Attorneys to Tackle Key Tax Issues and Developments

Albuquerque, N.M.—Few laws change as quickly and as often as local, state, and federal tax laws. That’s why continuing legal education is especially important, both for the public and for the taxation attorney. The 2010 Tax Symposium, a continuing legal education program for taxation attorneys, is scheduled for Sept. 24 at the State Bar Center.

Topics include issues for non-profits and businesses, overviews on the various areas of income tax, potential legislative changes, and major changes in federal law. Among the presenters are Bruce R. Hopkins, Polsinelli Shughart PC, Kansas City; Timothy Van Valen, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck PC; Edward Hymson, Research Fellow; CPA Dan H. Hanke, The Hanke Group PC, San Antonio; and Daniel L. Simmons, Professor of Law, UC Davis Law School.

Note: news media are welcome to attend and cover the sessions. Please notify Christine Morganti, or (505) 797-6028, of your attendance plans.
