WASHINGTON, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tax Council Policy Institute (TCPI) will hold its 11th Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium, "Tax Reform: In search of a 21st Century U.S. tax system," February 24 - 25, 2010 in Washington, DC.

The TCPI Symposium will bring together more than 50 experts, including key policy makers and practitioners from academia, government and industry for discussions on topics such as:

  • Lessons in reform: Discussion of recent tax reform in other countries
  • The impact of fundamental tax reform on business models
  • Tax incentives for innovation and U.S. competitiveness
  • VAT: Practical considerations and lessons learned

Symposium speakers will be announced later this month.

"This conference is unique in that it gathers experienced practitioners to engage in a dialogue with the policy makers and economists who so often lead important reform discussions, and comes at a critical time as Congress takes up these proposals in 2010," said Roger LeMaster, Executive Director of TCPI. "These discussions will bring about a greater understanding of the underlying issues, proving how critical events such as these are in making a true impact on tax policies both domestically and globally."

Each year TCPI selects program managers to help create and execute its annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium. This year, Deloitte Tax LLP ("Deloitte") has been chosen as the sole program manager by TCPI. Deloitte will collaborate with the Symposium Planning Committee which is comprised of nearly 35 elite tax professionals from major worldwide businesses.
