Tax Analysts Recognizes HMB's Marilyn Wethekam As One Of The
Outstanding Women In Tax
"2016 Outstanding Women in Tax"
Tax Analysts, April 25, 2016
Tax Analysts recently decided to
honor outstanding women in tax and asked tax professionals to
nominate women from the public and private sectors who had a
significant impact on tax practice and policy.
After receiving more than 300 nominations, Tax Analysts selected
ten women for the honor. The honorees include a judge, an IRS
official and a congressional committee member. We are pleased
to announce that one of the honorees is also Horwood Marcus &
Berk's very own Marilyn Wethekam. This is a tremendous honor
that is as prestigious as it is well deserved. Here is what Tax
Analysts had to say about Marilyn:
"Marylin Wethekam, a partner with
Horwood Marcus & Berk Ctd. and co-chair of the state firm's
multistate state and local tax practice, has been a pioneer for
women in tax. The first female chair of the Council On State
Taxation, Wethekam cites that opportunity, as well as the
experstise she has achieved in the area of oil and gas taxation, as
her proudest professional achievements.
A 30-year-plus veteran in state and
local tax practice, Wethekam notes that although she was found SALT
"a pretty level playing field" between men and women, she is
grateful for mentors who saw the desirability of promoting women at
a time when there were few female full-time practitioners.
She is highly regarded as a
supporter of honest dealings between taxpayers and tax
administrators and an advocate for fair and independent tax
HMB's SALT group, which Marilyn has
been a member of for more than 20 years, is a full service,
nationwide practice with nine full time SALT attorneys who advise
Fortune 1000 companies, mid-size businesses and individuals on tax
controversies and planning.
