Rosenberg Martin Greenberg’s Tax Controversy Group has served the Fort Meade community during the past 4 tax return filing seasons as part of the U.S. Military’s VITA Program. The VITA program is a partnership between the Internal Revenue Service’s SPEC (Stakeholders Partnerships Education and Communication), the American Bar Association, and the U.S. Military, and provides free, quality income tax return preparation for military service men and women and their families. As sponsors, RMG Attorneys and Staff are trained and certified to prepare basic, intermediate, advanced and military income tax returns under the VITA guidelines. They then serve as instructors for a week each January to the military personnel who prepare returns for military members and their families. RMG is truly honored to be a part of the VITA program, which gives them an opportunity to say “thank you” to the men and women who serve and protect our country.
