ARLINGTON, Va., March 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Companies—and the practitioners that advise them—that fail to comply with international tax regulations risk jail, financial penalties, and loss of reputation and customers. Bloomberg BNA | CITE will host a live conference, Intermediate U.S. International Tax Update, April 25-27 in New York, that will provide practical solutions to complex cross-border tax issues, including an in-depth look at U.S. foreign tax credit, Subpart F, and cross-border mergers and acquisition transactions.
