TTN Taxation Network Buenos Aires TTN Tax Prize

In 2008 TTN inaugurated a prize for young tax professionals. This prize will be given on an annual basis. The prize is intended to encourage young tax professionals to take an academic interest in taxation and to give them an opportunity to make their ideas known to a wider audience. It is also intended to encourage individuals to write in a way that can be understood by a non-professional. The prize consists of a fully paid trip to the annual TTN conference, a cheque, a subscription to the associate membership for one year and a trophy.
