TaxWe represent domestic and international businesses and individuals in all areas of federal and state taxation, including individual, partnership, and corporate income taxes; estate, gift and generation skipping taxes; sales and use taxes; and real estate taxes. Business tax planning includes selecting the appropriate form of organization for new enterprises as well as identifying the most desirable method of reorganizing, acquiring, or disposing of a business or business asset.
We establish numerous forms of executive and employee compensation arrangements, and we draft and design qualified pension and profit sharing plans, 401(k) plans, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), incentive stock option plans, cafeteria plans, health and welfare plans, "golden parachute" provisions in connection with anti-takeover measures, and a wide variety of non-qualified deferred compensation arrangements. We also advise business clients with administrative compliance matters involving qualified retirement and welfare benefit plans.
Our tax professionals structure international transactions and advise clients in U.S. taxation of foreign operations and transactions, interstate income taxation, sales and use tax compliance and matters relating to not-for-profit corporations.
