This episode begins with Nina Olson, who retired on July 31, 2019, from as the National Taxpayer Advocate. She founded the Center for Taxpayer Rights and through that Center is establishing a Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Support Center. She provided details about how the Center will assist those clinics with funding and in other ways. Those interested in being considered to serve on the Advisory Board would need to briefly describe your program, your own experience, and what you think you could bring to the LITC Advisory Board. Also, she described subscriptions Tax Analysts are providing for LITCs. They would need to give the name of the LITC and the email address for the appropriate contact person to receive the subscription. The first email goes to neo and the second goes to info, both at taxpayer-rights.org.
Next, I described items I am working on. I have been writing articles (Procedurally Taxing and the ABA Tax Times). I have also lined up speaking engagements throughout Kansas. I am part of the Collection Due Process Summit Initiative. We have 3 panels for the ABA Fall Tax Meeting in San Francisco in October and are planning the Low Income Taxpayer Representation Workshop in Washington, D.C. in December.
Kansas Legal Services has a Trivia Night fundraiser and I was on the committee that planned the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's Lawyer Well-Being Summit. If you are interested in donating or participating, please contact me by email schmidtw at klsinc.org.
