The Immigration Law Clinic at St. Vincent Catholic Charities is happy to announce that we will be offering the webinar "Immigrants & Tax Law: An Introduction." The webinar will focus on the importance of accurate tax returns, specifically in the context of immigration, and will help practitioners identify the most common errors among lower-income individuals. We will review eligibility requirements for the different filing statuses, dependency exemptions and popular credits.

Your presenter will be Rebecca Lair, one of the attorneys with the Immigration Law Clinic. A Kalamazoo College graduate, Rebecca received her J.D. from New England Law|Boston in 2006, and her L.L.M. in Taxation from Northwestern University in 2007. After graduating from her L.L.M. program, she worked at a mid-sized accounting firm in Chicago, specializing in individual income taxation of expatriate taxpayers and non-resident aliens, as well as the reporting of foreign bank and investment accounts. Rebecca has studied Spanish in Spain and Human Rights Law in Ireland.

Thanks in part to a grant from the Ingham County Bar Foundation, there is no cost to attend this webinar, but registration is required. The deadline for registering is November 9, 2012. Please visit for more information. The webinar is open to all interested parties including, but not limited to, attorneys, BIA Accredited Representatives, and tax preparers. Once an individual has registered, s/he will receive a confirmation email. Information for connecting to the webinar will be emailed 2 weeks in advance of the presentation, and again the week of the presentation. Please feel free to pass along this valuable opportunity to others.
