CARROLLTON, Texas, Nov. 5, 2012
-Thomson Reuters kicked off its annual SYNERGY conference for U.S.-based users of its ONESOURCE suite of tax software solutions today at the Gaylord Texan Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.  

More than 1,400 corporate tax professionals are attending hundreds of educational sessions during the three-day conference. The event is one in a series of ONESOURCE customer conferences taking place around the world this season. Earlier sessions took place in Sydney, Melbourne, and London, and the final event in the series is scheduled for Sao Paulo later this month.

The ONESOURCE platform is the market leader in corporate tax compliance, with solutions addressing income tax, transfer pricing, indirect tax, trust tax, and more.

During the opening session, Brian Peccarelli, president of the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters, noted the challenge faced by tax professionals as they grapple with the ramifications of increased globalization, regulatory complexity, and government audit activity.
