Attorneys on the Taxation team provide strategic planning to help reduce your tax burden and resolve difficult disputes if you face audits or other tax controversies.
Tax Planning and Transaction Structuring
The tax attorneys handle tax planning and structuring of limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, public and private charitable organizations and joint ventures, as well as handling traditional forms of corporations and partnerships. They prepare and negotiate complex operational arrangements such as shareholder agreements, employment contracts, buy-sell agreements, business succession, and estate plans.
The Taxation team has experience in federal, state and local litigation matters. Attorneys on the team regularly deal with the Florida Department of Revenue and the IRS in resolving taxpayer issues. These include informal protest procedures available to taxpayers challenging tax assessments to obtaining rulings regarding tax issues. The Taxation team includes a former Florida Department of Revenue general counsel and attorneys who are intimately familiar with Department policies and procedures. The firm can effectively handle issues related to any of the taxes administered by the Florida Department of Revenue. Whatever your taxation issues may be, Ausley McMullen's tax attorneys are prepared to assist you.
The best way to resolve tax disputes is by avoiding the disputes in the first place.

Ausley McMullen’s location in Tallahassee enables the attorneys to maintain close contact with branches of state government, providing them with access to lawmakers and allowing them to have influence on Florida tax legislation.
