Acquisitions, Tax Structuring & Tax Planning

Sichenzia Ross Ference LLP’s Tax Practice Group complements the Corporate Law Practice Group by providing advice on the tax consequences of various forms of acquisitions, by structuring tax-free reorganizations, and by tax planning designed to reduce the cost of taxable transactions. The Tax Practice Group also advises U.S. companies on the tax consequences in the U.S and abroad of doing business overseas and on how best to structure overseas businesses from a tax standpoint. We also advise foreign companies on the tax aspects of doing business in the U.S. and on how to reduce their exposure to U.S taxes.

The Tax Practice Group also has a broad administrative practice. It obtains private letter rulings from the IRS on proposed transactions and handles complex tax audits and large collection disputes. The firm litigates individual and corporate tax disputes in the U.S. Tax Court and in all federal courts in the United States.

In addition to servicing the Corporate Law Practice Group, the Tax Practice Group also provides estate planning and estate tax planning to its clients, and prepares wills and trusts in furtherance of those objectives. Trust work includes revocable lifetime trusts intended to avoid probate costs and proceedings and irrevocable life insurance trusts and other vehicles intended to reduce estate tax costs or help provide for their payment.

Finally, the Tax Practice Group establishes tax-exempt private foundations for individuals and companies that wish to devote some of their resources to charitable causes and manage charitable-giving activities on their own. The firm also obtains confirmation from the IRS on the tax-exempt status of the organizations it establishes.
