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 2011 Tax Symposium: Gross Receipts, a continuing legal education program for taxation attorneys, is scheduled for Sept. 23 at the State Bar Center in Albuquerque.

Topics will include gross receipts and compensating tax basics, tangible personal property and services, a New Mexico tax update, an overview of exemptions and deductions, and other special topics.

Featured speakers include Tim Van Valen, Esq., Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP; Richard Anklam, President and Executive Director, New Mexico Tax Research Institute; and James O’Neill, O’Neill Consulting LLC.

The symposium is sponsored by the State Bar Taxation Law Section, which seeks to expand tax knowledge among section members, act as liaison between the State Bar and public officials involved in the taxing process, and enhance tax awareness of the State Bar and general public.
