Guy E. Whitesman

Guy E. Whitesman of Ft. Myers is the Tax Section’s 2021-2022 Gerald T. Hart Outstanding Tax Attorney of the Year.

Each year the chair of section selects an individual who has made major contributions to the advancement of the practice of tax law and who exemplifies the highest standards of competence and integrity. Chair Harris L. Bonnette, Jr. chose Whitesman of Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt because of his “leadership, work, and participation in Tax Section matters leading up to his year as chair of the Tax Section for 2010-2011 where he navigated the section through legislative and administrative challenges. His service to the Tax Section did not end there. Guy continued to participate in Tax Section activities, providing valuable input and analysis on tax issues important to taxpayers as well as serving as a speaker in continuing legal education programs.”
