Our lawyers handle a broad array of tax controversies, dealing with the Internal Revenue Service as well as state tax authorities.
In addition to preparing tax returns and advising on tax law and compliance matters, our tax lawyers and our Trusts and Estates lawyers routinely handle audits and examinations at the district and appeals levels. The issues touch on estate, gift, generation skipping transfer taxes, the income taxes of corporations, partnerships and other pass-through organizations, income taxes of estates and trusts, and excise taxes and compliance matters applicable to family foundations and other charitable organizations.
At all steps along the tax proceedings, the advice and counsel of our litigation attorneys enhance the quality of the handling of the controversy. While it is most common and desirable to reach a successful settlement administratively, some issues can only be resolved in litigation. Our litigation attorneys have the talent and experience needed for handling trials of tax matters in the whole range of state and federal courts in which such matters go to trial.
