Janette Lohman elected second vice president of the Institute of Professionals in Taxation

August 10, 2017

St. Louis partner Janette M. Lohman was elected to the four-year officer rotation for the Institute of Professionals in Taxation (“IPT”) at its 41st Annual Meeting held in Charlotte, North Carolina. Janette will serve as Second Vice President for the 2017/2018 fiscal year, and then as First Vice President, President, and Immediate Past President in the three successive fiscal years.

The IPT was founded in 1976 as a § 501(c)(3) non-profit educational association that currently serves over 4,100 members representing approximately 1,450 corporations, including most Fortune 500 companies, major law firms, Big Four accounting firms, and other SALT consulting firms throughout the United States and Canada.

The IPT is the only state and local tax (“SALT”) professional organization that educates, certifies and establishes strict codes of conduct for state and local income, property and sales & use tax professionals who represent taxpayers. Janette joined the IPT shortly after she left her former position as Missouri’s Director of Revenue (government agencies, professionals who represent government taxing authorities, and government officials do not qualify for membership). 

The IPT sponsors three professional designation programs in the major SALT areas that lead to the Certified Member of the Institute (“CMI”) designation. More recently, the IPT now sponsors the multidisciplinary Credits and Incentives Professional (“CCIP”) designation. Janette holds both IPT designations, a CMI (Sales and Use Tax) and a CCIP. 

Over the past 20 years, Janette has served on the IPT’s Board of Governors and chaired and co-chaired other IPT programs and committees. In 2005-06, Janette served on the formation committee for the IPT’s CMI Income Tax Program, and later served as its overall Chair for almost a decade. From 2014-16, Janette served on the CCIP formation committee and currently serves on the CCIP examination committee. She has also  prepared and given over 75 CLE/CPE-qualified presentations at the IPT’s national conferences in all four substantive SALT areas and professional ethics. In 2008, Janette was presented with the IPT’s Distinguished Service Award.
