A Corporate Tax Attorney Provides Tax Counsel for Business

Because of the complexity of the state and federal tax laws and the frequency in which they change, corporations need to have a knowledgeable representative who stays current with these laws. Not only do they need to be in compliance with the IRS and state laws, but often they need to be fully documented.

A Corporate Tax Attorney Handles Litigation on Tax Issues

Should the business have an audit or be behind on taxes, the corporate tax attorney will represent the business at the audit, litigate a settlement on a taxes-due case, or appeal a tax decision on behalf of the company.
