Three Tuggle Duggins Attorneys Adopt - A - Base
Michael J. Wenig, H. Vaugh Ramsey and Peter O. Evenson participated in the the American Bar Association’s Adopt-A-Base program at Fort Bragg in December of 2017. As part of their commitment to pro bono services, Tuggle Duggins attorneys have supported the Adopt-A-Base program for several years.
The American Bar Association Tax Section recruited law firms and individuals to teach a military VITA program on 10 military installations across the country through the "Adopt-A-Base" program. "Adopt-A-Base" is a program in which the ABA Tax Section partners with the military and the IRS to help train service members become volunteer return preparers through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA). VITA is used by many military installations in that members of the armed forces and their families have access to free tax preparation services. In turn, the military and IRS provides the Section with installations interested in being adopted. The Section then recruits law firms and groups of individuals that commit to adopting a local base on the list.
