68th Tax Conference: Welcome

September 2015

On behalf of the University of Chicago Law School, it is my honor and pleasure to invite you to the 68th Annual Federal Tax Conference at the Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago on Friday and Saturday, November 6 and 7, 2015. 

Online registration for the invitation-only conference is now available at http://www.law.uchicago.edu/taxconference/register.  As space is strictly limited and to help us manage attendance, please indicate which sessions you will attend and whether you will join us for lunch and dinner on Friday.  Please respond soon, as last year we reached capacity only a few days after registration opened.

Sessions will cover Subpart F services rules, crafting a minimum tax, integrating shareholder and corporate tax systems, modern REITs, attribution from partnership to partners and reforming Subchapter K.

Our traditional cocktail hour and dinner will be held at Spiaggia, corner of Michigan Avenue and Oak Street.  Robert Stack of the Treasury Department will be commenting on international tax policy, from the inside looking out.  Dinner guests are welcome; an additional fee of $125 applies. 

The speakers and commentators are all experts on their topics, and senior government personnel will participate on panels.  The session chairs will ensure there is ample time for vigorous audience debate, which is illuminating (and fun) for everyone and has become the hallmark of our Conference.  Abstracts or drafts of papers will be available on our website before the Conference.

This invitation is non-transferrable.  Attendance is limited to 150, and we urge you to accept promptly to assure yourself a spot.  The registration fee for the Conference is $625, payable online via MasterCard or Visa.  We have a limited budget to defray the travel expenses of government officials.  Please contact me prior to the Conference with any such requests.

We look forward to seeing you at the Gleacher Center in November.

Very truly yours,

Diana S. Doyle
Conference Chair
