Tax Talks

Representing Taxpayers in the Georgia Tax Tribunal

The Taxation Practice attorneys of Taylor English Duma LLP invite you to join us  for a conversation with the expert. This program is the first seminar in a series hosted for tax attorneys and accountants to address timely topics and promote discussion.

In 2012, Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 100 into law to create a new Chapter 13A under Title 50 of the Official Code of Georgia creating Georgia's independent Tax Tribunal. The Tax Tribunal hears cases seeking review of actions of the Department of Revenue. By law, only experienced tax attorneys can be appointed as a Tax Tribunal Judge in Georgia, however, both attorneys and accountants can appear before the Tax Tribunal. In this session, Judge Beaudrot will discuss the workings of the Tax Tribunal and the roles of attorneys and accountants appearing before the tribunal.

Featured Speaker

Hon. Charles R. Beaudrot Jr.

He was previously a senior partner in the Tax Practice at Morris, Manning  & Martin, LLP and a frequent speaker on tax, partnership and  corporate topics for numerous sponsors such as the Georgia  Society of  Certified Public Accountants, the Institute for Continuing Legal Education in Georgia and the Georgia Real Estate Tax Conference.
