IRS Office of Chief Counsel’s first National Virtual Settlement Month successful in resolving almost 150 Tax Court cases (April 26, 2021)

The IRS Office of Chief Counsel has hosted its first National Virtual Settlement Month in March 2021. The results are impressive. The Press Release begins as follows:

Settlement Days events are coordinated efforts to resolve cases in the United States Tax Court by providing taxpayers who are not represented by counsel the opportunity to receive free tax advice from Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs), American Bar Association (ABA) volunteer attorneys and other pro bono organizations.

“The March Settlement Days campaign yielded great results with well over half of participating taxpayers settling their cases on a basis agreeable to them without having to represent themselves in Tax Court,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “These strong results could not be achieved without the dedication and support of our partner groups–the LITCs, ABA and other pro bono organizations.”
