Today, no area of law seems more pervasive or susceptible to change, as the area of taxation, at the federal, state and local levels. Legislators, courts, the Internal Revenue Service and state and local tax authorities seem intent on ensuring that tax laws continuously expand, change and become more complex.

Our attorneys not only have a good knowledge of the current statutes, regulations, and cases to help guide businesses and individuals through the tax labyrinth, but also of the prospects for change, and the fundamental policy issues that drive such changes, enabling them to help keep businesses and individuals a step ahead of the tax collector. We take this approach in dealing with all areas of taxation including:

  • Personal Income 
  • Corporate Income 
  • Partnership Income 
  • Limited Liability Company Income 
  • Limited Partnerships & other investment vehicles 
  • Tax Exempt Entity Qualification/Taxation 
  • Private Foundation Operations & Restrictions 
  • Employment taxes 
  • Retirement & Estate Planning and Trusts 
  • Employee Benefit Taxation 
  • Like-kind exchanges 
  • Tax incentives to Real Estate & Business Development 
  • IRS Audits & appeals
