Hot Topics in State Taxation: The Third Annual Northeast SALT Forum

"Hot Topics in Sales & Use Tax: What is Changing? How National Sales Tax Trends and Events Impact the Northeast"
"Taxing Online Transactions"
"The Top Ten Relationship Killers:  Recurring Scenarios in State Tax and How to Deal with Them Effectively"
"Flow-Through Entities: The Unwritten Rules"
"Business Tax Reform:  Raising National Interest Toward a Value Added Tax"

If these topics have peaked your interest, consider attending the Third Annual Northeast State & Local Tax Forum, to be held on November 10, 2011 at the Westford Regency Inn and Conference Center in Westford, Massachusetts, a beautiful, colonial town approximately 1 hour outside of Boston.  

This one-day forum, sponsored by the New Hampshire Society of Certified Public Accountants, will feature some of the leading State & Local Tax minds from New England and the nation, including:
  • Scott Peterson, Executive Director of the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board
  • Harley Duncan, Managing Director, Washington National Tax Office of KPMG, LLP
  • James (Jim) Eads, Esquire, Director of Public Affairs for Ryan, LLC and former Executive Director of the Federation of Tax Administrators
Plus many more State & Local Tax ("SALT") experts from several of the "Big 4" accounting firms and premier regional and national law firms.  These experienced SALT practitioners will address key technical and policy issues and provide an annual update on significant SALT developments from across the country, with a particular focus on New England.

The State & Local Tax Forum was the brainchild of a group of New England SALT leaders who, recognizing that a technically focused, in-depth SALT conference, was not offered in the New England area, decided to create the Northeast State & Local Tax Forum and bring together renown SALT experts to present on the latest "Hot Topics" in State Taxation.

Whether you're a SALT practitioner based in New England or anywhere in the country, you won't want to miss this innovative and thought provoking conference.

I know I'll be there!
