State and Local Tax

Our team of lawyers has extensive experience representing clients with regard to state tax matters, both from a planning and controversy perspective. Our representation in this niche area often involves audits, administrative redeterminations, and court hearings with state and local taxing authorities. While our tax attorneys have specialized experience dealing with Texas tax issues including the Texas franchise tax, sales and use tax, and property tax, we regularly counsel clients on multi-state transactions.

Unique among law firms, we also have particular experience in both the real and personal property tax field. We frequently assist clients in obtaining property tax abatements and in the preparation of property tax renditions. In addition, we are adept assisting clients in cases and controversies involving valuations of real and personal property, unequal appraisals, special valuation eligibility (such as agricultural land, timber land and open-space land), exemptions (such as the charitable exemption, the freeport exemption and federal exemptions), inventory valuation, situs issues, and lien and collection matters.
