To practice before the Tax Court as a nonattorney, you must pass a rigorous 4 hour written admission examination given biennially, which was last offered remotely on 11/8/23. Learn more about the exam process by reading the Tax Notes article A Peek Behind the Curtain at the Tax Court Exam for Non-Attorneys. Also read Sherrill's guest blog post on Procedurally Taxing about the first ever remote Exam in 2021. Both are available on our website in the Forms, Articles & Links area and also see Procedures for the Preparation and Grading of the Nonattorney Examination at https://ustaxcourt.gov/NonAttorney_Exam_Procedures.pdf.
