Yacker Moderating ABA Pro Bono Committee Panel

On May 12, in Washington DC, YH Advisors Partner Brian Yacker will be moderating the following panel discussion at the American Bar Association Tax Conference:

Pro Bono Matters: The Exploding Need for Pro Bono Services for Exempt Organizations. Tax-exempt organizations suffering routine budget cuts and funding shortages are in desperate need of pro bono legal assistance. Indeed, last year 385,000 nonprofits lost their tax-exempt status because they failed to file tax returns for three consecutive years. In her annual report to Congress, Nina Olson, highlighted the lack of notice as well as the onerous and slow reinstatement process making practical suggestions to mitigate these challenges. The New York Attorney General’s Office, through its Charities Bureau, has partnered with the New York Bar Association to form Charity Corps, an attempt to fill this gap so that these nonprofits can continue their excellent good work for our underserved communities. Moderator: Brian Yacker, YH Advisors, Huntington Beach, CA. Panelists: Nina E. Olson, National Taxpayer Advocate, Washington D.C.; Jill McNabb, Attorney Advisor, National Taxpayer Advocate Office, Washington D.C.; Elizabeth J. Kingsley, Harmon, Curran, Spielberg & Eisenberg, Washington D.C., Irina Tarsis, Legal Fellow, Charity Corps, Lincoln Center, Brooklyn, NY.
