Taxation and Tax Planning
Greater Danbury business and individual tax planning lawyers
At Collins Hannafin, P.C., our clients benefit from our ability to integrate tax planning into business and corporate transactions, wills and trusts, and even divorce settlement negotiations. For additional information about the scope of our tax practice, contact a Greater Danbury taxation attorney at either of our offices.
For business and corporate clients, we provide legal services in connection with financial and commercial transactions from a tax planning viewpoint. This approach not only helps to minimize tax exposure in the current tax year, but also affords protection against liability for unforeseen tax liabilities in the future based on reporting, documentation, or characterization errors.
For individual and family clients, we offer comprehensive tax planning advice about trusts and other estate planning instruments, prenuptial agreements and property settlement agreements in divorce, retirement planning, and investment mechanisms such as Section 1031 like-kind exchanges and other rollovers of otherwise taxable gains.
Our tax planning attorneys advise clients about the tax consequences of real property transactions, purchase and sales of business interests, mergers and dissolutions, and other operating decisions such as equipment purchases and leases. Additionally, we advise clients about state and local income taxes, sales and use taxes, and property taxes. We also represent clients who are being audited by the IRS and/or the Connecticut DRS. The collection activities of these taxing authorities can be quite burdensome and our goal is to resolve any and all tax disputes in a manner desirable to our clients.
Whether or not business or individual tax obligations are likely to increase in the future, we see no sign that state and federal taxation will become any less complicated in the years to come. To make sure that your business and individual affairs will remain “tax efficient,” contact an experienced tax planning attorney at Collins Hannafin in Danbury or Ridgefield.
