New York, N.Y., December 17, 2013 – USCIB’s Carol Doran Klein has been named one of International Tax Review‘s “Global Tax 50” for 2013, reflecting her own expertise and achievements as well as the business community’s close engagement with policy makers on international taxation.
In its profile of Klein, USCIB’s vice president for taxation, the influential publication said: “In a year that has seen large multilateral moves to tackle base erosion and profit shifting [BEPS], Klein has had her plate full in ensuring the concerns of U.S. business are heard. And with multiple action items on the OECD’s BEPS Action Plan scheduled for completion in 2014, her influence will continue to be critical if the views of U.S. business are to be heard in this international context.”

Carol has become an indispensible resource for the business community and is providing a strong, knowledgeable voice on global tax matters.”
