Federal Tax Externship - 2014 Spring

There are still two openings in the 2014 spring Tax Externship program. 

Externs work in the local office of the IRS under the direct supervision of IRS attorneys and Professor Blackburn.  Your externship experience will include research and writing memos, opinion letters, motions and other documents to be filed with the U.S. Tax Court. 

Externs attend meetings with taxpayers, with IRS audit agents, and with legal counsel and CPAs representing taxpayers. The U. S. Tax Court has a trial docket in Louisville during the spring semester;  all externs will attend some of the trials and some externs may represent the government against pro se taxpayers. 

If you are interested, please contact Professor Blackburn at tblackburn@louisville.edu or 502-852-6384.
