CarrisLegal provides experienced legal counsel to clients on all matters arising from, federal, state and local tax laws. Our service areas include ad valorem, asset protection, consulting, controversy, corporate, franchise, income tax, state tax, insurance, international, IRS audit, mergers and acquisitions, partnership, personal, planning, property, real estate, and reorganizations. Our clients make up a broad spectrum of taxpayers including public and private companies, partnerships, nonprofit organizations, estates and trusts, individual taxpayers, and insurance companies.
We work closely with clients to reduce taxes associated with business activities and significant transactions, in the areas of tax review, compliance, reporting and controversy. We stay abreast of the ever-changing and complex tax environment so that we can alert our clients to new planning opportunities and compliance requirements, and to provide legal advice that is timely to our clients' business affairs. Serving individuals as well as small, emerging and middle market businesses and large, multinational corporations, we have the experience to design creative and practical solutions to mitigate taxes in complex business transactions.
We provide clients with representation in tax examinations/audits, protests to the IRS Office of Appeals, and in equivalent state and local appeals functions. We are admitted to practice before the U.S. Tax Court, U.S. District Courts, as well as state and local tax authorities and courts.
Planning for the accumulation, management and transfer of wealth in the most tax-efficient manner involves development and implementation of a myriad of strategies.
