MFM To Host Media-Specific Tax Summit In March
Media Financial Management Association’s (MFM’s) Media Tax Summit will be a two-day virtual event. Understanding that the role of the media tax executive is changing, co-chairs Paul Nesterovsky, senior vice president of tax, Sinclair Broadcast Group; Sean Hetzler, senior director of tax, Tegna; and Dan McGuire, partner, state and local tax, KPMG, are preparing an event focused on building today’s best-in-class media tax department. The virtual seminar will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET on both Tuesday, March 2, and Wednesday, March 3.
Technological advances, the evolving workplace environment, and new legislation are converging to transform the expectations for and responsibilities of the media tax department. MFM has assembled expert speakers to cover topics including: CFO expectations; federal stimulus and relief implications for media companies; tax considerations for corporate people strategies; and a look at new state taxes and new state interpretations of existing regulations.
“The MFM Media Tax Summit has been specifically formulated with members’ needs in mind,” said Mary M. Collins, president and CEO of MFM and its BCCA subsidiary, the media industry’s credit association. “They can get general tax information from a number of different sources. What only MFM can offer is media-specific information and experiences. Thanks to strong leadership from Paul, Sean and Dan, we are able to offer a program with takeaways targeted to the needs and interests of industry tax professionals.”
Registration is free for MFM corporate members, $100 for each of the first two attendees from a non-corporate industry member organization and complimentary for each subsequent media industry registrant. Others, including those who work for companies that offer products, goods, or services to the media industry, must pay either the member rate or the non-member rate (which includes a one-year trial membership) for each Summit attendee.
Registered participants are eligible to receive up to four (4) CPE credits toward their certified public accounting (CPA) license. MFM is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
