TCPI honours Thomas Barthold with award

Thomas Barthold

Thomas Barthold, chief of staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), has been recognised by the Tax Council Policy Institute (TCPI) for his accomplishments in business and tax policy with the Pillar of Excellence Award.

Barthold will receive the award during the TCPI’s 17th annual tax policy and practice symposium on February 11 and 12 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington.

He will be the seventh recipient of this award, which honours individuals in the tax community who consistently go above and beyond what is required of them to fulfill their professional obligations.

To receive the Pillar of Excellence Award individuals must have played a key role in developing US tax policy, recognising its impacts on business and the economy, and improving the overall understanding of foreign and domestic tax policies among tax professionals, executives and policymakers.

Barthold became chief of staff at the JCT in May 2009, having started his career as a staff economist in 1987 and serving as a senior economist, deputy chief of staff and acting chief of staff. He has experience of working on a wide variety of issues for the Committee, including capital gains taxation, savings incentives, environmental and energy taxes, estates and gift taxation, the taxation of multinational enterprises, tax-exempt bonds and organisations, among others.

The JCT is a non-partisan committee of the US Congress. It has a group of experienced professional representatives that assist members of parliament in both houses of congress on tax litigation. 

"With an impressive career in public policy and a track record of thoughtful leadership in the development of tax policy for almost 30 years, working for and garnering the respect of both parties, Tom exemplifies the criteria of the Pillar Award," said Doug Bates, chairman of TCPI's board of directors and vice president of federal relations at Northwestern Mutual.
