Lehman Tax Law is here to help you with any tax law question or dispute, including:
Income and estate tax rules and penalties – Failure to file an income tax return, failure to pay income tax, and late filing or payment of an estate tax return can cost the taxpayer or estate thousands of dollars. Lehman Tax Law is here to see that you understand applicable tax rules and help you avoid the harshest penalties.
Accounting methods – A crucial step in business and taxation involves choosing the right method of accounting and sticking to it. Lehman Tax Law can advise you on cash accounting and accrual accounting, including what method you may be required to use, what method you could benefit from, and how to get approval to switch methods when most beneficial.
Capital gains and losses / Carrybacks and carryovers – Investment losses are no fun, but they can be used to offset the taxes you pay on gains, not just this year but forward and backward as well. Lehman Tax Law can assist you regarding tax-loss harvesting and making sure your actions are acceptable in the eyes of the IRS.
Casualty, theft and other financial losses – Casualty and theft losses can lower your taxes and help take the sting out of a loss caused by a natural disaster, storm or other event. Make the most of this deduction by filing a timely claim for insurance reimbursement, and contact Lehman Tax Law with any issues you encounter.
Claim of right doctrine – The IRS allows a credit when you are forced to return property in one year that you paid taxes on in a previous year. Strict rules apply. Lehman Tax Law can advise you on whether you qualify for the section 1341 credit and build a strong case, so the government recognizes your entitlement to avail yourself of this benefit.
Compromise of tax liability cases – When the IRS says you owe a tax liability, it is sometimes possible to settle with them for an amount less than they say you owe. Lehman Tax Law can advise you on whether you qualify for an offer in compromise and take on the task of securing a favorable resolution of your tax liability.
Taxation of corporations, partnerships and trust entities – Every state regulates business entities differently, but they all provide for organization as a corporation or partnership. How you form your business has lasting implications for how the entity and its owners are taxed. Lehman Tax Law can guide you through the options available and make sure your enterprise is being taxed in a way that makes the most sense, given your overall business needs and goals.
Tax crimes – Lehman Tax Law provides skilled representation and effective advocacy in defense of a myriad of tax crime charges, including tax evasion, failure to file, failure to collect or pay over tax, fraudulent withholding, fraudulent returns, false statements and more. Avoid the most serious consequences of tax crime charges by retaining a qualified and experienced tax crimes attorney.
Real property taxation – As property values rise, even low property tax rates amount to a significant tax bill. Lehman Tax Law can help you challenge an assessment that involved a mistake in the description of the property, the calculation of tax, or some other error.
Reorganizations – Mergers, acquisitions, recapitalizations, changes in corporate form and other transactions could be taxable events, or they could be tax-free. The question turns on how the transaction is conducted. Lehman Tax Law can help you understand the tax implications of your move and guide you toward making the most of your reorganization.
