Our compliance services focus on helping individuals register, maintain and dissolve relationships with state and federal tax authorities. We prepare tax returns for clients nationwide and many of our clients have multijurisdictional tax obligations.
Unlike planning and representation, many form preparetion activities are highly homogenous, which allows us to use standardized processes and automation to deliver these services accurately, efficiently and cost-effectively.
We provide representation services before federal and state tax authorities in most administrative proceedings and provide assistance to council in interpreting tax law in judicial proceedings.

We also help resolve issues with unpaid tax debts, potentially suspending leins, levys and seizures, by negotiating installment agreements and offers-in-compromise.
