MABVP MONTHLY NEWS – June, 2013 Volume 18, Number 9

Next Meeting: September 19, 2013

Place: Schechter Dokken Kanter
100 Washington Avenue South, Suite 1600, Minneapolis, MN

Time: Noon – 1:30 PM

Topic: Annual Elections followed by program (topic/speaker pending)

Recap: Thank you to Guy Sanschagrin and Paul Flignor who took us through the basics of Transfer Pricing at our May meeting. This area is understandably confusing as definitions for intangible and tangible property are open for interpretation by the various tax authorities – including the IRS. Regulations governing taxable and non-taxable aspects of a business are equally subject to controversy. Guy and Paul then guided the audience through tax planning issues as well as tax risks. Additionally, they offered to collaborate with our member firms to explore opportunities to serve our clients in this area.
