Tax Controversy

Efficiently resolving every type of tax-liability dispute

Butler Snow’s Tax Controversy team has experience with successfully resolving high-stakes, complex tax controversies through litigation, but most of our successes are achieved more privately through administrative hearings or other low-key approaches.

We routinely represent clients regarding tax issues arising from audits by the IRS and state tax authorities. Our tax attorneys represent clients in administrative hearings at all levels of the IRS and state departments of revenue.

While our goal is to resolve even the most contentious disputes in an expeditious manner, sometimes tax disputes end up in court. If the matter cannot be settled on terms favorable to the taxpayer, we litigate in the United States Tax Court and in state courts. Our litigation team provides experience rooted in our deep understanding of tax law—at all levels of government.

Butler Snow’s Tax Controversy team has an established reputation for deep experience across industries and with a variety of types of tax controversies. Given our broad experience representing clients in complex taxation matters, we can provide clients with knowledgeable, innovative and industry-specific solutions, no matter the tax issue they have encountered. The collaborative nature of our firm’s culture helps ensure that we can assemble a tailored team with the tax experience you need.
