Experienced in every facet of tax controversies and litigation, Plunkett Cooney’s attorneys stand ready to fight for tax fairness on behalf of their clients. They appear regularly in federal and state courts, as well as before administrative bodies throughout the country.
Below are some of the many local and state tax issues the firm successfully assists individual and business clients with each year:
As state and local jurisdiction tax systems evolve and officials implement increasingly sophisticated enforcement and litigation strategies, companies need sound State And Local Tax (SALT) planning and advice more than ever. Plunkett Cooney’s attorneys advise clients on the full spectrum of state and local tax consulting, planning, compliance, litigation and policy issues. The firm’s SALT team has extensive tax policy and legislative advocacy expertise that is complemented by tax planning and controversy support.
In Michigan alone, enforcement actions related to tobacco products have expanded exponentially. Many of these cases become criminal matters, particularly when allegations go unanswered. The firm’s tax team members help clients retrieve their seized tobacco products, guide them through often arduous and pitfall laden audits, and advise them on strategies for safely navigating the strictly-regulated tobacco industry.
Property Tax Appeals
Individuals and for-profit businesses that own real or personal property may wish to consider a tax appeal. Plunkett Cooney’s tax team members are experienced in the administrative appeals process, and they have successfully represented numerous clients before the tax tribunal, saving them millions of dollars along the way.
