Office of Chief Counsel
Join the Section
Welcome to the website for the Federal Bar Association Section on Taxation. We’re here for you and it’s time to get involved.
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 the private sector.
Our members practice in all areas of federal taxation and include attorneys from IRS, Department of Justice, Congress, Treasury, the judiciary, the private sector, law students, and law clerks. The Section is led by a diverse team of officers who volunteer their time and expertise to further our mission and add value to our members and the profession. Some examples of our programs include Women In Tax Law, Tax Practice & Procedure Committee, Young Tax Lawyers Group, the Donald C. Alexander Tax Law Writing Competition, and our publication Inside Basis as well as contributions to The Federal Lawyer. The Section also hosts annual Tax Law and Insurance Tax conferences, and a biennial tax policy conference. 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 administration and functioning of our tax system.
The Section provides all of its members with opportunities to become active and to take on leadership roles in Section events and activities. If interested, please visit our Officers page and contact a member of our leadership team. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our next event.
