Joe Thibodeau Receives Jules Ritholz Award (6/9/13)

Joe Thibodeau, received the Jules Ritholz award, here, at the Civil and Criminal Penalties Section Luncheon on May 10, 2013.  As noted on the web site, "The Jules Ritholz Memorial Merit Award is given in recognition of outstanding dedication, achievement, and integrity in the field of civil and criminal tax controversies."  I attended that luncheon and asked Joe to write up his remarks because, well, I thought they were remarkable.  I have just posted excerpted those remarks on the DOJ Tax Division Alumni Blog, here, but do recommend that readers read the complete remarks here.

In his remarks, Joe gives a lot of credit to those who have influenced his career and character.  They include, of course, Jules Ritholz and the late Jerry Feffer, both major players in the tax crimes arena.  Thanks, Joe, for reminding us and others about the best our profession has to offer.
