Advisory Board Recognizes Dedication
At the FTB Advisory Board October meeting, we presented David Doerr, Chief Tax Consultant for the California Taxpayer's Association, with a certificate of appreciation recognizing his 50 years of service to California taxpayers.
Selvi Stanislaus presented Mr. Doerr the award acknowledging his "50 years of tireless service in representing the interests of three generations of California taxpayers." Selvi added, "In fact, Dave has never missed an FTB Advisory Board Meeting or an FTB Board Meeting."
Hired as an intern by the Assembly in 1959, Mr. Doerr eventually became chief consultant to the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee. During his 24 year tenure as chief consultant to this committee, Mr. Doerr significantly contributed to the crafting of California tax policy. Upon his retirement, he began a second career at the California Taxpayer's Association as their chief tax consultant.
The FTB Advisory Board was created as a method for taxpayer representatives to work directly with our management to resolve issues of mutual concern. Representatives include members from the Senate and Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committees, the CSEA, the California Society of CPAs, and other organizations.
