Matt Boch entered Harvard Law School thinking he would be an environmental attorney, but after taking a tax class, he changed his mind and decided to pursue tax law. It turned out to be the right move.
After he graduated in 2007, Boch went to work for the international law firm McDermott Will & Emery in its Chicago office.
In 2015, Boch moved to Arkansas and joined Dover Dixon Horne, where his practice focuses on tax and economic development work.
Boch provides pro bono work for the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce on tax policies that help attract businesses and jobs to the state. “That’s deeply meaningful to me,” said Boch, who grew up in Indianapolis. “State and local tax is an area where I’m usually fighting for the good guy and making the tax system fairer and simpler.”
This year, he spearheaded legislation that created an independent Arkansas Tax Appeals Commission to resolve taxpayer disputes.
Boch, who received his undergraduate degree from Harvard, is a member and former chair of the Arkansas Tax Advisory Council and the Arkansas Bar Association Section of Taxation.
