Ask the Advocate – Introducing My New Enrolled Agents

Steve Sims, Taxpayers' Rights Advocate.

Last month, I introduced my staff. This month, I would like to share with you the recent accomplishments of two of my staff. I congratulate Brenda Voet and Lila Fedler on their achievement as FTB’s newest Enrolled Agents.

Brenda has more than 28 years of experience with FTB, and she has a Masters Degree in Taxation. Lila has more than 30 years of experience with FTB. In addition, Lila worked in the private sector as a Senior Manager of state and local tax practice.

Also on my staff, l have Susan Maples who is a Certified Public Accountant. You can have confidence in the technical abilities of my staff as they present California tax updates at your various events, and as they assist you with the issues your clients face.
