Offering a full range of tax advice, we advise clients about individual, fiduciary, and corporate income tax, sales and use taxes, local property tax issues, and issues involving specialized Maine state tax programs such as real estate transfer taxes, petroleum and special fuels taxes, and tobacco taxes. To provide our clients with the best possible tax advice, we work with clients’ accountants and other tax professionals to help our clients achieve their individual tax and business planning goals. We also represent clients in a wide-range of disputes before federal, state, and local tax authorities, including income and estate tax audits appeals before the Internal Revenue Service and Maine Revenue Service, state sales, use tax audits, and other specialized state tax issues pending with the Maine Revenue Service, and local property tax abatement appeals.
In addition to our extensive tax knowledge and experience, we offer our clients an interdisciplinary approach, frequently working with other practice groups to collaborate efficiently on challenging tax issues, such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and commercial lending.
