Stephen F. Gertzman, national director of federal tax accounting and director of the Accounting Methods and Inventories Group in Ernst & Young's National Tax Department, has left the firm to join Miller & Chevalier’s tax department as a member.

Gertzman is recognized as a preeminent lawyer in the area of tax accounting, and his treatise, Federal Tax Accounting, is considered the leading authority on the topic, according to Miller & Chevalier. He has advised clients on a wide range of tax accounting issues and his industry experience covers major sectors of the economy. He has advised the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service, and his writings have been cited in a number of court decisions.

“We are so delighted to welcome Steve to Miller & Chevalier,” said Miller & Chevalier chair Marianna Dyson. “He brings an absolute wealth of knowledge and instant credibility in the area of tax accounting.”

“Miller & Chevalier has an established and stellar reputation in tax accounting and controversy," Gertzman said.. "I am looking forward to collaborating with the firm’s team of extremely talented and insightful lawyers.”

Before joining Ernst & Young, Gertzman was a partner for over twenty years at the law firm of Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP. He was an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law and taught its course in tax accounting from 1973 to 1993.

He has chaired the Committee on Tax Accounting Problems of the American Bar Association’s Tax Section, its Subcommittee on Tax Accounting Controversies, and numerous task forces on tax accounting issues. Gertzman is a Fellow of the American College of Tax Counsel, a Trustee of the Southern Federal Tax Institute, and a former trustee of the Georgia Federal Tax Conference.
