American Bar Association Section of Taxation Announces Tax Analysts Public Service Fellow

January 10, 2023

Tax Analysts, along with the American Bar Association Section of Taxation, is proud to announce that Beth Hodess is the recipient of the Tax Analysts Public Service Fellowship. This new two-year fellowship offers practicing tax attorneys the opportunity to work in public interest tax law with a public interest nonprofit organization or government entity (the sponsoring organization). For the inaugural year of this fellowship, the sponsoring organization will be La Posada Tax Clinic in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Previously, Hodess founded OnPoint Legal Counsel and worked as a tax attorney and mediator. Her practice focused on the intersection of tax controversy and tax policy. Hodess joined La Posada Tax Clinic on December 1, 2022. She will use her extensive experience advising nonprofit organizations to help La Posada with a leadership transition and sustainability plan.

“We are thrilled to have Beth serve as the inaugural Tax Analysts Public Service Fellow. Everything we do at Tax Analysts is viewed through the lens of our mission to educate taxpayers, policymakers, and tax practitioners, to foster a debate on tax policy, and to increase transparency in tax policy,” said President and CEO Cara Griffith. “Beth’s reputation for counseling and representing clients with passion, courage, and tenacity and her previous experience with low-income taxpayer clinic programs will be a significant benefit as La Posada continues to serve its clients while planning for its future.”

“The ABA Tax Section is excited that Beth accepted this unique fellowship. It is designed to attract more experienced attorneys to a career in tax-related public service,” said C. Wells Hall III, Chair of the Tax Section. “The complexity of the tax laws, increased use of the tax system to deliver social services, and underfunded and overwhelmed taxing authorities make representation of vulnerable taxpayers more important than ever. Beth’s role will contribute to equal access to tax justice in diverse geographic regions, particularly rural areas where such assistance may be needed most.”
