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 tribunals." 

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.
