Taxation Section

The Taxation Section provides current information on federal and state tax issues that directly affect practitioners in Washington. It gives new attorneys with an interest in tax law an opportunity to meet and discuss mutual areas of concern with established practitioners. The section assists in proposing and commenting on legislation and administrative rules affecting federal and state tax practice.

Through its website, list serve, and events throughout the year, the Taxation Section provides practical up-to-date information regarding the sections committees, activities, and other tax resources.

In accordance with the section's bylaws, and with the exception of law students, an individual must be an active member of the bar to join the Taxation Section.
