This morning the ABA Section of Taxation kicks off its virtual midyear meeting with plenary addresses by two distinguished speakers, William Gale and Loretta Collins Argrett:

10:30 am– 12 pm ET
Opening Plenary Session (Non-CLE)

Speakers: William G. Gale, Co-director, Tax Policy Center; Loretta Collins Argrett, retired, US Justice Department, Tax Division

Gale will address issues of race and racism in public finance and economics. Argrett will revisit her incredible tax career, and discuss the recently launched Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fellowship, named in her honor.

Loretta Collins Argrett was previously featured in the U.S. Tax Court’s Tax Trailblazers series, which I highly recommend.

The week promises many excellent CLE programs. Keith is speaking at the Court Procedure & Practice session on Wednesday on Boechler v. Commissioner, alongside Bryan Camp, Amy Feinberg, and Kandyce Korotky. Les is speaking at the Individual and Family Taxation session on Friday on math error notices, alongside Aisha Servaty, Rochelle Hodes, and Josh Beck.

Comment Policy: While we all have years of experience as practitioners and attorneys, and while Keith and Les have taught for many years, we think our work is better when we generate input from others. That is one of the reasons we solicit guest posts (and also because of the time it takes to write what we think are high quality posts). Involvement from others makes our site better. That is why we have kept our site open to comments.

If you want to make a public comment, you must identify yourself (using your first and last name) and register by including your email. If you do not, we will remove your comment. In a comment, if you disagree with or intend to criticize someone (such as the poster, another commenter, a party or counsel in a case), you must do so in a respectful manner. We reserve the right to delete comments. If your comment is obnoxious, mean-spirited or violates our sense of decency we will remove the comment. While you have the right to say what you want, you do not have the right to say what you want on our blog.
