Suzi Hogan Receives TTARA’s 2022 Del Threadgill Award
Suzi Hogan, sales and property tax manager for Oncor Electric Delivery Company, was honored with the Del Threadgill Distinguished Tax Professional Award by the Texas Taxpayers and Research Association (TTARA) at its recent 2022 Annual Meeting.
Presented annually since 2011, the Threadgill Award recognizes the achievements of an employee whose work directly impacts his or her company’s tax liability. The award honors the late Delmer Ray Threadgill, former chairman of TTARA and vice president and director of tax services at J.C. Penney Company.
“Suzi Hogan’s dedication over the years to her profession and to her employers truly exemplifies the spirit of the Del Threadgill Distinguished Tax Professional Award,” said TTARA President Dale Craymer. “While Suzi has excelled in providing property and sales tax guidance, she also has given of her time and talents to help others and better her community and state outside of her job.”
Hogan started her career with Texas Utilities (previously TU Electric, TXU, Energy Future Holdings) in 1986 and served in numerous sales and property tax positions prior to her promotion to tax director – non-income taxes. She was a registered lobbyist for many years and analyzed and coordinated all the tax legislation for the generation, transmission/distribution and retail arms of the company. Negotiating and settling taxes for the company’s largest properties, she also resolved numerous sales tax audits successfully for the EFH system companies. After 30 years, Hogan retired, but then Oncor asked her to handle their state and local taxes for a few months – that was more than six years ago.
Hogan is also making an impact outside of her professional role. She received a Volunteer of the Month award from former Texas Gov. Mark White for her work to educate others on the use of the newly enacted child passenger safety seat law – a cause near and dear to her heart – and to raise money for those who could not afford one. She also has served on panels of the Dallas United Way and on the Board of Directors for the Dallas Camp Fire Girls.
Hogan has been honored by the military with one of its only civilian awards, the Molly Pitcher Award for her work with the 2/14 Marine Corps, a volunteer job for which she insists she received more from than she was able to give.
A third-generation graduate of Stephen F. Austin in 1986, Hogan majored in accounting and minored in computer science.
