Collection Overview
Title:Institute of Taxation records
Call Number:A57
Volume:1.00 cubic ft. (1 box)
Scope and Content Note:The collection includes the published transcripts of many of the tax forums presented by Northeastern University's Institute of Taxation (IT) between 1955 and 1965. In addition to a full accounting of the proceedings, the published transcripts also include lists of registered participants, speakers, panelists, and sponsoring organizations. The majority of the transcripts are bound. The Massachusetts forums are represented more completely than the scattered holdings for the federal forums.
Historical Note:The Institute of Taxation (IT) existed ca. 1955-1965 under the auspices of the Northeastern University College of Business Administration, with ties to the Division of Continuing Education. In the 1950s and 1960s, IT presented a series of tax forums as an opportunity for continuing education for local tax professionals. The Federal Tax Forums and Federal Tax Institutes were presented in conjunction with the professional accounting societies of New England. The Massachusetts Tax Forums were presented in conjunction with Massachusetts's professional accounting societies and with the cooperation of the State Tax Department. Each gathering featured speakers from several branches of the tax professional community and question-and-answer sessions with tax experts. Several of the forums were focused on new tax legislation.
Arrangement:Chronological by forum.
