International Tax Resource Center 

    As both individual and business taxpayers conduct their affairs on a more global basis, CPAs have to be prepared to assist them not only with their domestic tax requirements but with their international tax needs as well. 

    In an effort to help practitioners navigate the complexities of international tax related topics and issues, we have launched a New International Tax Resource Center filled with guides and checklists related to a variety of international tax topics.

    We would like to extend a huge thank you to our volunteer members of the International Tax Technical Resource Panel (TRP) and related task forces for their time spent developing and reviewing the resources.

    Practice Guides


    Notice to Readers

    The international guides and checklists are designed as educational and reference material for the members of the Tax Section and others interested in the subject. They do not establish standards or preferred practices.

    Although much thought and effort have gone into the development of these resources, they are subject to change. These resources are issued as drafts only, and you retain responsibility for their final content. Please review them carefully and make any changes necessary for your specific use.

    If you are not a member and would like to take advantage of these resources you can join the Tax Section!
