Professional Experience

July, 1962 through November, 1998 - Employee of the Federal Government Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service

Held a series of positions with progressively increasing responsibilities culminating in July 1987 with that of Appeals Officer. From January 1982 until February, 1987 held the position of Manager of Office Audit Group of the Examination Division in the Internal Revenue Service. Daily, l supervised fifteen tax auditors and varying clerical staff. My responsibilities were to assign, review and evaluate work of my subordinate staff and to elicit regular group reports which were sent to other divisions for statistical and evaluation purposes. When needed, l held conferences to mediate complex tax issues considered to difficult for my staff. As a result of my outstanding performance I was given a Superior Managerial Cash Award by the Chief of my Division. Due to my superior skills as Manager of the Office Audit Group I was promoted to Appeals Officer in July 1987. I was responsible for settling complex, tax shelter cases that were considered uncollectible by my predecessors. In this capacity I met with taxpayers, attorneys, Certified Public Accountants, enrolled agents and other taxpayer representatives. I have represented the Internal Revenue in Tax-Court Cases, have acted as a mediator between the Government and taxpayers in small and regular tax court cases, consulted daily with Government Trial Attorneys and have, as a result, been responsible for collecting millions of dollars on the Government's behalf. I handled as many as 150 cases quarterly from 1987 through 1998. These cases involved in depth computational analysis and required well honed negotiating skills.

To help facilitate my growth and upward mobility at the Internal Revenue' Service I took many hours of complex management and accounting courses at various universities in the area including in excess of twenty-four hours of accounting qualifying me as a Government Accountant. l also attended and received certificates from courses offered through continuing education at the Internal Revenue Service.

Retired successfully after thirty-six years of service in November, 1998.
