Five Jobs Friday: The Time I Worked As a Tax Attorney

Five Jobs Friday: The Time I Worked As a Tax Attorney

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, our city is forced to critically reevaluate our budget and make difficult decisions to balance the budget. My experience as a tax attorney representing the DC Office of Tax and Revenue and helping to review the city’s budget will help me make critical decisions to lead Ward 2 through the economic consequences of COVID-19. 

I have worked at Andersen Tax where I advised private clients on their tax portfolios; I have clerked on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims where I focused primarily on tax cases; I represented the Office of Tax and Revenue and specialized in real property tax matters; and, I have worked with the Council and District agencies on the annual budget. 

It is more critical than ever for Ward 2 to have a strong Councilmember with experience with our budget, tax, and finance to help us recover from this crisis. I am confident that we can deal with the long term financial consequences of this pandemic, but only with courageous leadership. I am committed to focusing on economic recovery for our city to ensure that this crisis does not lead to a decades-long financial disaster. Caring for our most vulnerable residents and looking out for the long term financial health of our city does not have to be mutually exclusive. 

Be well,
Brooke Pinto
