Taxation issues can leach away profits, kill a business deal or land business owners in hot water with the IRS. The law firm of McBrayer provides comprehensive counsel in tax planning and structuring of transactions to minimize tax ramifications. We also advocate effectively for business clients in matters of tax collection, audits or tax litigation.
With law offices in Lexington and Louisville, and a government relations office in Frankfort and presence in Washington, D.C., we serve businesses of all sizes in all industries in Kentucky and neighboring states. Although taxes are part and parcel of operating a company and making business deals, our business and corporate law attorneys can help mitigate your tax burden and deal with government taxing authorities.
Experienced Lawyers for Business Tax Planning
We help clients anticipate tax implications of everything from business entity selection to complex business transactions. We offer tax planning counsel to minimize or offset corporate income tax, payroll tax, sales tax or excise tax. Our attorneys also offer strategies for reducing or eliminating business transfer taxes and business succession (estate tax).
In corporate mergers and acquisitions, for example, we help clients take advantage of beneficial tax exemptions through 1031 exchanges, Section 368 tax-free reorganizations or 338(h)(10) stock purchase elections. We can discuss methods for alleviating taxes in any asset sale, stock sale or business transactions.
Representation for Tax Disputes and Litigation
Our tax law attorneys advocate for business owners in tax controversies with the Kentucky Department of Revenue or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). We represent clients in tax audits or intervene on behalf of clients in disputes over income tax or transactional taxes. In many cases, we can negotiate an offer in compromise or abatement of interest and penalties. We are also prepared to litigate in U.S. Tax Court.
