ENCINO, CA – November 25, 2015 – Tax Defense Partners, Inc., a full-service tax debt resolution company, announces today that they have a newly established Fellowship with California State University, Northridge (CSUN), in effort to expand CSUN’s Bookstein Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic Research.

The new partnership will help the Bookstein Institute recruit up to five undergraduate accounting students to serve as Tax Defense Fellows. These students will also receive valuable mentorship from tax professionals at Tax Defense Partners, participate in the calendar hearing of the U.S. Tax Court held in Downtown Los Angeles, and attend social events as part of their mentorship. Tax Defense Partners professionals will also contribute in the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics’ annual Professor for a Day event, and host up to 40 CSUN students annually in a two-day comprehensive training on federal tax procedure.

“Tax Defense Partners has grown into one of the preeminent firms in the tax controversy field, and a key factor has been our staff.” said Brian Compton, co-founder and CEO of Tax Defense Partners, “A significant number of our staff are CSUN alumni. It has become clear to us what an outstanding job CSUN is doing in preparing and developing accounting and tax professionals. As we learned more about the Bookstein Clinic it became evident that there is a significant and growing need in our community for these services. And we realized that a meaningful collaboration with CSUN could truly help to make a difference.”
