Students at Tax Day

J. Nelson Young Tax Institute

The J. Nelson Young Tax Institute is an annual professional program covering current state and federal tax problems and issues at the post-graduate level of knowledge. The program is designed for practitioners who frequently handle state and federal tax matters. Emphasis is placed on subjects that are new and current, including in-depth coverage of recent developments and problems that often prove difficult in planning clients’ affairs and transactions.

The program features discussions on current issues in individual and business income taxation, professional regulatory ethics and in estate planning. The program’s goal is to expand the practitioners’ understanding of state and federal taxation policy, regulation and real-world application. There are no prerequisites or advanced preparation for this conference. The speakers are tax scholars, members of government, and practitioners from throughout the country who have been selected for their technical expertise and contributions to the tax industry. CLE and CPE credit are available.
