years of handling tax disputes with state and federal government agencies relating to income tax, estate tax, gift tax, and residential and commercial property tax assessments and valuations. Our attorneys work directly
with each client, providing a compassionate and informative environment in which to discuss and resolve tax disputes. Contact our law office to discuss your tax dispute.
Income Tax Disputes
We provide sound legal advice and advocacy for settling
IRS or Massachusetts Department of Revenue disputes. Our cases have successfully concluded with clients paying less income tax than the government demanded.
Settlements usually involve a reduction of penalties and interest.
Business and Corporate Tax Disputes
In sales tax dispute settlements we negotiate for the
reduction or removal of interest and penalties. The owners or managers of a business can become personally liable to pay taxes.
Gifts taxes are assessed once a person gives away more
than $11,000 in 2006. But, a person may give $11,000 each to as many people as he/she wishes and receive a tax exemption. If you are liable to pay gift taxes, you
must use your unified credit. This is what protects your estate from taxation. Proper planning maximizes your benefits
Assets in Multiple States or Jurisdictions
When clients own a home in Massachusetts and
property in Rhode Island or New Hampshire or Florida, estate tax issues become complicated. Clients with multiple residences usually split their time among the
states, and all of the states might claim the person as a resident. We work with clients to clarify their state of residence. When disputes arise we rely on established
tests and laws to prove residency. The state where a person is domiciled or a permanent resident is likely where taxes will be assessed on assets, including estate
taxes, and state and federal taxes on anything the person owned anywhere in the world.
