EDITOR’S NOTE: This event was postponed due to COVID-19 and rescheduled to Nov. 13, 2020. Read about the new event here.

GULFPORT, Fla. – The Tax Law Society at Stetson University College of Law will present the Stetson Tax Innovators Exchange (S.T.I.X.) on March 31, 2020, featuring IRS Deputy Director Sunita Lough and renowned tax attorney Marc Simonetti.

S.T.I.X. is a new and forward-thinking tax law collaboration event focused almost exclusively on tax practitioners – those working in the trenches every day.  The nation’s top tax attorneys will dive into bleeding edge approaches to the practice of tax law and lead group discussions where practitioners can share challenges they face…and have a room full of the greatest tax minds in the country grab a white board and work the problem out with them.

This interactive seminar will feature topics that run the gamut, but the overall goal is to ensure attendees leave armed with useful new techniques to advance not only their practice, but the field itself.

The first event in this innovative annual series will feature presentations by:

  • Sunita Lough, the new IRS Deputy Commissioner of Enforcement and Services –  A graduate of George Mason University Law School with an LLM in Taxation from Georgetown University School of Law, Lough has filled a variety of roles in her 25 years with the IRS.
  • Marc Simonetti, partner with Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP – Recognized by Chambers USA: Guide to Leading Business Lawyers in the area of tax, Simonetti is well known for his expertise in state and local taxation.

This event is sponsored by the Tax Section of The Florida Bar. Cost is $40 and includes two CLE credits and refreshments, followed by a networking opportunity with open bar.
