2018 Meeting Eagle Lodge West
April 19â20, 2018
Every spring, the California Lawyers Association sponsors the Eagle Lodge West Conference. This event is run by the Taxation Section and its State and Local Tax Committee. The conference is designed to provide government and private tax practitioners an opportunity to extensively discuss emerging tax policy problems, with the hope that solutions can be identified and incorporated into legislative or regulatory reform efforts of the Tax Section. The annual conference, which began in the early 1990s, traces its roots to the former federal tax Eagle Lodge conference sponsored by the New York University School of Law.
The 2018 Eagle Lodge West Conference took place April 19 to 20, 2018 at the Vintner’s Inn located in Sonoma County. The participants discussed important topics with an aim at making sound policy recommendations applicable to California taxes. The conference is split into two committees: the property and sales tax committee and the income and franchise tax committee.
The following summarizes the discussions that took place in each of those committees:
