New York, N.Y., December 10, 2010 – Carol Doran Klein, an experienced international tax professional, has joined the United States Council for International Business (USCIB), which represents America’s top global companies, as vice president and international tax counsel. In her new role, Ms. Klein will work to advance the views of American business on key tax policies and initiatives affecting companies’ worldwide operations, working out of USCIB’s Washington, D.C. office.
“Carol Doran Klein has a valuable skill set that will add tremendously to our work on global taxation,” said Ronnie Goldberg, USCIB’s executive vice president and chief policy officer. “She brings more than two decades’ experience in international tax policy, and can draw on extensive experience in both the private and public sectors.”
Ms. Klein has served with Deloitte and Arthur Andersen, advising clients on international tax planning. As deputy international tax counsel with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, she coordinated Treasury’s effort on international tax legislation, participated in development of the U.S. Model Income Tax Treaty, and managed the published guidance process. Ms. Klein has also worked at the Internal Revenue Service, where she wrote and reviewed regulations, and provided litigation support. With a JD degree with honors from Albany Law School and a bachelor’s degree in English from the State University of New York at Albany, she has served as an adjunct professor of international tax at Georgetown University.
Ms. Klein will manage USCIB’s Committee on Taxation, which promotes sound, appropriate and consistent international tax policy in the U.S. and overseas, including minimizing double taxation. The committee is chaired by Bill Sample, corporate vice president of worldwide tax at Microsoft Corporation, and encompasses leading tax professionals from USCIB member companies and organizations. It is especially active on OECD matters, in view of USCIB’s role as the American affiliate of the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, and it organizes a yearly conference bringing together top tax officials from the OECD and member governments.
USCIB promotes open markets, competitiveness and innovation, sustainable development and corporate responsibility, supported by international engagement and prudent regulation. Its members include top U.S.-based global companies and professional services firms from every sector of our economy, with operations in every region of the world. With a unique global network encompassing the International Chamber of Commerce, the International Organization of Employers and the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, USCIB provides business views to policy makers and regulatory authorities worldwide, and works to facilitate international trade and investment.
