A case study: volunteering can further your career: Roni Robinson receives Halliburton MVP award for TEI E-filing activities.
Roni Robinson, Tax Specialist with Halliburton Company in Houston, recently received Halliburton's MVP award for her activities with the TEI-IRS Forms and Attachments Task Group. For the past year, Ms. Robinson has worked with the task group to make the agency's Modernized E-file project for large corporations more administrable.
TEI President Michael P. Boyle called Ms. Robinson's award well deserved. "We are pleased that Halliburton has recognized that Roni's work to make e-filing more administrable also benefits the company. She brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the task group. These abilities are one reason TEI recently nominated Roni to serve on the IRS's Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee."
Mr. Boyle added that all the TEI members who served on the task group deserve recognition for their efforts. "This group has made several trips to Washington to work with the IRS, held numerous conference calls, and made valuable contributions to the administration of this mandate. The members have reviewed every form filed by a large corporation to determine whether it must be filed in XML format, a PDF file, or on paper." The TEI members also worked with the IRS to ensure that sufficient time is provided to correct errors in e-filed returns and to ensure that the returns submitted electronically to the IRS will be compatible with and accepted by the IRS's systems.
"TEI may have had misgivings about the IRS's rapid implementation of the e-filing mandate," he concluded, "but we are fortunate to have dedicated members such as Roni involved to smooth out the significant bumps in the road."
The other members of the joint task group are R. Don Blaicher and Earl H. Efraimson of ExxonMobil Corporation; Frederick R. Holt of American Financial Group, Inc.; and William J. Marx of General Motors Corporation; with TEI staff support being provided by Eli J. Dicker, Mary Lou Fahey, and Jeffery P. Rasmussen.
