Message from the Chair
IRS’s Office of Chief Counsel
Join the Section
Welcome to the website for the Federal Bar Association Section on Taxation. Our mission is to promote the welfare, interests, education, and professional growth and development of members of the Section; to contribute to the formation of federal tax policy through Section events; to promote high standards of professional competence and ethical conduct in the practice of federal tax law; and to provide opportunities for interaction between tax practitioners in public service and in the private sector.
Our members practice in all areas of federal taxation and include attorneys from the IRS, Department of Justice, Congress, Treasury, the judiciary, and the private sector. The Section is led by a diverse team of officers who volunteer their time and expertise to further the Section’s mission and add value to its members and the legal profession. Some examples of our programs include the Women in Tax Law Group, the Young Tax Lawyers Group, the Donald C. Alexander Tax Law Writing Competition, the Tax Practice & Procedure Roundtable Group, the Community Outreach Committee, and our publication Inside Basis. The Section also hosts an annual Tax Law Conference and an Insurance Tax Law Conference that include the best practitioners from both the public and private sectors. Each year, the Section presents the Kenneth H. Liles Award to an individual practitioner whose career has exemplified the highest standards of tax practice and has made significant contributions to federal tax policy and the functioning of our tax system. Additional information about these programs is available at the links to the left.
The Section provides all of its members with opportunities to be active and take on leadership roles in Section events and activities. If you are interested in becoming more involved in the Section on Taxation, then please contact
