Speaking at the MaSEA Annual Meeting on June 10th is Nina Olson, yes you read that correctly. Nina Olson, the taxpayer team leader for about 20 years as US Taxpayer Advocate, author of The Taxpayer Rights, promoter of the Taxpayer First Act, an annual fixture before Congress to critique the IRS, and a former tax preparer. Her last almost 1,000 page Congressional report, (the Purple Book), contained several dozens of recommendations to strengthen Taxpayer Rights and Improve Tax Administration. EA’s Sharon Kay Flynn and Nancy Goedecke will moderate a panel discussion. Nancy first shared the stage with Nina in 1998 as a NAEA representative at an IRS Conference in Atlanta. Sharon has worked directly with Nina for decades.
This discussion and presentation is priceless. That’s right; there is no fee. Those attending Annual Meeting are automatically registered. Those who want access just to the Nina Olson portion of the program agree to accept one low income tax clinic case as part of the New England EA LITC Pro Bono group. MaSEA has organized fifty enrolled agents to assist low income tax clinics in ME, NH, VT, RI and MA.
