About the Committee

The Closely Held Business committee provides private practitioners and government lawyers a forum to share their knowledge and interact on matters involving closely held businesses, including corporate planning, estate and business succession planning, state & local tax planning issues and representation before taxing authorities.

Our committee, given its scope, is able to cover all tax aspects impacting closely held businesses today. Our committee is involved in technical tax comment projects and sponsors a full day of continuing legal education at each of the three tax section meetings each year.

We encourage you to get involved and enjoy the camaraderie of our Committee and fellow practitioners!
