We are pleased to let you know that this year’s National Institute on Criminal Tax Fraud and Tax Controversy will be taking place in person in Las Vegas Nevada on December 8 through December 10, 2021. Yes — we are back live and look forward to seeing all of our colleagues up close and personal.


The ABA’s COVID-19 protocols will be in place and they can be located on the registration link below.

Attendees will need to affirm being vaccinated and or will be required to show a negative COVID test at registration on Wednesday and an updated test on Friday. The ABA wants to keep everyone safe. There will also be distance and mask protocols required by the Hotel.


The Institute is the yearly gathering of the Criminal and Civil Tax Controversy bars and brings together high-level Government representatives, judges, corporate counsel and private practitioners who engage in all aspects of tax controversy, civil tax litigation and criminal tax prosecution and defense.
