Thorough Preparation Can Reduce Tax Obligations
We concentrate our practice in tax advisory and planning for projects and transactions, including:
Mergers and acquisitions
Liquidations and divestitures
Business restructuring and reorganization
Our firm also provides extensive business and tax counseling in the selection of the type of tax entities, from start-up business ventures to the restructuring and reorganization of mature business entities. This entails the structuring of closely held corporations, including C corporations, S Corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, limited partnerships and joint ventures. Industry expertise includes real estate, insurance, health care, manufacturing and distribution, and professional service entities.
We are also conversant in new and statutorily devised tax markets, such as low-income tax credits, real estate tax credits and the syndication of tax credits. Additionally, we frequently assist clients in structuring transactions or relationships in order to minimize taxation – as an example, we recently assisted a major toy company in structuring royalty payments such that they were taxed at a lower capital gains rate rather than as income.
