12/20/2010

CHARLESTON, W.Va.— West Virginia State Tax Commissioner Craig A. Griffith accepted an appointment to the Federation of Tax Administrators’ Board of Trustees in Washington D.C. earlier this month. The Federation of Tax Administrators (“FTA”) helps improve the quality of state tax administration by providing services, such as research, training, and interstate coordination, to state tax authorities and administrators.

Commissioner Griffith joins seventeen other members of the Board of Trustees as they direct and guide the FTA, which works with each of the fifty states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and New York City. The Board of Trustees members are chosen to represent all regions of the country.

“I am honored to serve on the Board of the FTA on behalf of West Virginia,” Commissioner Griffith said. “The work undertaken by this group impacts citizens, business, and government here at home and across the nation. I look forward to participating in the FTA, which has represented the interests of state taxing authorities since 1937.”

Through the FTA, states can express any concerns, at anytime, regarding proposed federal taxation policy prior to adoption. The FTA was first organized in 1937.
