You are invited to cover attend an important election-year roundtable discussion on tax accrual workpapers and the IRS’ policy to more aggressively pursue them, which is raising a series of important questions for corporate America.
Tax Analysts, the nonprofit publisher of Tax Notes and other premier print and online publications, is sponsoring the event. Join us as we discuss: What, exactly, are “tax accrual workpapers” and how do they differ from other accounting workpapers? How wide will the IRS cast its net? Will other disclosures to auditors under Sarbanes-Oxley eventually find their way to IRS auditors? What, if anything, can corporate taxpayers do to protect tax accrual workpapers?
You are invited not only to cover the event, but to attend – and, if you choose, participate in – the discussion. The audience will include current and former government officials, auditors, tax lawyers and lobbyists, corporate representatives, and other tax experts.
