press release dated May 29, 2020 advised that as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present public health risks and challenges, particularly where multiple individuals come together in a courtroom and in response, and until further notice, Court proceedings will be conducted remotely.
See Administrative Order 2020-02 regarding remote proceedings and Administrative Order 2020-03 regarding Limited Entries of Appearance. If you have any questions, contact the Public Affairs Office at (202) 521-3355.
The Court will provide public access to the Court’s remote proceedings via real-time audio with dial-in information for each session posted on the Court’s website.
Administrative Order 2020-02 contains sample orders, such as the new standing Pretrial Order, and notices, such as the new Notice Setting Case for Trial, that incorporate the Court’s new remote proceeding procedures. The sample orders and notices will also be posted on the Court’s website under “Forms.”
According to the new Pretrial Order, litigants may appear for remote proceedings by telephone or by video using Zoomgov, which doesn’t require a personal Zoom account and is available to use free of charge. More information about how to use Zoomgov to appear at a Tax Court proceeding can be found on the Tax Court’s website.
