FTA Uniformity Webinar

The Federation of Tax Administrators (FTA) Tobacco Tax Section Uniformity Committee is excited to announce that on Friday, August 18, 2017 from 9:30AM -12:00PM PST the Technology Subcommittee will be hosting a Technology Technical Session that will be available through webinar viewing. This breakout session will be taking place during the August Uniformity meeting and will be broadcast live for those that can’t make it to the meeting in Spokane later this month.

The target audience of this webinar are those people directly involved in technology and electronic reporting at your company. The intent of this webinar is to update and discuss technical issues surrounding the uniform cigarette and tobacco XML schemas. The FTA Technology Subcommittee will be covering the following topics:

  • Xpath documents for the schemas
  • Import/Export schemas – schemas for states to use to import data from another state or export data to another state
  • State schema naming version standards
  • Uniformity Filing Guide discussion – What information should be included? Code tables, naming standards, best practices, etc.
  • Data restrictions of elements

Please note the only session that will be available via webinar is the Technology Technical Session on that Friday morning. If you are interested in attending this webinar, please click here to register.

There is no cost to attend this webinar and you will have the opportunity to ask questions as the information is being presented.
