Tabname

We have an extensive practice involving sales and use, franchise, severance, property, and other state and local taxes. Our attorneys advise clients on state and local tax issues and structuring, and we also represent clients in state and local tax disputes. We have extensive experience representing clients in administrative proceedings before the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, county appraisal districts, and other tax authorities, including in court trials where necessary.

While our attorneys primarily advise and represent clients in Texas tax matters, we also saved a client more than $1 million in delinquent New York taxes, penalty, and interest by obtaining a favorable decision in a case described on the front page of the New York Law Journal as "potentially pivotal," since it was the first case to address whether the mere presence of a product in the state is sufficient to subject the company to tax.
