Tax Controversies

Tax Controversies


Our attorneys have represented corporate, individual, and institutional taxpayers in tax controversies involving examinations and appeals of federal income tax, excise tax, estate and gift tax, and state and local income, excise, sales and use, and property tax issues. We have experience in dealing with the Internal Revenue Service and state and local governments at all levels of administrative proceedings, regularly handling audits at the initial stage and through the appeals process. In addition, we have worked extensively on issues dealing particularly with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.

We assist our clients in seeking proactive resolution of all types of tax controversies, including:

  • seeking private letter rulings
  • negotiating settlements of disputed tax positions
  • participation in voluntary disclosure programs
  • offers in compromise; and
  • collection due process hearings.

When necessary, however, we are prepared to protect our clients' positions through litigation in federal and state courts, including the United States Tax Court.

Each of our lawyer's e-mail address is provided with his or her biography. If you are not a current client of our firm, you should not e-mail our lawyers with any confidential information or any information about a specific legal matter, given that our firm may presently represent persons or companies who have interests that are adverse to you. If you are not a current client and you e-mail any lawyer in our firm, you do so without any expectation of confidentiality. We will not establish a professional relationship with you via e-mail. Instead, you should contact our firm by telephone so that we can determine whether we are in a position to consult with you about any legal matters before you share any confidential or sensitive information with us.
