Many tax practitioners think their clients are insulated from the world of international tax issues. However, as the business environment continues to evolve globally, tax practitioners need to make sure they are taking inventory of various international tax matters. International tax policies can dramatically affect business decisions, job creation and retention and office and plant locations. Having exposure to international tax issues will allow tax practitioners to spot potential issues and provide a value-add service to clients.
In this Tax Section Odyssey episode, April Walker, CPA, CGMA, from the AICPA Tax Section and Jason Freeman JD, CPA, Managing Member — Freeman Law, highlight the latest happenings in the current and future international tax landscape. Jason provides an avenue for CPA practitioners to learn more at the upcoming Freeman Law International Tax Symposium taking place November 18-19, 2021 and shares various AICPA resources and programs.
