Massey & Gail represents clients in a wide variety of federal, state, and local tax matters. We provide risk management advice to taxpayers during planning and audits, and represent them in negotiations with local authorities. Where disputes arise, we represent taxpayers in proceedings before state and federal tax courts, at trial, in mediation, and on appeal. Our work spans multiple sectors, including financial services, technology, transportation, telecommunications, retail, insurance, and hospitality.
Our team includes the former general counsel and assistant general counsel for the Illinois Department of Revenue. From their years of experience as tax administrators, our lawyers understand the state and local tax issues our clients face. We also are familiar with the priorities and objectives of state and local taxing authorities.
Because tax issues often present novel legal questions, our tax experts work hand-in-hand with our commercial litigation and appellate teams. Together, we provide clients strategic and innovative counseling, often resolving tax controversies without litigation.
