On January 11, 2017, TEI Tax Counsel Pilar Mata presented at the Federation of Tax Commissioners’ Midwinter New Commissioners Meeting and met with state commissioners of revenue from around the country. Pilar was invited to provide an overview of TEI’ mission, organization, and anticipated state and local tax priorities for 2017. She summarized the recent amicus and tax policy work performed by TEI’s State and Local Tax Committee, highlighting TEI’s recent work with the Multistate Tax Commission (MTC) regarding the incorporation of the federal partnership audit rules into state reporting statutes and TEI’s request for the MTC to update its 2003 model statute governing the reporting of federal income adjustments. Pilar also encouraged the State Commissioners to use TEI and its members’ expertise as a resource when addressing proposed legislative and regulatory changes.
