Richard Litwin of Litwin Law in Atlanta was elected to the American College of Tax Counsel by the College’s Board of Regents at its Jan. 28 meeting.
The Fellows of the American College of Tax Counsel constitute an extraordinary group of America’s very best tax attorneys. Membership is an honor reserved for those leaders who have made an exceptional contribution to their chosen profession.
The College’s members, called “Fellows,” are tax lawyers working in private law firms and in-house legal departments, teaching tax in law schools, or working in federal or state revenue agencies. They are recognized for their extraordinary accomplishments and professional achievements and for their dedication to improving the practice of tax law.
Fellows must be nominated by their peers for this honor and must satisfy the established criteria and pass a rigorous screening process before becoming a Fellow.
“I am honored and humbled to have been selected for membership in the College,” Litwin said of the appointment.
The College makes an impact on tax law by communicating with Congress, the Treasury Department and the IRS on federal tax issues and through the filing of “friend of the court” briefs in selected tax cases. The College can be found online at http://www.actconline.org.
Litwin was recently named to the 2022 list of Top 100 Georgia Super Lawyers, which features attorneys across the state of Georgia — in 70 different practice areas — with the highest rankings after a rigorous multiphase selection process.
He has been named a Super Lawyer every year since 2008, and this is his fourth time on the Top 100 list, including 2021.
Litwin speaks frequently on state and local tax issues and has published in the Georgia Bar Journal and other national publications and law journals. He serves on or has served on several task forces specific to state taxation, including the Georgia Department of Revenue Attorney Liaison Committee, Georgia Department of Revenue Special Task Force on Consolidated Income Tax Return Regulations, and State Bar of Georgia Tax Section’s Georgia Tax Tribunal Task Force.
