Clark Hill’s Tax professionals guide businesses, families, and individuals navigating complex regulations. We advise on compliance-related issues, offer planning services and advocate to ensure the best outcome in each situation.
Corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and other entities and their owners seek our counsel on international, US federal, state, and local tax matters involving taxable and tax-free acquisitions, dispositions, mergers, reorganizations, as well as real estate, financing, debt restructuring, and leasing activities. We advise on bankruptcy tax matters, like-kind exchanges, public and private offerings of securities, joint ventures, venture capital investments, business formations, and general business tax matters.
Nonprofit, tax-exempt, and charitable organizations seek our tax counsel on the regulation of tax-exempt organizations by state and federal authorities, filing for and obtaining exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the treatment of unrelated business taxable income, and impact investing. We assist our clients with director and officer liability issues, corporate governance, lobbying, political activities, and all aspects of organization and operations.
In personal tax matters, we offer practical and understandable solutions often in collaboration with our estate planning colleagues. This includes counseling clients related to charitable giving and planned giving opportunities.
In addition to proactive planning and advice, we also offer litigation services should the need arise. We have successfully handled several multi-million-dollar cases before the U.S. Tax Court and U.S. Court of Federal Claims, as well as on appeal before the U.S. Courts of Appeal, the U.S. Supreme Court. Outside of the courtroom, we negotiate with IRS Agents and represent client interests before the IRS Examination Division, Collection Division, and Appeals Office of the IRS and State Board of Equalization, among others. At the state level, our team represents clients in audits, administrative appeals, and tax litigation.
