All the Ways A Lawyer Helps

Annual Tax Training a Big Success

The State Bar of Michigan’s Tax Pro Bono Program (Tax Program), a statewide partnership between the State Bar of Michigan Taxation Section and Access to Justice Committee, held its annual tax training webinar on Wednesday, June 19.

The training was conducted by Professors Nicole Appleberry, Joshua Wease, and Christina Thompson, instructors at the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinics at MSU and U of M Law Schools.  More than 25 pro bono tax attorneys were provided a detailed overview of the most common tax-related issues facing clients of the Tax Program.

The Tax Program and its panel of dedicated pro bono attorneys help low-income taxpayers who earn up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The Tax Program accepts eligible referrals from all legal services providers in Michigan.
