David Aughtry of Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry discovered something about himself after graduating from The Citadel, picking up degrees in law and accounting at the University of South Carolina and earning an LLM in taxation at Emory: “I was born to try tax cases.”
He did just that for the Internal Revenue Service for four years, then crossed over to defending their targets. Many of Aughtry’s cases are featured in textbooks and taught in law schools, including his win at the U.S. Supreme Court in Commissioner v. Estate of Hubert. The justices held that a taxpayer does not have to reduce the estate tax deduction for marital or charitable bequests by the amount of the administration expenses that were paid from income generated during administration by assets allocated to those bequests.
