Description: Pontius Tax Law, PLLC is a proud supporter of U.S. Veterans. The firm’s founder, John Pontius, is a Veteran himself and is committed to honoring the military personnel who have served our country. Attorney Pontius started practicing law in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps with the 1st Armored Division in Germany and was later deployed to Iraq. Attorney Pontius also has experience supervising the IRS-sponsored military Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program in Germany. There he managed eight employees and ensured quality control of over 2,000 federal and 700 state tax returns for members of the military service. Due to Attorney Pontius’ close ties to the military, he has decided to create a scholarship specifically for Veterans or a U.S. veteran’s child. Pontius Tax Law believes Veterans are owed a huge debt for the service they do for our country. We are looking to hear from Veterans, or the children of Veterans on ways that we as a community could better support Veterans. We are also looking to hear how being a Veteran or child of a Veteran has impacted your life and changed your views. The deadline for this $1,000 scholarship is November 30, 2023. If you are a Veteran or a child of a Veteran, please be sure to apply! Thank you to all those who have served and continue to serve our country.
