The primary goal of the International Tax Committee is to promote networking with other professionals interested in the area of International Tax. Other activities of the Committee include providing the article on Current Developments in International Tax to the Texas Tax Lawyer and providing at least three articles on International Tax for publication each year.

The Committee sponsors an annual one-day seminar in the late fall on International Tax. The first symposium was held in 1998 and is attended by approximately 100 tax professionals each year. This symposium has attracted top speakers from around the country.
