The Levin Center for Oversight and Democracy at Wayne State University Law School and Georgetown Law Center for Congressional Studies are partnering to present a live panel in Washington, D.C. on January 30, on how the innovative approaches used by the January 6th Select Committee will affect congressional oversight in the future. Panelists with first-hand knowledge will discuss the committee’s methods, such as using video footage of events and depositions, why they were so effective in relaying the facts of the investigation to the American public, and the influence they will have on future oversight investigations and hearings.

Panelists are:

•Kristin Amerling, Deputy Staff Director and Chief Counsel of the January 6th Committee

•Reginald Brown, Kirkland & Ellis partner who represented witnesses before the January6th Committee

•Lisa Desjardins, PBS NewsHour correspondent who covered the January 6th Committeehearings

•Professor David Rapallo, Georgetown University Law Center, and former longtimecongressional investigator

The panel will be hosted by Jim Townsend, Director of the Levin Center for Oversight and Democracy, and Victoria Nourse, Ralph V. Whitworth Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center.

Treasury: Individual income tax season begins January 23

Michigan taxpayers can begin to file state individual income tax returns on January 23, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury.

Individuals can file their state income tax return online, with a tax professional or by mailing in paper forms and documentation. All state of Michigan income tax returns and payment of any taxes owed must be received by April 18, 2023.

All employers are required to mail previous year wage statements — W-2s and 1099s — to their employees by January 31. End-of-the-year pay stubs should not be used when filing a state income tax return because they are typically not an accurate reflection of all income received.

City of Detroit individual income tax return filing begins on January 23 and ends on April 18, 2023.
