Clerking for a tax judge.

Does anyone have experience on how firms view a clerkship with the United States Tax Court?

Nothing concrete so far, but based on my friends' experiences as Art. III clerks, I'm being recruited like an Art. III clerk in the major Texas markets. In my (limited) experience, firms that offer partnership credit and bonuses, etc. for Art. III clerks do so for tax court clerks as well.

The thing to remember is that most tax practice groups at major firms operate with much more autonomy than business litigation or corporate. Hiring practices, including coming from clerkships, are more individualized and cannot be generalized from one office to another.
