The International Fiscal Association invites nominations by April 1, 2013 for:
- The Mitchell B. Carroll Prize: In order to encourage scientific work, the IFA has instituted a Prize as a tribute to its first Honorary President, Mitchell B. Carroll. This Prize is awarded for a work dealing with international fiscal questions, comparative fiscal law or local fiscal law with the emphasis on the relationships with the fiscal law of foreign jurisdictions. Competition for the Prize is open to lawyers, accountants and economists. There is an age limit of 35.
- Maurice Lauré Prize: The IFA has instituted a Prize in order to encourage scientific work on international indirect taxation. The Prize is named in honour of Maurice Lauré, who was instrumental in the first implementation of the Value Added Tax system, now applied in more than 160 jurisdictions.
- Poster Programme: In 1993 IFA initiated a so-called "Poster Programme" to promote young students to study and discuss international taxation. The programme is open to a maximum of ten students graduating in international taxation who are writing a thesis on a theoretical or practical subject.
