Nevada Legal Services Seeks Volunteers for Regular and Small Tax Court Calendar Calls
 

The U.S. Tax Court has approved Nevada Legal Services' request to provide pro bono assistance to low income pro se taxpayers at the Regular and Small Tax Court calendar calls in Las Vegas and Reno. The first calendar call will take place on March 12, 2012 in Las Vegas. Nevada Legal Services needs volunteer pro bono attorneys to answer questions and assist pro se taxpayers with tax controversies. Volunteers should be licensed to practice in Nevada and/or members of the U.S. Tax Court's bar.

 

Upcoming calendar calls are scheduled to take place in Las Vegas in June and Reno in December. More details will follow as those dates approach.

 

Those interested in contributing their time to this valuable effort may contact Heather Anderson-Fintak, pro bono coordinator, at (702) 386-0404, ext. 126, with questions or to volunteer.
