Tax Executives Institute
The Tax Executives Institute (TEI) is a non-profit, international association of business executives responsible for the tax affairs of their employers.
Founded in 1944 by a group of fifteen prominent corporate tax executives in New York City, TEI has grown to more than 7,000 members in 54 worldwide chapters representing 3,000 of the leading businesses around the world. Approximately ten percent of the Institute's members are affiliated with Canadian corporations. In 1999, TEI founded its first chapter in Europe, and the first Asia chapter came along 2005.
The mission of TEI is to enhance and improve the tax system and to serve its members, their employers, and society generally by facilitating interaction among, and the training of, members and their staffs, by effectively advocating its members’ views, and by promoting competence and professionalism in both the private and government sectors.
The UK-based publication Tax Business magazine recently described TEI members as the “biggest, richest, and most influential group of taxpayers in the world.”[this quote needs a citation]
