This year’s NYU Tax Controversy Forum will be held on Thursday and Friday June 18 and 19, 2020 as an online webinar featuring senior IRS personnel. The entire program will be provided free of charge.

The Forum’s Planning Committee, which includes Forum founder and Kostelanetz & Fink partner Bryan Skarlatos, and the New York University’s School of Professional Services decided to offer this program remotely via Zoom webinar in order to ensure the health and safety of conference attendees and panelists during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Given the circumstances, we also are waiving all registration fees and bringing this year’s Forum to you for free! We’ll have more information in the coming days on how to register to hear Tax Compliance and Procedure Updates from an exciting array of senior IRS personnel including:
