Tax and Transaction Planning Counsel
Helping businesses structure income and transactions
Sound tax planning has to begin long before it is time to file your return. The tax code contains many provisions that allow businesses and individuals to reduce their tax liability in a variety of ways. Taking full advantage of the benefits offered in the tax code requires a great deal of foresight and the assistance of experienced tax attorneys. Our lawyers work closely with you and your business to determine how to make the tax code work for you by structuring transactions, taking advantage of programs and investments and judiciously using spending and debt to minimize your tax burden.
Tax planning and business formation
We start working for you from the very start of your business. Our attorneys can draw on the full resources of our entire team to evaluate your business model and projections to structure your start-up business in a tax-efficient manner. We are able to use limited liability companies (LLCs), S corporations and C corporations to place your for-profit enterprise in a favorable tax position. In addition, we can analyze the goals of your organization to determine if you may qualify as one of several tax-exempt organizations.
Tax planning for the life of your business
Once your business is up and running, our business attorneys can continue to help your company take full advantage of the tax code. Using a variety of tools and procedures, we can help you structure transactions and manage income and spending to minimize your tax liability:
