Thank you, Pat: Longtime tax site staff member retires

Pat Sauer officially retired from White Earth Investment Initiative (WEII) on Friday, Aug. 14, after eight years of free tax preparation service for community residents.

Pat joined the White Earth Community Tax Service as its second administrator. An accountant, Pat was frequently trained and certified to the highest level under the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance standards. He was instrumental in recruiting new community volunteers, and in training and supporting new tax site administrators to take over the program as he prepared for retirement.

We will miss his smiling face and sense of humor! He is more than just a good accountant – he is dedicated to helping people. — CEO Julia Nelmark

Sue Trnka joined the tax site staff in 2019 and serves as its current administrator.
