Experienced. Committed. Engaged.
The Fellows of the American College of Tax Counsel constitute an extraordinary group of America’s very best tax attorneys. Membership is reserved for those leaders who have made an exceptional contribution to their chosen profession. Fellows must be nominated for the honor of membership and must then undergo a rigorous screening process prior to being elected as Fellows of the College.
The College provides a venue for these outstanding lawyers to work together to promote sound tax policy and to engage in thoughtful discussion with the government about matters affecting the tax system. In addition, through its affiliated organizations, the American Tax Policy Institute and the Tannenwald Foundation, the College supports public conferences on tax policy issues and encourages the publication of scholarly articles. The College also sponsors the annual Griswold Lecture on Tax Policy, given each winter at the College’s Annual Meeting.
As part of its mission to improve the tax system, the College provides recommendations to Congress and the Internal Revenue Service for improving the nation’s tax laws and the way that they are interpreted and administered, and it provides input into the judicial system by filing “friend of the court” briefs in selected tax cases.
