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 to assist in resolving the case and provide procedural advice to pro se petitioners who decide to proceed to trial.
Information for Volunteers & Observers
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.
Individuals thinking of volunteering for the program and volunteers who are new to the program who would like to observe the calendar call session and client counseling are encouraged to attend.
Volunteers should arrive at the court (Rooms 206/208, Jacob K. Javits Federal Building, 26 Federal Plaza) and check in with NYCLA no later than 9:45 AM.
Please allow sufficient time to clear the building’s security screening.
Lunch after the Calendar Call
NYCLA will be hosting a simple lunch immediately following the calendar call session in the Petitioner’s conference room.
NYCLA has extended invitations to Respondent’s counsel and the court to join us.
