Overview

The Tax Group represents businesses and individuals before the Internal Revenue Service and state and local taxing authorities in connection with voluntary disclosures, audits, mediations, and administrative appeals. We also have substantial experience litigating tax disputes, including in United States Tax Court and United States District Courts. We have represented businesses and individuals in tax disputes across a broad range of industries, including technology, energy, pharmaceutical, financial, retail, and transportation. Our experience across issues is equally expansive, and includes transfer pricing, tax accounting, worker classification, foreign tax credits, and criminal tax allegations. We help clients navigate the tax controversy process by drawing on our experience, both in private practice and government service. Different phases of a tax dispute require different skills and approaches to achieve results. Our tax controversy attorneys are equipped to handle matters from pre-filing proactive resolutions through post-filing audits, administrative appeals, and, if necessary, litigation. Foley Hoag also has a robust Accounting Defense practice.
