Welcome to SEATA 2017

Let the Good Times Roll!

The Louisiana Department of Revenue invites you to the 2017 SEATA Conference at The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans July 9-12, 2017. SEATA 2017 includes general and breakout sessions with expert speakers and opportunities to network with tax industry professionals. Breakout sessions focus on sales tax, income tax, property tax, and tax administration. The rich history and culture of New Orleans will enrich the experience of joining friends and colleagues from other SEATA states to share information about the issues we confront on a daily basis as tax administrators.

During the conference, the guest & youth program offers outstanding opportunities to see why New Orleans is considered the crown jewel of the Gulf South. Celebrate the wonders of nature at the Audubon Nature Institute, where you can watch butterflies, feed stingrays, or maybe just spend some time floating in the lazy river. Test your driving skills with NOLA Motorsports Tournament Style Kart Racing or relax and enjoy a Creole Queen Historic Cruise & Brunch down the Mississippi River. The culmination of your New Orleans experience is the spectacular closing banquet at beautiful Mardi Gras World, one of the finest venues in the city. SEATA 2017 will be a unique, magical and memorable experience. We can’t wait to see you!
