Strasburger has experience in nearly all aspects of business and individual tax planning, including the taxation of corporations and their shareholders, partnerships and partners, limited liability companies and their members, and other entities and their owners. We advise on taxable and tax-free acquisitions, dispositions, mergers, and reorganizations, and real estate, financing, debt restructuring, and leasing activities of businesses. We also advise on bankruptcy tax matters, like-kind exchanges, public and private offerings of securities, joint ventures, venture capital investments, business formations and general business tax matters.
State & Local Tax
We work with clients to minimize state franchise and/or income taxes in various states, frequently accomplished through structuring alternatives and apportionment and allocation methodologies. Strasburger attorneys identify and minimize exposure to state sales and use tax and routinely represent clients regarding applicability of occasional sale exemptions, resale exemptions and collection requirements.
Strasburger tax attorneys review merger, acquisition and divestiture transactions with respect to state and local tax consequences. We also represent clients in state tax audit situations to analyze identified issues, develop audit strategies, negotiate settlements and litigate claims. Strasburger attorneys are also involved in the promotion and drafting of tax legislation that is beneficial to our clients.
Tax Controversy Litigation
Strasburger offers its clients extensive experience in tax controversy and litigation including federal and state civil tax litigation; federal criminal tax litigation, including related white collar crime representation; property tax disputes and litigation; representation of attorneys and accountants in malpractice cases and discipline proceedings; representation of taxpayers before IRS Appeals offices; and representation of taxpayers during civil and criminal IRS examinations.
Property Tax Disputes & Litigation
We represent clients who own commercial tracts of land, including land used for agricultural, industrial, manufacturing and other business purposes. We have significant experience in property tax litigation, particularly arising after an unsuccessful hearing with the administrative review board or after the local appraisal district decides to litigate the review board’s decision. Although our attorneys have substantial experience once these cases reach litigation, we are also equipped to handle the administrative process as well.
Strasburger handles a wide range international tax matters, including structuring inbound and outbound business and real estate investments; cross-border mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures; reorganizing and restructuring multinational corporate groups; handling international tax controversies before the IRS and in the courts; advising on information reporting; and devising specialized planning involving transfer pricing, foreign entity classification, foreign tax credits, foreign currency transactions, profit repatriations, tax treaty issues and reducing or eliminating U.S. estate and gift tax liability.
