Polsky Named 2007-08 Professor in Residence

The IRS announced today (IR-2007-111) that Chief Counsel Donald L. Korb has named Gregg D. Polsky the 2007-08 Professor in Residence, succeeding Calvin Johnson (whose term ended May 31):

Polsky is a nationally known scholar who recently joined the faculty at Florida State as the Sheila M. McDevitt Professor of Law after serving for six years on the faculty at Minnesota. Before entering academia, Polsky practiced with the law firm of White & Case in its Miami office. Polsky received his J.D. and LL.M. in taxation from Florida.

The IRS Office of Chief Counsel revived its Professor in Residence program earlier this year. Dormant since the late 1980s, the program provides some of the nation’s top legal academicians the opportunity to contribute to the development of legal tax policy and administration. Reporting directly to the Chief Counsel, the Professor in Residence provides advice and assistance on a wide array of legal issues within the scope of his or her expertise.

Polsky will begin his nine month term as Professor in Residence in September.

Good to see IRS bringing in someone who takes issues of statutory authority seriously. See Polsky, "Can Treasury Overrule the Supreme Court?" 84 BU L. Rev. (2004).
