Taxation

Ausley McMullen’s tax attorneys have extensive experience representing clients on a broad range of federal, state and local tax issues for individuals and business. 

Our tax lawyers handle tax planning and structuring of limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, public and private charitable organizations and joint ventures, as well as handling traditional forms of corporations and partnerships. Our tax lawyers render advice on federal, state and local litigation matters and prepare and negotiate complex operational arrangements such as shareholder agreements, employment contracts, buy-sell agreements, business succession and estate plans. Being located in Tallahassee also enables the firm to maintain close contact with branches of state government, providing us with access to lawmakers and allowing us to have influence on Florida tax legislation.

The firm deals on a regular basis with the Florida Department of Revenue in resolving issues with the Department. These include informal protest procedures available to taxpayers challenging tax assessments, implementation of statutory tax provisions and department policies and procedures through rulemaking, in addition to obtaining rulings from the Department regarding tax issues. The firm's tax section includes a former Florida Department of Revenue general counsel and an assistant general counsel who are intimately familiar with Department policies and procedures. The firm can effectively handle issues related to any of the 36 taxes administered by the Florida Department of Revenue. Whatever your taxation issues may be, Ausley McMullen's tax attorneys are prepared to assist you.
