William Byrnes' Tax, Wealth, and Risk Intelligence

William Byrnes (Texas A&M) tax & compliance articles

International Tax Training

“Texas A&M University is among the pioneers of change in tax education.” – Ernst & Young’s Tax Insights Magazine (2016)

“The central function of the tax office has evolved from strategy and planning into risk management enabled by technology”, says Professor William Byrnes. “This evolution has been accelerated by trends — primarily globalization, transparency and regulatory reform — and by the OECD (through the project on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting, or BEPS), the United States (through the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) as well as the European Union.”
