Membership of the Association is open to individuals and corporations alike. In addition to the right to register for the Annual Congresses at a reduced rate, members of the IFA receive free of charge the two volumes of the "Cahiers de Droit Fiscal International" published annually and the Congress Invitation Programme. Corporate members may send two delegates to the annual Congresses and are consequently supplied with two sets Cahiers and two Congress Invitation Programmes. As an extra service, online versions of the IFA Cahiers as from 1980 have been made available on the website of IFA’s Sister Organisation, the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD) in Amsterdam. IFA members in “good standing” (i.e. having no arrears in their annual membership fees) can access these publications free of charge via the secured section of the IFA website. The Cahiers are also available for IFA members in Epub format. One of the advantages is that new Cahiers will be made available on the Internet as soon as the printed books are available, i.e. annually on June 15.
Accessible to IFA members only are the Documents Databases and the List of IFA members, which are available on the secured part of the website.
The List of Members contains the names and addresses of all IFA members, including applicants for membership who will be admitted at the next Annual Congress. The list contains more than 12,500 addresses which are updated daily on the basis of information supplied by the IFA Branches, or otherwise.
Please note: The Secretary General, upon review of the material to be distributed, may give permission to third parties to purchase the Membership List sold to third parties without email addresses. If you do not wish to be included in the IFA Membership List please send an email to the General Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
