Professor Arthur Agulnek


Art Agulnek, a Certified Public Accountant, licensed to practice in Texas and New York, recently retired as a Tax Partner in the Southwest Area (SWA) office of Ernst & Young LLP (EY) where he specialized in the human resources and tax aspects of global assignments. He received a BS in Accounting from Brooklyn College and did graduate work in taxation at the City University of New York. Art is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Texas and New York State Societies of Certified Public Accountants. While at EY, Art was the Global Employment Solutions (GEmS) Area Leader in the SWA and was a member of the firm's Global Employment Solutions advisory leadership team.

Art has been heavily involved with the expatriate/inpatriate tax practice for more than thirty years. Over the last few years, his clients have included global corporations in defense, financial services, natural resources, consumer products, and high tech, and he has assisted them in developing strategies to minimize the costs of global assignments. His client responsibilities have included Mobil Corporation, General Electric, Texas Instruments, Bell Helicopter, American Airlines, The Sabre Group, ARCO International, Associates First Capital Corp., ClubCorp, and Lockheed Martin Corporation.

Art is currently using his consulting experiences to work with companies that are expanding their operations outside the U.S., seeking approaches to maximize best practices and minimize their costs of global assignments. He is also working with senior executives on issues relating to the financial and tax implications of global transfers.

Art has been a frequent speaker on expatriate/inpatriate taxation and international compensation matters, and has addressed forums on expatriate topics for organizations in the U.S., such as the World Trade Institute, Tax Executives Institute, American Payroll Association, North American Payroll Association, OIRDG, and ORC. In addition, Art has co-authored articles entitled Controlling Costs of International Assignments: A Practical Approach, and Tax Reimbursement Policies for Foreign Nationals in the United States.
