    15th Annual TEI-Sponsored LB&I Northeastern Compliance Practice Area Conference
    September 22, 2016



    With the reorganization of the IRS, we have broadened the scope of our Fall conference.  This is our 15th program and we are partnering with the IRS to bring you LB&I Northeastern Compliance Area updates on a variety of topics of interest to all taxpayers.
    Among the highlights of this year's conference:
    LB&I Compliance Update: Barbara Harris, Director of NECPA, Catherine Jones, Director of Field Operations for the North Atlantic, Scott Ballint, Acting Director of Field Operations- Middle Atlantic and Gloria Sullivan, Director of Financial Institutions and Products will provide LB&I Compliance Updates.
    Global Tax Issues: Sharon Porter, Director of Treaty, Transfer Pricing Practice, Ted Setzer, Assistant Deputy Commissioner and Vince Guiliano, Senior Counsel will be part of a panel discussion on global tax issues including BEPS, Transfer Pricing and Corporate Inversions.
    Please see the draft program here for details regarding the afternoon breakout sessions with topics including FATCA, IRS appeals update, the new Partnership audit rules whistleblower claims and Financial Products Issues.
    The Conference also allows for numerous opportunities for networking and one-on-one interaction during breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch.
    The conference will be held at the Ted Weiss Federal Building, 290 Broadway, 30th floor.  Space is very limited in the facility and consequently, attendance generally - and in particular at the breakout sessions - will be on a first come, first served basis.  I urge you to mark your calendar and plan to attend this event.  New York CPE credits will be awarded to participants.  The draft agenda is attached. To register, go to http://tei-lbi-2016-conference.eventbrite.com.
    With the inclusion of TEI chapters outside the New York metropolitan area the conference will take on more importance and be even more productive and informative. We look forward to seeing you on September 22. Please contact me, TEI chair of the conference, should you have any comments or questions.
