UCLA 38th Annual Tax Controversy Conference – October 27, 2022

We are pleased to let you know that the planning for the 38th Annual UCLA Extension Tax Controversy Institute is proceeding and we have an exceptional program lined up with top governmental officials and leading private practitioners from around the country. 

As you know the Institute is back in person this year. After two years Covid/Zoom protocols, we are all excited to see old and new friends in person.  Please note that for those of you who are unable to join us in person, there will be a later “virtual” rebroadcast of the event sponsored in conjunction with CalCPA.

The full schedule of programs will be up on the website soon, but we will give you the highlights below.  This year you need to sign up for the early bird special by September 2, 2022, and it is a deal with a $100 discount off the regular rate.  Registration also includes lunch.  Because of Covid restrictions, there will be limitations on seating so sign up early. You can sign up at the following link.
