On September 25, 2008, the Pro Bono Low-Income Taxpayer Project (LITP) welcomed back Attorney Mary Gillum of the Tennessee Taxpayer Project for a seminar covering two timely federal tax topics: the tax consequences of cancellation of debt income and collection due process hearings. Volunteers were treated to Attorney Gillumís high-energy and information-packed presentation while also having ample opportunity to ask questions and share personal experiences with these issues.
Given the trying economic times that our volunteer attorneys and their clients are facing, Attorney Gillumís thoughtful insights and practical advice will surely be an on-going resource to the volunteers and their clients.
The Project is currently in its sixth year of operation and over the years has assisted many low-income taxpayers by linking them with tax professionals to help assist with the resolution of their federal tax controversies. The need for help is great and Pro Bono is always looking for more volunteers who can assist those in need. In addition to attorneys, accountants and enrolled agents may also volunteer with the Project. To all the volunteers who have answered the call for help, Pro Bono thanks you and please know how very much your support of the LITP is appreciated.
Please consider becoming a part of the Projectís efforts by using your skills and expertise to make a difference in the lives of those in need of your help. If you or someone you know would like more information about how the Project works or the volunteer opportunities available, please contact Joceline Champagne, Project Coordinator, at 603-228-6028.
