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 panel will present their findings, which include “Best Practices” in a two-hour Live webinar.
