Message From The Chair

Welcome to the Individual and Family Taxation Committee (IFTC). Thank you for visiting our website. The IFTC focuses on a wide-ranging set of tax issues facing individuals and families. The IFTC serves the Taxation Section by sharing our expertise in individual and family taxation issues and current developments, and we frequently comment on proposed Treasury Regulations, IRS Forms and Publications, and other government actions which impact individuals and families. We strive to provide our members with high quality CLE which will provide both the practical aspects of the tax law as well as the policies underlying them.

We encourage you to take an active role in our committee. Please join us at a Taxation Section event or contact us directly to inquire about leadership roles within our committee. Thank you.
