NYCLA - U.S. Tax Court Calendar Call Pro Bono Program.
The U.S. Tax Court Calendar Call Pro Bono Program provides counseling to self represented taxpayers seeking advice in the area of tax law at calendar call sessions of the U.S. Tax Court conducted in New York. Self represented taxpayers are advised by volunteers while appearing pro se before the U.S. Tax Court. Volunteers may be asked to consult with pro se petitioners regarding the merits of their cases and evaluate any settlement proposals from the Internal Revenue Service, act as a communicator or mediator between the parties in an effort to assist in resolving the case and provide procedural advice to pro se petitioners who decide to proceed to trial.
1. Steve Lessard will be sending emails to the NYCLA volunteers when we know the needs for each calendar. However, PLEASE feel free to attend the calendar, observe and give moral support.
2. NYCLA will be inviting the Court & IRS Counsel to attend lunch after the calendar. The lunches are a great place to discuss current events and trends with the IRS attorneys, the Court and the other volunteers.
