What is the In­ter­na­tional Fis­cal As­so­ci­ation (IFA)?

The In­ter­na­tional Fis­cal As­so­ci­ation (IFA) was es­tab­lished in 1938 with its headquar­ters in the Neth­er­lands. It is the only non-gov­ern­mental and non-sect­oral in­ter­na­tional or­gan­isa­tion deal­ing with fis­cal mat­ters. IFA has now nearly 12,000 mem­bers out of more than 100 coun­tries. In many coun­tries, there are IFA branches es­tab­lished. Every year, an an­nual con­gress is or­gan­ized, which takes place in dif­fer­ent cit­ies throughout the world.

IFA Aus­tria

IFA Aus­tria is the Aus­trian branch of the IFA con­sist­ing of all IFA mem­bers res­id­ent in Aus­tria. It rep­res­ents their in­terests within the IFA and helps to sup­port the ob­ject­ives of the IFA in Aus­tria.

An­nual IFA Con­gress

IFA seeks to achieve these ob­jects through its An­nual Con­gresses and the scien­ti­fic pub­lic­a­tions re­lat­ing thereto as well as through scien­ti­fic re­search. Al­though the op­er­a­tions of the IFA are es­sen­tially scien­ti­fic in char­ac­ter, the sub­jects se­lec­ted for the con­gress take ac­count of cur­rent fis­cal devel­op­ments and changes in local le­gis­la­tion.

Wolfgang Gassner Science Prize

IFA Aus­tria an­nu­ally of­fers the Wolfgang Gassner Science Prize for hab­il­it­a­tions, dis­ser­ta­tions, dip­loma thesis and other scien­ti­fic pa­pers in the field of In­ter­na­tional tax law. This prize is awar­ded in the form of spon­sor­ship prizes and schol­ar­ships for at­tend­ing the an­nual IFA con­gress.
