TAX PLANNING – Our firm handles tax planning for individuals, startups, fully functioning businesses, and trusts. The tax codes and regulations are forever changing and the individual and business owner must be fully aware of those incentives and protections available within those laws. Our strategic tax counsel encompasses a variety of services: (1) Individual investment planning; (2) Business entity selection; (3) Business transactions structure; (4) Business employee-hiring tax incentives; (4) Federal, State, and Local tax filing and reporting requirements; (5) Individual and Business asset protection; (5) Employee equity incentives planning for the employee and employer; and (6) Income tax, Sales and Use Tax, Payroll tax, and other jurisdictional tax planning.
BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS – We provide legal counsel for businesses and their owners, directors, officers, and employees for business and employee transactions. The services provided can be as early as entity formation and structuring or transactions involving contract drafting, corporate governance requirements, and business reorganizations. In addition to those business transactions, our firm provides intellectual property services for copyrights and trademarks from registrations, renewals, filings, and licensing. We understand our clients’ necessity to start or strengthen their brand, and we help achieve their needs. Lastly, our firm can assist businesses and individuals with needs of consumer and business debt collection. Our services with respect to collection are for those post-judgment matters.
TAX CONTROVERSY – We understand the legal complexity of the tax laws of federal, state, and local jurisdictions can sometimes cause individuals and businesses to enter in unfavorable situations involving government tax assessments or audits. Our firm represents taxpayers of all kinds in front of the Internal Revenue Service, California tax authorities, and other applicable jurisdictional tax departments. Our goal is to limit government collection action such as bank levies, real property liens, and wage garnishments to ease the stress and burden of the taxpayer. We also represent taxpayers with matters that escalate to disputes involving the U.S. Tax Court, Court of Claims, U.S. District Court and other tribunals. It is important the taxpayers understand procedures for tax collection and dispute. Taxpayers will be surprised that tax authorities often have assessment and collection procedural failures. The time to act is as soon those tax authorities start the inquisition. Please use our contact form if you need assistance with a tax controversy matter.
