Taxation Section Pro Bono Committee

hands raised to volunteerThe WSBA Taxation Section members utilize their talents to play an instrumental role in assisting low-income taxpayers within our communities. The Federal Tax Clinic provides effective tax assistance to low-income residents of Washington state in tax disputes with the IRS. Our services are the coordinated effort of the Washington State Bar Association, the Federal Tax Clinics at the University of Washington and Gonzaga University, and volunteer tax attorneys. We also assist the WSBA in other pro bono endeavors, including the Home Foreclosure Program.



The Pro Bono Committee of the Taxation Section of the WSBA is currently looking for volunteer attorneys who are interested in preparing some individual income tax returns for clients of the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic's of the UW School of Law. The return preparation will not be done onsite at the clinic, so the volunteers can prepare the returns within their personal schedules. Volunteers should have taken at least one basic income tax class and have some tax prep experience outside of preparing the individual's own tax return. There is a free 2-hour orientation session, for which volunteers will receive 2 CLE credits.  Additionally, each volunteer can apply for up to 4 additional CLE credits for the tax return preparation work completed. This is a total of 6 free CLE credits each year. If you are interested, please contact Tiffany Gorton at, or Vijay Gosalia at
