2007 Wade Anderson Memorial Medal Recipient
Dan Bucks is the director of the Montana Department of Revenue, but he will always be best known for serving for almost two decades as the executive director of the Multistate Tax Commission. Dan’s years of dedication to interstate cooperation yielded a productive working relationship with organizations such as the National Governors Association and the IRS and enhanced communication with taxpayer organizations. He brought states together to fight Congressional preemption of state taxation authority. He is perhaps best known, however, for his work to develop uniform policies and laws among the states to minimize corporate interstate tax avoidance. The Medal was presented by Texas Comptroller Susan Combs at the FTA Annual Meeting on June 11 in Chicago.
