Tax Symposium

Third Annual Mark Solomon Tax Symposium

October 27, 2015
Troy Campus
8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Five topics will challenge current thought, introduce provocative ideas, or present divergent sides of an issue.

“We present papers that provide a new perspective on an old body of practice and policy, or introduce nuances that can change social attitudes or somehow enlighten the practice of taxation,” said Daniel S. Hoops, J.D., LL.M, associate professor, Accounting and Taxation, and Symposium Chairman.  “In the first two years of the Solomon Symposium, the topics have been really interesting, and each speaker brought a unique perspective to the presentation,” he added.

Initial presenters:

  • Daniel Hoops, J.D., LL.M, Associate Professor of Accounting and Taxation, Walsh College
  • Jason Pivoz, MST, CPA, CGMA, Member Mellen, Smith, & Pivoz PLC

Four hours of continuing education credit available.
Tickets are $45 for Walsh alumni and partners, $20 for students, and $90 for all others.  Full breakfast is provided.

The symposium is named in honor of the late professor of Taxation and Business Law and director of the Mark Solomon Tax Research Center at Walsh.

Professor Solomon was the driving influence behind Walsh’s tax curriculum which emphasizes tax research.  The Walsh College Library houses one of the most comprehensive tax collections in the country and is used as a resource by tax researchers throughout Michigan.
