The 11th Annual Worldwide Tax Update

Sullivan & Worcester Conference Center
5.14.18 (New York) and 5.15.18 (Boston)

Sullivan & Worcester is pleased to present the 11th Annual Worldwide Tax Update, an annual symposium on international tax developments and tax planning in the United States and throughout the world. This year, in light of the most significant tax reform in thirty years, our event will focus exclusively on updates to the United States Internal Revenue Code, with a special guest from Israel.

This free, one-day event — to be held first in New York and then repeated in Boston the next day — will serve as a source of new tax ideas and techniques, as well as a forum to learn about the many significant changes to the international tax system.

Both CPE Certificates of Attendance and CLE credits will be offered.

If you are interested in attending this event, please email Tisha Blair at for an invitation.
