Sutherland attorneys Diann L. Smith and Jeffrey A. Friedman are speaking at the Council on State Taxation (COST) 39th Annual Meeting, October 22-24, 2008, at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa in Orlando, Florida. Diann’s presentation, "Bringing a Gun to a Knife Fight: Alternative Discovery Tools," will discuss the effectiveness of Freedom of Information Act requests and other discovery alternatives as tools in litigation. Jeff is presenting on "Public Disclosure of Corporate Tax Returns: Vital for Democracy or Populist Claptrap." Respect for the confidentiality of taxpayer information is diminishing, and some are arguing that corporate tax returns should be made public. This presentation will be a spirited debate on the merits of disclosure and confidentiality.
The Annual Meeting will cover many types of state and local tax issues that business taxpayers are confronted with today. In addition to the ever-popular audit sessions, conference topics will range from Income/Franchise, Property, and Sales and Use Taxes to Payroll and Employment Tax and Unclaimed Property issues.
