2020 Texas Federal Tax Institute
La Cantera Resort | San Antonio, Texas
The Texas Federal Tax Institute brings together leading Corporate, Partnership and Real Estate Tax Professionals from across the United States.
The TexFed team has been busily working on issues surrounding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its impact on this year’s 36th Annual Texas Federal Tax Institute. Rest assured that our goal is clear—to fulfill the mission of educating the tax professionals who attend our Institute while taking reasonable steps to limit the risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID 19.
Towards that end, we have been working with La Cantera Resort in San Antonio to either move the date of the program from June 3-5, 2020, to August 26-28, 2020, or to cancel the 2020 program entirely. Our discussions with La Cantera have been amicable and productive thus far, but it may be a few more days before we have clarity on our options with them.
Meanwhile, one thing is clear: The 2020 Texas Federal Tax Institute will NOT be held on the previously scheduled June dates. It appears that, fortuitously, La Cantera cancelled most if not all of your hotel reservations accidentally. Please ensure that those are cancelled. Also, if you have already purchased your plane tickets, it appears that all of such fares for the relevant airlines may be cancelled without penalty at this time. Please do so.
To our valued speakers—thanks for sticking with us thus far. To our treasured attendees—thank you for your continued support. To our invaluable sponsors—many, many thanks for your steadfastness through these times. The combination of our speakers, attendees and sponsors produced a record year for TexFed in 2019, and whenever we come together again we will expect even greater success.
We will continue to monitor the situation and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the city of San Antonio, and Bexar County, keeping you apprised of any further changes. When the Board of TexFed makes its final decision regarding this year’s program, we will inform you of that decision promptly.
With continued wishes for your safety,
Gene Wolf, President
Kevin Thomason, Chairman of the Board

History of Texas Federal Tax Institute
The Texas Federal Tax Institute is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www.nasbaregistry.org.
The Texas Federal Tax Institute (TFTI) started in very modest fashion. The State Bar of Texas (SBOT) sponsored several basic tax CLE programs in the early 1980s, but practitioners clearly wanted additional programs that addressed more sophisticated, cutting-edge issues facing tax practitioners. In 1985, desiring deeper tax CLE content, Scott Morris – a former professor who had taught tax courses in Dallas at what is now the SMU Dedman School of Law – created a one-day real estate and partnership taxation seminar which was conducted in Dallas. Although the State Bar lent its name to the program, Scott took the entire responsibility for putting on the program and donated any profits to the SBOT Tax Section.
