69th Tax Conference: Welcome

On behalf of the University of Chicago Law School, it is my honor and pleasure to invite you to the 69th Annual Federal Tax Conference at the Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago on Friday and Saturday, November 11 and 12, 2016. 

Sessions will cover the treatment of collective investment vehicles in ­­­­treaties, the arm’s length standard, section 385, retroactivity, partnership continuations and the new partnership audit rules.

Our traditional cocktail hour and dinner will be held at Spiaggia, corner of Michigan Avenue and Oak Street.  Professor Kristin Hickman of the University of Minnesota will be discussing the viability of Treasury Regulations in light of the Administrative Procedures Act and related issues.

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.

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

Very truly yours,

James Barry
Conference Chair
