dcsimg Federal Tax Controversy and Litigation

Federal Tax Controversy and Litigation

Our tax practice at McGuireWoods involves civil and criminal tax litigation and administrative tax controversies. Our tax litigation attorneys represent individuals, corporations, nonprofit organizations and other business entities in a number of tax audits at federal, state and local government levels. We also regularly represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service Appeals Division and a number of state and local tax departments.

Our tax litigation lawyers frequently represent clients before all judicial forums which handle tax matters, including the United States Tax Court, United States Bankruptcy Courts, United States District Courts, United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and many state trial and appellate courts.

We pride ourselves on managing complex tax litigation so as to control fees and costs for our clients. McGuireWoods clients' tax litigation matters are handled by trained tax attorneys who also have significant litigation experience. This unique characteristic sets us apart from other law firms that frequently must assign both a tax lawyer and a non-tax litigator to a tax controversy. Our tax attorneys have earned post-graduate degrees in taxation and possess a tremendous amount of experience litigating federal, state and local tax issues before all courts and administrative agencies. This allows us to offer clients the sophisticated tax training and skills required to litigate the appropriate tax treatment for transactions and other events of tax import before the courts in the most cost-effective manner, with a high degree of confidence and expertise.

Case Study

McGuireWoods obtains full concession from IRS in pro bono tax case

Representing a pro bono client on behalf of The Community Tax Law Project, a 501(c)(3) organization representing low income taxpayers, we obtained a full concession by the IRS less than one week before a tax case was to be tried in U.S. Tax Court. We established that a father was entitled to a dependency exemption for his son, even though he did not have physical custody for more than half the year.
