      Delaware Law Presents Annual Tax Institute Conference

      Delaware Tax Institute

      Widener University Delaware Law School hosts the annual Delaware Law Institute program for attorneys and accountants.

      On Dec. 1, Dean Rodney Smolla welcomed approximately 100 attorneys and accountants to the Ruby R. Vale Moot Courtroom at Widener University Delaware Law School for the annual Delaware Tax Institute program.

      This year’s program, titled “2017: Tax Developments and Planning Opportunities in an Unstable Environment,” was presented by Delaware Law School and co-sponsored by the Delaware Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals and the Delaware State Bar Association.

      Each year, the Tax Institute conference offers an all-day program providing updates on federal and state income tax developments, recent developments in estate planning, and other topics of importance such as the presentation on “Protecting Your Clients and Yourself in Avoiding a Professional Nightmare from Data Compromises.” A total of six panels featuring 16 speakers gave updates for the institute.

      This year’s distinguished speaker was Dr. Mark J. Mazur, the Robert C. Pozen Director, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, in Washington, D.C.  Dr. Mazur provided an update on federal tax legislative developments.

      The Delaware Tax Institute Planning Committee is comprised of prominent Delaware attorneys and tax professionals. The program is unique in that it offers continuing legal education credits to attorneys as well as continuing professional education credits to accountants and tax professionals.

      Widener University Delaware Law School acquired the Delaware Tax Institute 10 years ago and has hosted the program annually at the law school since 2007.
