While at the IRS, Tom was a charter member of the committee that developed the Voluntary Compliance Resolution Program and now serves as Deloitte’s primary point of contact for submissions made to the IRS under the current qualified plan correction programs.

Tom is the chair of the Administrative Practices subcommittee of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Employee Benefits committee, a member of the Employee Benefits Technical Resource panel of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), and is active in the IRS Tax Exempt/Government Entities Joint Council for the Mid-Atlantic Region. He is also a frequent speaker at ABA and AICPA conferences on employee benefits and the co-author of Bloomberg BNA Tax Management Portfolio, “Deferred Compensation Arrangements, No. 385."
