Our condolences to the family and friends of Tax Court Judge Howard Dawson, who passed away on July 15th. Judge Dawson devoted a substantial portion of his career and life to the administration of the tax system, and was the longest serving Tax Court Judge. Judge Dawson was appointed in 1962 by JFK, and was amazingly still hearing and deciding cases this year.
