Please Join Us in Honoring our 2017 Pro Bono Volunteers

CTLP has long recognized that the backbone of our program to protect the rights of Virginia’s low- and moderate-income taxpayers is the strong and continuous support we receive from the tax professionals – attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents – who comprise our Pro Bono Panel. Their generosity enables us to provide assistance to approximately 1,000 taxpayers annually. The following tax professionals, advisers, law student interns, and administrative volunteers who have assisted CTLP clients during the past year are representative of the commitment and generosity shared by all of CTLP’s volunteers.

Outstanding Firms

For any pro bono activity to succeed, the firms which employ tax professionals must have a commitment to the spirit of pro bono. CTLP has been fortunate to have formed partnerships with firms in Virginia and Washington, DC whose commitment to giving back to their communities is particularly noteworthy. For 2017, we extend special thanks to these partner firms:

Advanced Tax Solutions,Winchester, VA
