DOJ Tax Alumni Reunion 5/10/13 (1/15/13)

The following is the notice of the event that I sent by YahooGroups email yesterday:

To the DOJ Tax Alumni:

This is to give advance notice of a DOJ Tax Division Alumni Reunion in Washington DC on Friday, May 10, 2013.  As in the past, the event  will occur at the same time frame as the ABA Tax Section May Meeting in Washington.  The ABA Tax Section dates are Thursday May 9 - Saturday May 11 (with perhaps some other ABA events on either side of those dates).

The Tax Division has booked the Great Hall for the event as in the past.  Either the Tax Division or the Alumni Committee will get details out later (precise times, costs for alumni and guests, procedure for booking, etc.)  In  the meantime, alumni might want to put the event on their calendars and make appropriate plans to attend the meeting.  In terms of timing, the event is likely to be in the late afternoon (say 3:30pm or 4:00pm) and will likely last a couple of hours, as in the past.

As I hear of details and other items of interest for the meeting, I will post them on the DOJ Tax Alumni blog, here:  http://dojtaxalumni.blogspot.com/.  For the significant items, of course, I will also use the YahooGroups email to circulate the information and there may also be emails directly from the Tax Division.

If you have any questions, for the time being, you can contact me.  I would expect that sometime in the near future as plans firm up, there will be a formal Tax Division liaison for you to ask questions directly.

I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.


If you are a DOJ Tax Alumnus and are not on the DOJ Tax Alumni Directory or on the YahooGroups email list, please email me at jack@tjtaxlaw.com.  You can also sign up directly on the YahooGroups web site below.

Abraham Zapruder Film of President Kennedy Assassination (1/13/13)

Many of the alumni will remember Henry Zapruder who died in 2006.  I came across this article on the famous film footage his father, Abraham, made of President Kennedy's assassination and thought some of the alumni might be interested.
