Article in Texas Lawyer discusses the election of Larry Campagna as president of the American College of Tax Counsel
A Texas Lawyer article discusses the election of Larry Campagna, the managing shareholder for Chamberlain Hrdlicka, as the 2023-24 president of the American College of Tax Counsel and his goal for the presidency - to create a visitation program at many of the nation’s law schools, in order to introduce law students to the broad variety of law careers available in taxation. Campagna proposed this initiative to the college because he foresees a coming surge of tax controversy work and a potential lack of qualified tax lawyers to represent the IRS and taxpayer.
“The IRS is about to receive $80 billion dollars over the next 10 years for modernization and increased enforcement,” said Campagna. “If we don’t encourage more young lawyers to consider tax as a career, there simply will not be enough talented professionals to handle all the cases that the IRS wants to investigate and that taxpayers need to defend. Students need to understand that tax is not all mathematics and accounting. It’s also mergers and acquisitions; it’s complicated trial and appellate work on important issues that affect millions of taxpayers; and it’s defending low income taxpayers who are targeted by the government. It’s a noble profession.”
