COVID-19 May Tax School Cancellation

Dear Fellow TEI Member and/or Tax School Participant,

It is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of the May Session of the Houston Tax School for the Houston Chapter of Tax Executives, Inc.   However, based on the current COVID -19 guidance from the city, county, state and national authorities, the Board determined that it would be unable to ensure these events could safely occur and thus it is in the best interests of our members, Tax School participants and sponsors to cancel these events,  Additionally, it is becoming increasingly apparent that it is unlikely that the Houston Chapter would be able to have the nationally recognized speakers at our events that our attendees expect due to existing travel and/or meeting restrictions.

If you have paid for a session of the May Tax School which is impacted by this cancellation, you have the following options:

  1. Do nothing and the registration will roll forward to a future event (e.g., a paid registration for May Tax School can be applied to a session of Tax School in either February or May of 2021); or


  2. Email Patty Junkins at by May 15, 2020 and request a refund. Such email should include: your name; the name to whom refund check should be made; mailing address; amount of refund requested; sessions registered.

If your company registers multiple participants at a time, we would request that the company make a single determination for all of its participants to simplify the refund process. We appreciate your patience as we work through these requests.


As always, if you have any questions/comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask any current board member or alternatively, you can email me at
