Taxation Committee


Message From The Chair



As the incoming Chair of the Business Law Section Taxation Committee, I would like to tell you about past events and welcome you to our numerous upcoming events. We had two very successful programs at the fall meetings in Chicago last September. Your Tax Committee teamed up with the PEVC to present a very well-attended panel on International Funds, including US and foreign tax aspects of outbound fund investment. We also were fortunate to welcome Professor Annette Nellen to our committee meeting to discuss hot topics in tax.


Many of you responded to my call for speakers last month and we have a packed agenda for Montreal in April, 2016. In addition to our committee meeting, which will include a presentation on US-Canada cross border employment tax issues, we are teaming up with the Business Bankruptcy Committee for a program on distressed company sales, and the M&A Committee for tax considerations in domestic and international M&A transactions. The Montreal meetings promise to provide a wide variety of content.


In addition to the live panels at the upcoming Spring meeting, the Section will be broadcasting Tax Committee webinars on more specific topics, including inversions, invalidation of regulations, municipal financing and business succession planning. You should contact me if you or someone in your firm would like to participate in a presentation or webinar.


The Tax Committee now has an ABA Fellow, Dan Knudsen, to help us with updating our website, and a law student volunteer, Jacob Heyka, to assist with programming. We will be working to include our upcoming activities on line.


This will be a very active year for the Tax Committee, and we will be seeking suggestions, content and speakers. In particular, the Tax Committee would like to encourage some of our younger lawyers to take an active role and use this Committee as an opportunity to gain exposure or sharpen skills. I am looking forward to seeing the year unfold for our members.


Roger Royse
Chair, Taxation Committee


Mission Statement

The mission of the Taxation Committee is to help business lawyers gain a basic understanding of the important tax issues that inevitably arise in their practices. The Committee seeks to act as a bridge between tax law and business law, and to increase communication about tax issues among the various committees of the Business Law Section, and between the Business Law Section and the Tax Section.
