The Taxation Section, as a representative of the legal profession, shall serve its members and the public through education and leadership in efforts to achieve an equitable, efficient, and workable tax system.
Welcome From the Chair
Dear Taxation Section Member,
Welcome to the Taxation Section's interactive website. Through SBM Connect, this site allows Section members to find upcoming events, network with other Section members, share knowledge and resources in the member-only library, and participate in focused discussion groups.
With over 1,250 members, the Taxation Section is a dynamic, active organization offering a wide range of activities and events. Our members include tax practitioners from small, medium and large law firms, accounting firms, corporations, government, and academia. While many of our members are seasoned attorneys who have been active in the Section for many years, we welcome new members and have a strong interest in supporting and exchanging ideas with attorneys in the early stages of their careers.
As you will see from the website, the Taxation Section offers many opportunities to participate, and we welcome and encourage your involvement. The Section includes the following Committees:
- State & Local Tax
- Federal Income Tax
- Estates & Trusts
- Employee Benefits
- Young Tax Lawyers
The Committees are the "engine" of the Taxation Section. You will find a calendar of Committee events within this website. Do not hesitate to contact our Committee chairs for more information regarding these events, other Committee activities, or how you can participate or become involved in any of the Committees.
The Taxation Section also has opportunities to assist with social media, to participate in public policy, and volunteer in our Pro Bono Referral Panel Program. Also, we are continually seeking timely, insightful, and well-written articles for publication in our nationally-recognized journal, the Michigan Tax Lawyer.
If you are interested in joining or increasing your involvement with the Taxation Section, please contact me at Carolee.Smith@cmsenergy.com, or the Program Facilitator of the Section, Mary Owiesny, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing you at future Taxation Section events.
Very truly yours,
Carolee Kvoriak Smith, Chair
Taxation Section of the State Bar of Michigan
