The Annual Tax Controversy Institute provides an open forum for distinguished presenters and panelists to discuss, and debate, sometimes sensitive tax practice issues with an engaged audience. Highly regarded as a premiere annual industry event, the conference includes among its attendees leading tax attorneys, CPAs, financial professionals, and representatives from the IRS. We also welcome many of UCLA Extension instructors and students.

Registration and continental breakfast begin at 7:30am, with the conference program officially starting at 8:20am. An evening reception will be held at 5:00pm, immediately following the final panel presentation.
