THE TAX SECTION recognized University of Florida Law Professor Dennis Calfee as the Gerald T. Hart Outstanding Tax Attorney of the Year at the section’s 35th annual meeting. Participants praised Calfee for his assistance to students and colleagues during his career on the UF Law graduate tax faculty that began in 1975. “We know Dennis in a lot of different ways, wearing a lot of different hats in the program,” said UF Law Graduate Tax Director Michael Friel during the ceremony in Gaineville. “He is – as we all know – an extraordinary scholar with a leading treatise in the country in estate gift tax. He is … a truly extraordinary teacher.” Friel was among many speakers, including UF President Bernie Machen and UF Law Dean Robert Jerry and numerous UF Law alumni, to acknowledge Calfee’s influence and reputation in the tax world. At the end of the ceremony, Dean Jerry and UF Law alumnus Richard Comiter announced the successful completion of the campaign to endow the Dennis A. Calfee Eminent Scholar Chair in Taxation.
