Topping the list is Michael Mazerov, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities who, Brunori says, “has been instrumental in the resurgence of the fight to adopt combined reporting and to make other necessary changes in the corporate income tax,” who “has kept the debate over sales taxation of services alive,” and who “has been a major force behind the raising of personal income taxes.”
Brunori’s other picks for his all-decade team include William F. Fox, Director and Professor of Economics at the University of Tennessee’s Center for Business and Economic Research; Art Rosen, partner with McDermott, Will and Emery; Kendall Houghton, partner with Baker & McKenzie; Douglas L. Lindholm, President and Executive Director of the Council on State Taxation; June Summers Haas, partner with Honigman, Miller, Schwartz and Cohn LLP; Billy Hamilton, author of the State Tax Notes column State Tax Merry-Go-Round; and Walter Hellerstein, the University of Georgia’s Francis Shackelford Distinguished Professor in Taxation Law.
Rounding out Brunori’s list are Nicholas Johnson, Director of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ State Fiscal Project (and Mazerov’s colleague there); Joan Youngman, Senior Fellow at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy; Richard D. Pomp, the University of Connecticut’s Alva P. Loiselle Professor of Law; Paul H. Frankel, partner with Morrison & Foerster LLP; Robert Cline, Ernst & Young’s National Director of State and Local Tax Policy Economics; Harley Duncan, Managing Director of Washington National Tax at KPMG LLLP; and John A. Swain, Associate Professor with the University of Arizona’s James E. Rogers College of Law.
