Privacy Statement of Tax Executives Institute

Information about our Organization and Website

Welcome to the website of Tax Executives Institute (TEI), the preeminent association of corporate tax executives in North America with 56 chapters in the United States, Canada, Asia, and Europe. TEI's 7,000 members represent more than 3,200 of the leading corporations in those jurisdictions.  TEI represents a cross-section of the business community, and is dedicated to the development and effective implementation of sound tax policy, to promoting the uniform and equitable enforcement of the tax laws, and to reducing the cost and burden of administration and compliance to the benefit of taxpayers and government alike. As a professional association, TEI is firmly committed to maintaining a tax system that works — one that is administrable and with which taxpayers can comply.

TEI's offices are located at 1200 G Street, N.W., Suite 300, Washington, D.C. 20005-3814. We can be reached by email at asktei@tei.org or by phone at 202.638.5601.
