Welcome to IFA USA Branch Website

Who are we?

IFA Logo


Formed in 1938, the International Fiscal Association (IFA) is a leading non-governmental, international organization dealing with tax matters. Headquartered in Rotterdam, IFA is comprised of company tax personnel, tax advisers, university professors, and government officials. IFA provides a unique forum for discussing international tax questions. IFA now has approximately 10,000 members worldwide in over 90 countries, of which 45 have national branches. The objectives of IFA are the study and advancement of international and comparative fiscal law and the financial and economic aspects of taxation.


The USA Branch is the largest IFA branch, with approximately 1,000 members. The Branch is divided into 15 regions, each headed by a Regional Vice President (RVP) and a local committee. The Regions are active and routinely host events and conferences for members and guests. The locations of the regions and the contact information for the RVPs can be found by clicking on the "Organization" section above.

The USA Branch hosts a two-day conference in late February/early March of each year consisting of presentations by eminent international tax experts on topics, planning ideas and issues of current importance. The venue rotates among Washington, DC, New York, NY, and other cities (the 2010 Conference will be held held in Philadelphia). The current schedule of IFA programs and conferences is available in the "Events" section in the right-hand column.

Graduate Tax Programs Database

For those considering an advanced tax degree and those looking for opportunities to hire new graduates, this website includes a database listing every graduate tax program in the country with details for contacting the school to get more information.
