The Atlanta Chapter hosted its first monthly luncheon of the 2015–16 year in late September at Maggiano’s in Cumberland. Representing Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP (DHG) and serving as guest speakers were Don Dismuke, tax partner in Atlanta, and Phil Laminack, tax manager in Atlanta. Their presentation addressed recent developments and hot topics in corporate taxation. More than 70 tax professionals were in attendance.

In early November, the Atlanta Chapter hosted its annual Half-Day Event presented by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC). Attendees and presenters discussed international issues, mergers and acquisitions, SALT, and transfer pricing updates. Georgia Department of Revenue General Counsel Frank O’Connell spoke during the SALT session on the agency’s continuing emphasis on customer service, technology, and its recent reorganization.
