Estate and Trust Taxes
Effective estate and gift planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate the tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order.
State and Local Income Taxes
Businesses and individuals may be located or reside in one state and locality, but do business in or derive income from other states and localities under the concepts of state nexus and source income tax laws. We advise businesses and individuals on procedures to follow to ensure that state and local nexus issues are identified and applied in situations where multi-state and/or local jurisdiction tax compliance may exist.
Businesses are often responsible for collecting and submitting sales taxes in many different localities. We can assist your company in the compilation of information and preparation of sales tax returns in an efficient and timely manner.

We can advise and represent businesses and individuals on a variety of matters from basic tax notices and inquiries, to representation during audits, to the negotiation of settlements of tax liabilities through offers in compromise, deferred payment plans or other arrangements.
