Taxes affect the bottom line for businesses and individuals alike. We are sensitive to these considerations, and work with our clients and their accountants and other advisors to find the most practical solutions for tax issues.

We have a substantial amount of experience with providing advice in connection with tax-free mergers and acquisitions, asset sales, spin-offs, liquidations and restructurings, as well as tax considerations regarding raising capital and employee compensation.

Working with many closely-held businesses over the years, we also are mindful of choice of entity tax considerations, and the complex mechanics of pass-through taxation whether partnership, LLC, or S Corporation.

For real estate transactions, we counsel our clients in respect to Section 1031 like-kind exchanges, sale and leaseback transactions, the formation of real estate investment trusts, self-directed Individual Retirement Accounts (“IRAs”) and the like.

If need be, we are ready, willing and able to represent you or your business in dealings with the Internal Revenue Service, including audit defense, negotiating offers-in-compromise, and litigating tax controversies.

We also handle “FATCA” and “FBAR” reporting matters and 501(c) tax-exempt organization applications.
