We’d like to offer a HUGE congratulations to Spar Bernstein Attorney Carmela Walrond who was recently appointed to the prestigious IRS Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP). After a lengthy and extremely competitive application process, several interviews, and a thorough review of her law career, she was selected for the Internal Revenue Service’s TAP program. The panel is made up of just 75 tax professionals “who listen to taxpayers and identify taxpayers’ issues”. Carmela will participate on the panel for 3 years, and give valuable feedback directly to the IRS based on the obstacles her clients face. For example, one of her clients received letters from the IRS threatening a lien against their house weeks after the case had been settled. Another client was continuously harassed by collection agencies even though Carmela was already on the case, and working out a deal with the IRS. She’s eager to make recommendations that would ensure her clients are treated fairly when disputing their tax debt, increase transparency within the IRS, and streamline communication between departments.
At Spar Bernstein, we are dedicated to fighting for our clients’ rights, and Carmela’s appointment to a top Federal Advisory Committee is the perfect example of our firm’s dedication to go above and beyond to ensure your voice is heard!
