The Section thanks its members for their continued commitment to pro bono. The high level of dedication from individual members and firms is greatly appreciated.
For the last four years the Section has partnered with the military and IRS to bring free tax preparation services to our United States Armed Forces. Section of Taxation members in Washington, D.C.; San Antonio, TX; San Diego, CA; Richmond, VA; and Baltimore, MD train military personnel to prepare tax returns on military bases.
In particular the Section would like to thank Erica Brady, Francine Lipman, Ronald Cluett, Joshua T. Brady, Michael Nicolini, Kevin Jacobs, Keith Sieverding, Keith Kost, Katy David, Heather Szajda, and William Hellams for their commitment to pro bono and to working with Military VITA.
Section member Caroline Ciraolo worked with her firm, Rosenberg | Martin | Greenberg LLP, to sponsor Ft. Meade. Associates and partners of the firm's tax practice will work to provide instruction on tax issues to military personnel. This is the first time a firm has committed to sponsor an entire base and the Section hopes that other firms will follow.
In addition, the Section is grateful to Section member Sheri Dillon and her firm, Bingham McCutchen LLP, for hosting the Low Income Taxpayer Workshop and reception on Monday, December 12 at their D.C. offices. Bingham hosted 100 low income taxpayer clinic practitioners from across the country to provide valuable training on representing their clients before the IRS.
Thank you to all Section members who generously commit their time to Pro Bono!
