Welcome to The Chicago Tax Club

The Chicago Tax Club, organized in 1933, is a nonprofit association consisting of individual tax professionals employed by corporations and other businesses. The principal function of our organization is providing educational and networking events, in order to assist our members in identifying and resolving tax compliance, planning and audit issues relating to their employers.

The Club is dedicated to the professional development of our members, promoting an interchange of ideas and mutual assistance among members and providing the opportunity to participate in accredited continuing professional education programs (CPE and CLE). The Club also fosters the highest standards of integrity, competence and professional ethics and it recognizes that an atmosphere of mutual trust and confidence must prevail among the membership, other tax professionals, employers and government tax administrators.

We are nearing the end of another successful (albeit very unique) year of The Chicago Tax Club (“CTC”).  While we were only able to hold one in-person meeting due to the global pandemic, the CTC Executive Board and committees have worked diligently to continue to provide professional development and networking opportunities for our members.  Since May, we have partnered with numerous large firms in the Chicago area to provide over 30 webinars, and our committees have held smaller roundtable events and Zoom meetings.  The CTC plans on continuing to co-sponsor webinars in 2021 at least until we are able to hold in-person meetings.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT--The CTC Executive Board has decided to extend all CTC memberships, at no cost, to those who were members as of December 31, 2019, as well as those who joined in 2020.  This free membership will allow CTC members to have full access to our virtual offerings, and will be in effect in 2021 until we hold in-person meetings again.  Once in-person meetings resume, we will reinstate a prorated membership fee for the remainder of the year.

May you and your families have a happy and healthy holiday season.  We look forward to seeing you in 2021!

2020 President                 2020 1st Vice President
