National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson will convene an international conference on taxpayer rights later this year.

The inaugural conference will take place in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 18-19, 2015. It will bring together presentations from government officials, scholars, and practitioners from around the world to explore how taxpayer rights serve as a foundation for effective tax administration.

Panelists will discuss issues such as:

  • Rights to confidentiality and privacy in an age of transparency;
  • The role of tax tribunals in protecting taxpayer rights;
  • Taxpayer rights and procedural justice in audit and collection activities;
  • The roles of taxpayer advocates, defenders, and ombuds in protecting taxpayer rights and promoting voluntary compliance;
  • Challenges in operationalizing taxpayer rights in both mature and developing tax administrations; and, 
  • Guiding theory and principles underlying taxpayer rights.

“We’ve gathered the top international thought leaders to discuss the most pressing taxpayer rights issues,” said Olson. “The rich, thought-provoking dialogue will span cross-border matters and shed light on shared challenges and successes. The conference is truly a must-attend for anyone concerned with global taxpayer rights and administration.”
