Craig Bell Recognized by Bank of America Charitable Foundation

November 24, 2008

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation recently recognized Craig D. Bell, a partner in the Tax Department, as a “person making a difference.” Recognized as a “local hero,” Bell was awarded a $5,000 donation from the Foundation for him to direct to the non-profit of his choosing—The Community Tax Law Project (CTLP). CTLP is a 501 (c)(3) Virginia corporation founded in 1992 on the belief that a taxpayer’s access to professional representation in tax disputes should not depend solely on his or her ability to pay for such services. CTLP’s primary mission is to provide low-income Virginia taxpayers with pro bono representation in federal and state tax disputes and to educate low-income individuals about their rights and responsibilities as U.S. taxpayers.
