O'Donnabhain Tax Trial Resumes Thursday

The potentially precedent-setting trial, O’Donnabhain v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, resumes this Thursday, August 23, in Boston.

Rhiannon O'Donnabhain, represented by GLAD, is challenging the IRS over their refusal to allow her a tax deduction for sex reassignment surgery related to her treatment for Gender Identity Disorder.

The trial began on July 23 and recessed on July 27. On Thursday, the IRS will present their final expert witness, and both sides will make closing statements.

Check back here later this week for a post-trial wrap-up.
