Diana Leyden Leaves UConn To Be NYC Taxpayer Advocate

LeydenFrom the Hartford Courant:

Thumbs up to Diana Leyden, founder and director of the UConn School of Law tax clinic. Since 1999, she has run the free legal service that helps low-income earners with their tax problems. She is leaving for a newly created position, taxpayer advocate for the New York City Finance Department. In Connecticut, she has trained and supervised many law students (as well as volunteer attorneys) to represent clients in audits and at tax court, and she has helped set up free tax-preparation sites around Hartford so families can claim the Earned Income Tax Credit. She even wrote the book on the topic: Advocating for Low Income Taxpayers: A Clinical Studies Casebook.
