Tax Controversy Training

May 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service invites interested attorneys, law students, CPAs and EAs to attend a free training session on handling IRS and Maryland tax controversy cases for low-income taxpayers on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at MVLS’ office at 201 N. Charles St., Suite 1400, Baltimore, MD 21201. Continental breakfast will be served. This training is available via webinar, but will not be available as a recording for future viewing. 

The course will be taught by experienced tax attorneys, Gerald Kelly and Cheri Wendt-Taczak; IRS Local Taxpayer Advocate, James Leith; and Assistant Director, Compliance Division, Comptroller of Maryland, Jay Maschas. While the training will cover handling tax cases generally, the focus of this session will be on the mechanics of advocating for the taxpayer who is battling with tax collection issues.

If you are not already a volunteer with MVLS, you can sign up to join our volunteer panel here. There is no fee to attend but each participant will be asked to accept one tax controversy case over the next six months. You can contact Janice Shih at 443-451-4061 for more information.
