State and Local Tax (SALT) attorney Bruce Ely was quoted in State Tax Notes on Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey’s appointment of a tax lawyer to the state supreme court. William Sellers, a Montgomery tax attorney, will fill a vacant associate position on the court.
“Will and I are fellow NYU grads and have been friendly competitors for many years, but we worked closely together for over a decade to establish an independent tax tribunal in Alabama,” said Ely. “The Alabama Supreme Court considers several key state tax cases each year, and to have a justice possessing such an in-depth knowledge of both state and federal taxation will be a real benefit to both sides,” he said.
