LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today appointed Preeti Gadola to the Michigan Tax Tribunal.

The tribunal is an administrative court that hears tax appeals for several categories of Michigan taxes. Most of the tribunal's appeals include property taxes, though it also hears business and individual tax disputes.

"Preeti Gadola's extensive background experience in this particular legal field will be instrumental to the tribunal as it works to resolve tax disputes," Snyder said.

Gadola, of Haslett, serves as a contract hearing referee for the Michigan Tax Tribunal. She presides over hearings on the subjects of real property valuation, principal residence and poverty exemptions from taxation.  Gadola also works as a grader for the Michigan Bar Exam. She previously served as an assistant attorney general in the revenue division, representing the Michigan Department of Treasury and as an associate attorney for Adams, Mott and Staniszewski. Gadola also worked as a hearing referee for the Tax Tribunal from 1992 to 1994. She earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and a law degree from Wayne State University Law School.

Gadola's term will commence Sept. 6 and she will serve the remainder of a four-year term expiring June 30, 2013. She represents attorneys and replaces Patricia Halm. The appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
