The Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce is convening the inaugural Arkansas Tax Conference on November 2, at the Capital Hotel in Little Rock. Dover Dixon Horne is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the event. This one-day seminar will feature an in depth look at legal, administrative and policy issues surrounding Arkansas taxes.
Besides your favorite DDH tax attorneys, planned speakers and panelists at the event will include representatives from the Department of Finance and Administration, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, the Arkansas Assessment Coordination Department, the Washington County Assessor's Office, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the Economic Development Alliance of Jefferson County, the Poultry Federation, Tyson Foods, Entergy, EY, BKD, Frost, Pritchett Sales & Use Tax Consulting, Friday Eldredge & Clark, and Mitchell Williams.
General sessions include a discussion of tax legislation and major developments with senior DFA leadership, federal tax reform and its impact on Arkansas, trends in the Arkansas economy (with J.D. Foster from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce), updates on economic development credits and incentives, and wrapping up with a panel on Arkansas tax reform. There also will be breakout sessions focusing on sales tax for manufacturers, other sales tax issues, income tax, property tax, tax issues for agriculture, and medical marijuana. The conference will provide seven hours of CPE credit and six hours of CLE credit. A networking reception in the Capital Hotel Bar will follow the conference.
