Anderson Schools Host Tax Forum

April 13, 2000

ALBUQUERQUE – Tax credits are making headlines – particularly in New Mexico – and The Anderson Schools of Management at The University of New Mexico is sponsoring a program April 24 to delve into this hot topic.

The Accounting and Management of Technology programs are hosting a public forum to address the Federal income tax credit for increasing research activities. Representative Heather Wilson is the featured speaker.

“This tax credit is one of the primary tools in the Internal Revenue Code for encouraging innovative firms,” said Craig White, assistant professor of accounting at The Anderson Schools and event coordinator. “The future form of this tax advantage and its implementation have a direct impact on economic development in New Mexico and having Heather Wilson lead us in a discussion about this is a great community opportunity.”

In addition to opening a dialogue about the tax credit, Congresswoman Wilson will discuss other initiatives she is working on aimed at benefiting small businesses.

The forum, crafted for CPAs, business leaders, and students, will be Monday, April 24 from approximately 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Albuquerque Marriott. For more information, call 277-8777.
