The year in review.
Be Current, Stay Current ... Through Quality Education Programs on Tax Developments and Tax Management Issues
For sixty years, TEI has rightly prided itself on the quality and cost effectiveness of its educational programs. Given the pace of change and the ever-expanding scope of the tax executive's role, it is more important than ever for TEI members to stay informed, and I am pleased to report that TEI stepped forward in a number of important ways.
During the past year, TEI held a full complement of conferences, seminars, courses, and telephone/web conferences. All in all, 2,957 individuals registered for our programs (the number participating is likely considerably more because only one individual need register for a telephone seminar in order for a whole department to "attend"). Our conferences continue to attract top-level keynote speakers, such as Secretary of the Treasury John Snow, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, IRS Commissioner Mark Everson, IRS Chief Counsel Don Korb, and SEC Chief Accountant Donald Nicolaisen, with their remarks being broadcast by C-SPAN or other media outlets.
One aspect of our 2004 Annual Conference deserves mention. I was delighted that 20 former TEI presidents joined us in New Orleans to celebrate the 60th anniversary of our founding. From a group of 14 New York-based tax professionals in 1944 to more than 5,800 tax executives worldwide today, TEI has grown into a truly global organization. The past Institute presidents who attended last fall's conference (and all our former leaders) pursued and built upon the vision of Paul Smith and TEI's other founders; they kept the organization relevant, focused, and member-driven. That Morris Rinehart (our 1964-1965 president) attended the New Orleans meeting--and addressed the conference--was a special treat.
While the conferences are the hallmarks of TEI's educational curriculum, two other programs merit attention--our FAS 109 Seminar in November 2004 (which attracted 349 registrants) and our Senior Tax Executive Conference in May (which sold out and garnered excellent ratings). I was especially pleased that Brunswick Corporation's Chairman and CEO, George Buckley, participated in the STE program. His "CEO's View of Sarbanes-Oxley" was a highlight of the two-day conference.
TEI's committees and staff worked diligently to plan, promote, and execute these programs. If there is a downside to our educational programs, it is that attendance at some programs did not meet our expectations. We remain hopeful the decline is temporary and attributable to external forces (e.g., the uncertain economy and the continuing aftershocks of Sarbanes-Oxley), but are working to identify the causes and, where needed, improve the programs. Among other things, the Institute has expanded its policy of offering discounts to multiple registrants from the same company.
Finally, during the year the Institute completed its 2004-2005 Corporate Tax Department Survey. The survey--a 184-page printed commentary and representative tables, accompanied by a CD-ROM containing more than 12,000 tables--will enable tax executives to benchmark more effectively and efficiently. We had also committed to reviewing the efficacy of a salary survey, and while no decision has been made, significant informal work has been completed.
Be Connected, Stay Connected ... by Enhancing Member Communications and Strengthening Network of Tax Professionals
TEI's launch of a new website in August 2004 helped kickstart the new year. From real-time information on TEI's advocacy and educational activities to the reinvigorated discussion forums to the sites maintained by many of our local chapters to the communications functionality available to all members through the site, TEI's website team created an Internet presence that is both welcoming and informative. We are working to improve the site and thereby make it an indispensable stop on all tax executives' web surfing. If you have not done so already, please log on to www.tei.org and share your ideas for making the site even better.
In late 2004, TEI hired a Communications Specialist and realigned duties of other staff in order to enhance our customer service to members and other users of the site. Among other things, the Institute developed a chapter website administrators guide and held a webconference for chapter website administrators to help them create and enhance their own websites. We also devoted a session at the 2005 Leadership Seminar to the website.
Internet technology and e-mail have expanded the tax executive's network, narrowing the distance that exists among business colleagues and our fellow tax practitioners. This past year we undertook to use a somewhat dated form of technology--telephone conferencing--to enable TEI's Board of Directors to meet more frequently than our traditional three times a year (in conjunction with our conferences and our Annual Meeting of Members). Specifically, we amended the By-Laws to permit telephonic meetings of the Board, and then convened two meetings (in January and June) to "bridge the gap" between our face-to-face meetings. Based on the feedback received, these telephonic meetings will continue.
Be a Voice, Have a Voice ... Through Enhanced Advocacy
In discussing TEI's advocacy activities this past year, it is difficult to know where to begin. We have had an extraordinarily busy year. From our liaison meetings in Ottawa and Washington, to our European Chapter's involvement with the European Union and OECD, to our briefs in state tax cases, to our comments on the American Jobs Creation Act (both before and after its enactment), TEI has striven to give voice to the real-world concerns of the business community. Given our diversity, there may be occasions in which the Institute is unable to take a position, but time and time again, we have weighed in and have had a positive effect on the outcome.
Five projects deserve mention. First, TEI continues to be a leader in opposing the enactment of a provision requiring the Chief Executive Officer to sign either the corporate tax return or a declaration concerning the company's return preparation process. Even if this provision is ultimately enacted, we are confident that we have contributed to the narrowing and refinement of the proposal. (The same is true in respect of our continuing opposition to the codification of the economic substance doctrine, at both the federal and state levels.) Second, we have worked effectively with the IRS and Treasury Department in setting guidance priorities under the 2004 tax law. Third, we successfully advocated for an amendment to Circular 230, recognizing the unique character of in-house tax professionals and therefore exempting them from the more onerous provisions of the IRS regulations that govern "practice before the IRS." Had the Institute's efforts not been successful, all TEI members would be faced with expensive, time-consuming, and (I daresay) non-value-added compliance activities.
The fourth development involved a first--TEI's first-ever testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The Institute's work in support of the Dutch and Barbados treaties--we were one of only two private sector witnesses at the hearing--contributed to the Senate's ultimate approval of the treaties.
The "state of play" on the fifth project--corporate e-filing--is more uncertain. TEI has been in the forefront on this issue, which involves significant tax administration and technology challenges. We reached out to the IRS from the very beginning, raising practical concerns about the IRS mandate and working with both the IRS and outside vendors to identify both problems and their solutions. We also continue to press the IRS to issue early guidance on what type of hardship waivers will be granted, and remain hopeful that meaningful relief will be forthcoming.
TEI's advocacy successes were noteworthy, and I am pleased to say that our Communications Committee and staff worked diligently to share information about our activities with both members and the public. Through the frequent updating of our website, monthly email messages to members, and outreach to tax publications and media outlets, the Institute better communicated both its positions on specific issues as well as the process by which it reached those positions. We also stepped up our efforts to encourage more members to become involved in our projects, and while we can always do more, I am pleased with the progress we have made.
Be Involved, Stay Involved ... By Identifying and Addressing Demographic Trends and Other Barriers to Membership Growth
TEI continued to grow during the year. Our European Chapter held its largest meeting ever in May, and I was honored to travel to Copenhagen and address the group. TEI also expanded to another continent during the year, chartering our first chapte in Asia and thereby expanding the global reach of the Institute's educational, networking, and advocacy benefits. Closer to my home in Chicago, the Institute has taken steps to organize a chapter in Omaha. My congratulations to everyone who contributed to the growth of our chapters.
We also took the opportunity this year to analyze various demographic trends and are in the process of developing an action plan for growth, which we shared with our chapters and regions at the 2005 Leadership Seminar.
Be Efficient, Stay Effective ... by Improving Operation and Management of TEI
Our final set of objectives focused internally--on how efficiently we manage ourselves. In many respects, this has been a year of transition and, to a certain extent, deferred maintenance for TEI. First, we expanded and realigned our staff to address the Institute's changing needs. We added two employees to enhance our use of the Internet and technology, and also welcomed new employees to our conference planning and membership staffs. Perhaps most important, we completed the transition of our legal staff, hiring Eli Dicker as Chief Tax Counsel and naming Mary Lou Fahey our General Counsel. (Eli and Mary Lou are joined on the legal staff by Tax Counsels Jeff Rasmussen and Greg Matson.)
More generally, TEI established a formal system of performance and accountability, which has instilled in both managers and staff a stronger sense of accountability and should yield dividends to the Institute on an ongoing basis. We have also begun the process of addressing the succession planning challenges faced by many small organizations. Finally, we worked to clarify the respective roles of our volunteer leadership, for example, developing a position description for Chapter Representatives to the Institute Board of Directors, thereby enabling them to better fulfill their fiduciary duties.
A review of the Institute's financial statements (consolidated with those of TEI Education Fund, our affiliated section 501(c)(3) organization) confirms that TEI had a very good year financially. The Institute exceeded budget by a substantial margin ($685,855), and realized net revenues of $727,327. TEI's revenues fall into five general categories: dues and initiation fees; continuing education fees; publication income; sponsorship fees; royalties; and investment income. Each plays an important role in ensuring the Institute's financial stability:
* After dipping in the aftermath of 9-11, Dues Revenue (including initiation fees) reached a five-year high this past year--$2,023,725.
* Revenues from Continuing Education remain a significant part of the Institute's revenue picture--with gross revenues of Institute-level programs totalling $1,293,663. Importantly, while we experienced a decline of $31,125 in gross receipts last year, prudent management of expenses allowed us to hold the decline in net CE revenue (per the financial statements) to only $1,216. Overall, net revenues from Continuing (before allocation of overhead) was $608,185.
* Interest and other investment income contributed $125,036 to the Institute's bottom line.
* Our overall good financial results are due in significant measure to the Sponsorship initiative, where the growth in revenue has been substantial. Because of the allocation of Sponsorship revenue to Publications and the allocation of Royalties to Sponsorship and Advertising, the figures for Sponsorship, Publications (primarily Advertising), and Royalties should be viewed in combination. Total revenue for these three sources in the last fiscal year was $2,609,050. As the numbers suggest, TEI's conference sponsorship program has been a success. At the Institute level, the program continues to grow and provide a source of revenue, obviating dues or registration fee increases. In all, the Institute had 39 conference sponsors at either the 2004 Annual or 2005 Midyear Conference (or both). In addition to being a source of revenue, the sponsorship program has permitted the Institute to reach out to additional firms in terms of providing speakers for our educational programs and articles for The Tax Executive; it has also played a role in making TEI members aware of products and service providers that otherwise might have escaped their notice. At the chapter level, too, sponsorship has worked well. In August, the Board adopted guidelines for the chapters to ensure the smooth operation of the overall sponsorship program.
While TEI accomplished a great deal during the year, the Institute must strive continually to meet its members' needs in order to remain the preeminent association of business tax executives. I wish Mike Boyle and his leadership team much success in their efforts to accomplish the goals the Board has set for the year, and I pledge them my ongoing support.
I owe a debt of gratitude to my colleagues and staff at Brunswick Corporation for their support. I also offer thanks to all the members of the Institute to helped make this past year such a fabulous experience for me. From the committee members who worked on submissions or made presentations, to Board members who called me with their views, to our Executive Director and other members of our wonderful Institute staff, and to everyone who offered a kind word or extended courtesies to my husband Paul my sisters Nancy and Pat, their families, and me--you have made this year both wonderful and memorable. Representing TEI before Congress, leading the Institute's delegation to liaison meetings with the IRS and Treasury Department, and their counterparts in Canada; and presiding over our conferences--all have been an honor I could not have anticipated when I joined the Institute. I thank all of you for making it possible.

Standards of Conduct
Since the Mission, Principle, and Purposes of TEI can be achieved only by the observance on the part of its members of the highest standards of professional conduct, the Board of Directors adopted the following:
Tax Executives Institute, Inc., recognizes the following as the standards of conduct for each member in administering tax affairs for which he or she is responsible:
* The member accepts taxes as the cost of civilization and accepts the laws imposing taxes as the mechanism for distributing that cost among businesses and individuals. The member will comply with those laws, whether or not agreeing with them.
* The member recognizes an obligation to minimize company tax liability, within the bounds of the law and to the extent consistent with policies or objectives of the company, having due regard for the interests of society in sound tax policy, and will advise and support action to obtain that objective, to the best of the member's ability.
* The member recognizes an obligation to make an affirmative contribution to the sound administration of tax laws, and to the adoption of sound tax legislation, by cooperation and consultation with the persons charged with those functions, having due regard for the interests of society, as well as the interest of the company and its employees.
* The member accepts each Government representative as a person devoted to fulfilling the obligation to collect revenue honorably in accordance with law. The member will deal with the representatives on that basis, and will take occasion with others to uphold this view of Government representatives. In case of any deviation of a representative from that standard, the member will present the pertinent facts to the authorities authorized to take action with respect to the deviation.
* The member will present the facts required in tax returns and all the facts pertinent to the resolution of questions at issue with representatives of the government imposing the tax.
* The member will employ assistants and outside representatives upon the basis of their technical competence, always having due regard for the highest standards of professional ethics.
* The member will at all times recognize a duty of professionalism and will not use TEI membership to solicit business or sell products to other members.
Tax Executives Institute, Inc. and TEI Education Fund
Audited Consolidated Financial Statements
June 30, 2005 and 2004
Independent Auditor's Report on the Consolidated Financial Statements
To the Board of Directors Tax Executives Institute, Inc. and TEI Education Fund
We have audited the accompanying consolidated statements of financial position of Tax Executives Institute, Inc. and TEI Education Fund (the Organization) as of June 30, 2005 and 2004, and the related consolidated statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Organization's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Tax Executives Institute, Inc. and TEI Education Fund as of June 30, 2005 and 2004, and the changes in their net assets and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Major findings of TEI's 2004-2005 Corporate Tax Department Survey include:
* Nearly 4 in 5 respondent companies had worldwide revenues of $5 billion or less with three-quarters coming from operations in the United States.
* 3 in 4 Senior Tax Executives (STEs) have the title of Director of Tax]Corporate Tax Director or Vice President; regardless of title, the STE most often reports to the Chief Financial Officer.
* Half of the tax departments have 5 or fewer employees. In addition they are responsible for an average of 31 legal entities and 7 in 10 are located at a single location.
* More than half of the tax departments have budgets of $750,000 or less, and one-third have budgets of $1 to $5 million annually.
* During the last 3 years, the typical tax department has increased by fewer than 1 full-time equivalent (FTE) while its budget has increased by 12%.
* 7 in 10 companies reported that they are subject to the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and an additional 1 in 7 of those not subject to the law plan to follow it.
* The most commonly considered control areas for the purposes of Sarbanes-Oxley deal with the calculations of the U.S. tax provisions, deferred accounts, and rate reductions.
Judith P. Zelisko, Chicago Chapter 2004-2005 International President
TEI's Advocacy Scorecard
* Reestablishing a liaison meeting with the Multistate Tax Commission, plus continuing TEI's traditionally strong liaison relationships with government tax agencies in Ottawa and Washington.

* Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on two tax treaties and before the IRS on the advance pricing agreement program.
* Forestalling enactment (to date) of the CEO Certification and Economic Substance Requirement.
* Successfully urging the IRS and Treasury to recognize the unique status of in-house tax professionals in Circular 230, relating to practice before the IRS.
* Engaging the IRS "early and often" in respect of its corporate e filing initiative, thereby making the e-filing mandate more workable, by increasing the time in which to correct errors from 5 days to 20, permitting some international forms to be filed on paper, and allowing certain forms to be attached to the e-filed return in a PDF format.
* Remaining in the forefront of the Treasury and IRS's Schedule M-3 project.

NOTE A--ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY
OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Tax Executives Institute, Inc. (TEI), incorporated in 1944 in New York, is a professional organization for corporate and business employees who are responsible for the tax affairs of their employers in an executive, managerial, or administrative capacity. TEI is exempt from the payment of income taxes on its exempt activities under Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code. However, TEI is subject to tax on its unrelated business activities such as advertising.
TEI Education Fund (the Fund) was formed in 1987 to sponsor or co-sponsor continuing education programs and otherwise to further TEI's educational objectives. The Fund is exempt from the payment of income taxes on its exempt activities under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and has been classified by the Internal Revenue Service as other than a private foundation under Section 509(a)(1).
Principles of consolidation:
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of TEI and its affiliate, the Fund (collectively referred to as the Organization). Significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Basis of accounting:
The Organization prepares its financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting. Revenue is recognized when earned and expense when the obligation is incurred.
Use of estimates:
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Actual results could differ from estimates.
Cash and cash equivalents:
For financial statement purposes, cash and cash equivalents consists of demand deposits and money market accounts.
Accounts receivable consists primarily of amounts owed from customers for advertising. Accounts receivable are presented at the gross amount due to the Organization. The Organization's management periodically reviews the status of all accounts receivable balances for collectibility. Each receivable balance is assessed based on management's knowledge of the customer, the Organization's relationship with the customer, and the age of the receivable balance. As a result of these reviews, allowances are recorded for customer balances deemed to be uncollectible. As of June 30, 2005, the allowance for doubtful accounts receivable totaled $5,351.
Acquisitions of fixed assets greater than $1,000 are recorded at cost and depreciated or amortized using the straight-line basis over the following useful lives: furniture and office equipment--3 to 10 years; leasehold improvements--over the lesser of the remaining life of the office lease or the estimated useful life of the improvements.
Revenue received in advance of the period in which it is earned is deferred to subsequent years.
Unrestricted net assets include those net assets whose use is not restricted by donors, even though their use may be limited in other respects, such as by board designation.
Undesignated: Undesignated net assets are used for the general operations of Organization. TEI has established a reserve policy, the goal of which is to maintain minimum reserves equivalent to at least 50 percent of annual operating expenses. This goal has been met and there are no current plans to increase the reserve except as a result of normal operations.
Designated: Designated net assets include funds that have been designated for use in special project activities. At its June 2004 meeting, the Executive Committee approved a resolution to designate $100,000 for use in the Corporate Tax Department Survey and for the 60th Anniversary Celebration which took place during the year ended June 30, 2005. At its June 2005 meeting, the Executive Committee approved the budget for the year ending June 30, 2006 which included an additional designation for special projects in the amount of $25,000.
Functional allocation of expenses:
The costs of providing various program and supporting service activities have been summarized on a functional basis in the statement of activities. Accordingly, certain costs have been allocated among the program and supporting services benefited.
NOTE B--CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK
Financial instruments that subject the Organization to a concentration of credit risk consist of demand deposits placed with financial institutions that, at times, may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limits. The Organization has not experienced any losses in such accounts. Other financial instruments that potentially subject the Organization to concentration of credit risk consist principally of investments.
