The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on FIN 48 for Public Companies: State & Local Tax Issues

New York, NY, October 22, 2008 --( The Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast on FIN 48 for Public Companies: State & Local Tax Issues. This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, March 12th, 2009, at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM (ET – New York).

Under FIN 48, companies have been accounting for uncertain tax positions since 2006. One of the most complicated areas for this is in the calculation of previously unrecognized state and local tax positions.

Building on a series of successful FIN 48 events, The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to help understand the impact of the FIN 48 (state and local tax) for public companies. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour Live Webcast.
