KPMG LLP has announced the establishment of the Tax Governance Institute, an open forum for board members, management, stakeholders and government representatives to debate various aspects of tax oversight and management.Through video and audio Web casts, roundtables, other events, and its Web site, the institute’s goal is to regularly bring together interested parties to discuss tax matters of common concern relating to day-to-day and long-term management of corporate tax risk.

Hank Gutman, principal in KPMG’s Washington National Tax practice and former chief of staff of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, has been named to head the institute.

The institute’s inaugural event, a video Web cast, will be moderated by Hank Gutman. “Equity-based Compensation: Tax, Accounting and Security & Exchange Commission Implications,” will take place on Jan. 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. (EST). Individuals interested in attending can register by logging on to

The institute will soon announce regularly scheduled events. Other online features will include a regularly updated library of thought leadership and relevant business news, links to other sites of interest and an interactive polling capacity to help gauge the marketplace’s awareness of emerging topics.
