“Robots, Drones, Self-Driving Cars, A.I. – Oh My!!”

With recent advancements in artificial intelligence, our world and how we interact with technology is rapidly evolving. People and companies are taking full advantage of the efficiencies and luxuries of robots, drones, and autonomous vehicles, and there is no end in sight. But in this ever changing technological landscape, there are serious tax related questions that remain unanswered at the state and federal level.

This panel will discuss the impact these new technologies will have on the future of taxation, and what tax practitioners should think about moving forward. The panel will also include on-site technology demonstrations geared for tax practitioners.
