must return the attached response form to before the call-in information will be sent to you. Please complete the attached response form to attend or participate in the conference call and return it by Friday, July 9th (note that no refunds will be made after Friday).

Note to conference call participants: To give our speaker time to eat lunch, the discussion will start at approximately 12:15pm; (i.e., the call in number will activate at 12:15pm). Also, please put your phones on mute unless you are speaking and DO NOT PUT YOUR PHONE ON HOLD AT ANY TIME during the call.

I look forward to your participation in the next Tax Lunch Forum.
