Our Tax Team skillfully represents clients in federal and state tax controversies at the audit, administrative and appeal levels. We are experienced in the procedural and strategic aspects of litigation and the complexities of tax law. While we seek to resolve controversies via administrative appeal or negotiated settlement, we also have the experience to effectively litigate tax matters, representing clients at the IRS audit and administrative appeal levels; before state tax, trial, appellate and state supreme courts; and before the United States Tax Court, District Courts and Court of Claims.
Represented the State of New Jersey in a litigation against the State of New York that resulted in a significant victory in favor of our client at the New York Court of Appeals, which declared New York’s commuter tax unconstitutional.
Represented taxpayers before the United States Tax Court and the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit with respect to whether the fraud of a tax return preparer indefinitely extends the statute of limitations to assess tax even though it was the tax return preparer, and not the taxpayers, who acted with the specific intent to evade tax.
