The Tax Section has a partnership with the Armed Forces and the IRS to provide training to military VITA volunteers on bases across the country. The military VITA volunteers are service members who prepare returns for other service members and their families.

As part of the Section’s commitment to pro bono services for our service members, the Section works to recruit law firms or groups of individuals to adopt a local base to provide this important tax training (3-5 days in December or January, depending on the base). Click here for more information on this challenging and rewarding Pro Bono Opportunity.

ABA Military Pro Bono Project

The Section encourages all Section members to join the ABA Military Pro Bono Project. This program offers two different pro bono opportunities.

First, Section members can register to be contacted by the ABA Military Pro Bono Project with opportunities to provide pro bono assistance to military families directly when cases arise.

Second, Section members can register to join Operation Stand-By to volunteer time to provide advice to military attorneys on issues relating to your specific expertise.
