Counsel Alan Appel Presents at New York University Summer Institute in Taxation
July 1, 2011
New York Counsel Alan Appel will address international tax issues this month when he takes part in two conferences at New York University Summer Institute in Taxation. The events – part of an eight-part program devoted to taxation – are aimed at attorneys and accountants who want to refresh their skills or learn about new developments in legislation and regulation.
The first conference, July 11-13, provides an introduction to international taxation. Appel will join a panel of lawyers from other New York law firms to present "Case Studies for Outbound and Inbound Investment." On completing this program, attendees will gain a broad-based foundation in the federal income taxation of cross-border transactions and circumstances, both inbound and outbound.
The second conference, July 14-15, covers advanced international taxation. Appel will discuss cross-border real estate investing in a presentation titled "Foreign Persons Investing in U.S. Real Estate: Partnerships and other Structures, Opportunities and Traps." Attendees of this program will develop a more sophisticated knowledge of "hot button" issues and opportunities in international taxation.
Appel focuses his practice in international and domestic tax planning involving taxation of mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, joint ventures, limited liability companies and tax controversy matters. On behalf of the American Bar Association Tax Section, he had primary responsibility for drafting and submitting comments to the U.S. Treasury Department and IRS concerning the scope of the guidance provided by the proposed regulations under Section 1446 of the Internal Revenue Code and also was asked by the Office of the Chief Counsel to train its attorneys on this issue. Widely published on tax matters, Appel is on the Board of Advisors for the Journal of International Taxation and the Journal of Taxation and Regulation of Financial Institutions. He is chair of the American Bar Association Section of Taxation’s U.S. Activities of Foreigners and Tax Treaties Committee and a member of the adjunct tax faculty of the New York Law School.
These taxation programs, presented by NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies, include a national faculty of attorneys, accountants and other taxation professionals. All of the programs take place at the Westin New York in Times Square.
