This is a new series. This program is sponsored by KPMG.

Each year, new regulations, whether they be on the local, state or federal level, are implemented that affect the tax liabilities of the technology community. As we all know, the technology sector has a unique set of circumstances regarding taxes, taxability, and tax credits. Stay up to date on the issues that may affect your company!

This program is a must for business, legal, and financial, people - anyone at a software or Internet company concerned about Tax Issues!

Some the topics that will be covered:

  • Recent federal tax developments affecting technology companies: 2002 Tax legislation extends carryback period for net operating losses
  • International taxation: Transfer pricing issues and other international developments
  • State sales tax issues: "Load and Leave" software, shrink-wrap software, other software licenses
