Value Added Tax Programs


The Institute is the premier organization for Value Added Tax (VAT) education.  IPT’s VAT School and VAT Symposium are the only programs offered in the United States for tax professionals seeking comprehensive education in this discipline.

Value Added Tax School

IPT's Value Added Tax (VAT) School is a four-day program that provides an intermediate, but broad, foundation in the theory and practical aspects of worldwide VAT. During the School, participants will receive a comprehensive review and analysis of many different and essential VAT principles and concepts, including compliance, research, accounting, audit, ethics, and other technical skills.

Attendees work through the curriculum with interacting instructors leading the discussion. The school's sessions are led by a diverse faculty who come from industry and consulting sectors and are backed by real-world experience.

VAT Symposium


IPT's VAT Symposium is an excellent resource for state and local tax professionals seeking to better understand the complicated workings of Value Added Tax. This program provides an exclusive opportunity for education in VAT and its global impact; deep dives into VAT issues; and provides foundational knowledge in VAT in a technical yet practical way.

This two-day program is paired with and immediately follows the Sales Tax Symposium, providing the opportunity for the cross-training of multi-discipline attendees.
