The Institute for Professionals in Taxation (IPT) has recognized three Alston & Bird attorneys for their outstanding contributions to the organization.
Partner Clark Calhoun received IPT’s 2016 “New Member Achievement Award” in recognition of his committed stewardship and service contributions across all membership levels.
Also recognized are partner Mary Benton and associate Andrew Yates, recipients of IPT’s 2016 award for “Sales Tax Article of the Year.”
The article – “A Sticky Situation: Sourcing Sales and Use Tax on Cloud-Based Transactions” – looks at the complexities facing states in taxing cloud-based goods and services and identifying where transactions should be sourced.
Published in the May 2015 issue of IPT Insider, the article was selected based on the timeliness of the topic, perceived breadth of affected IPT membership, scholarliness and clarity of analysis.
IPT is a nonprofit educational association founded in 1976 that serves more than 4,000 members representing almost 1,500 corporations, firms and taxpayers throughout the United States and Canada.
