Americas Tax Awards get off to positive start

The leaders of the tax community in the Americas came to the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York on September 28 to celebrate the cutting-edge tax work done in the region in the past 12 months or so at International Tax Review's first Americas Tax Awards.

Awards were given to the transfer pricing firms and tax firms of the year in 12 jurisdictions or cities. Four pan-American prizes were also awarded. Deloitte took the trophy for tax firm of the year in North America, while Ernst & Young won the tax firm of the year award for Latin America.
