Sutherland attorneys Diann L. Smith, Jeffrey A. Friedman and Marc A. Simonetti are speaking at the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies' 28th Institute on State and Local Taxation, December 14-15, 2009, at the Grand Hyatt in New York City. Marc is a special reporter for the panel session "What's Happening Everywhere Today?" During this session, the panel will provide an in-depth review of significant developments from regions across the country.
Diann and Jeff are presenting "Penalties—How to Avoid Them, How to Contest Them." States continue to seek expanded use of penalties to raise revenue and increase enforcement. However, some taxpayers argue that penalties are being used inappropriately—to accelerate tax collections and force disclosure of supportable tax positions. Diann and Jeff will examine the current state of play and use of tax penalties, including recent litigation.
The Institute is designed for the practitioner who must frequently anticipate and handle state and local tax matters. It provides high-level updates, practical advice, and in-depth analysis of the latest developments and current issues in all areas of state and local taxation. Attendees learn practical solutions and valuable insights from leading authorities throughout the industry. Just as important, the Institute provides attendees with the opportunity to meet and network with state and local tax practitioners from all around the country, and to share ideas, exchange views, learn what others are doing, and obtain credit for continuing education.
