MILWAUKEE—The Deloitte Center for Multistate Taxation at the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee hosts the 13th Annual Multistate Tax Institute on Thursday, June 18, at the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, 375 S. Moorland Rd. in Brookfield, Wis.

The day’s agenda includes a “U.S. Supreme Court Watch,” updates on recent multistate tax decisions in state courts, new developments in nexus, taxation without factor representation, and state tax reporting under the International Financial Reporting Standards.

The national conference brings together the collective wisdom and experience of many of the country’s foremost multistate tax experts, including Paul Frankel (Morrison Foerster, N.Y.), Richard D. Pomp (University of Connecticut School of Law) and Maryann Gall and Laura A. Kulwicki (both of Jones Day, Columbus, Ohio).
