KPMG: Leading Contributions To Tax Industry Recognized
August 2, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
Harley Duncan has been recognized by the Federation of Tax Administrators (FTA) and the Institute for Professionals in Taxation (IPT) for his contributions to the tax industry. He is a State and Local Tax managing director in the firm’s Washington National Tax practice.
The IPT presented Duncan with its Special Award at its annual conference in June. Duncan received the award for his contributions to the development of Value-Added Tax (VAT) educational offerings within the Institute, service as Overall Education Chair and Symposium Chair of the Institute’s VAT Symposia, and participation as a speaker and committee member for multiple Institute educational programs through the years.
The FTA has renamed its annual award for leadership and service in Duncan’s honor. The award will now be called the Harley T. Duncan Award for Leadership and Service in commemoration of Duncan’s 20 years of service to the organization, where he was formerly executive director.
Brian Stromen, national leader of KPMG LLP’s State and Local Tax practice commented:
“Harley is a highly regarded adviser in the state and local tax community and renowned as a thought leader on a full spectrum of state and local tax issues, including U.S. indirect tax, VAT, state and local sales and income franchise taxes, digital goods and services taxes, and tax in the cloud,” he said. “These recognitions further underscore Harley’s leadership and contributions to the tax community and we’re honored to have him as a member of the KPMG team.”
