Arent Fox provides tax advice that fits the business and personal objectives of our clients. In connection with tax planning for individuals, we counsel clients with respect to family and marital trusts, charitable trusts, life insurance trusts, family limited partnerships and limited liability companies, generation-skipping planning, sales to grantor trusts and historic preservation and conservation easements.
Our lawyers represent clients in tax disputes before the Internal Revenue Service, state tax authorities, and administrative agencies. We negotiate directly with federal, state, and local tax assessors and work to resolve disputes through negotiation, mediation, litigation, and other types of alternative dispute resolution to achieve the most favorable results for our clients.
We also handle administrative matters, including obtaining IRS National Office rulings on proposed transactions and representing taxpayers before the audit and appeals divisions of the IRS.
