Sales & Use Tax Representation

Business owners understand the important role taxation plays in the operation of their business. We work closely with clients to ensure sophisticated and lawful tax minimization strategies are in place.  We help our clients avoid becoming intimidated by large government agencies or enter into unfavorable settlements. Our firm is highly specialized in the representation of clients in sales tax audits in the State of Texas—both in administrative courts and state courts.

Texas Sales Tax Audits

  • Full-service representation of clients from the beginning of the audit, directly working with the field auditor, to the exit conference
  • Representation during the internal redetermination process and potential representation of matters before the State Office of Administrative Hearings presided by a Texas Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in Austin, Texas.
  • Representation of matters in Travis County District Court to challenge Texas government agency decisions.
  • Representation of the Taxpayer to the Enforcement Division of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, assisting the Taxpayer to understand all options with regards to potential settlements and relevant enforcement procedures.

Representation of Taxpayers before the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts

We represent taxpayers in a wide variety of disputes and issues with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, including suspension and revocation of sales tax permit issues, collection and enforcement issues, successor liability claims, and many other routine housekeeping matters.

Tax Strategy

We work closely with clients and their accountants to reduce taxes associated with business activities, incorporation, and significant transactions. We keep abreast of the ever-changing and complex tax environment so that we can alert our clients to new planning opportunities and compliance requirements, and to provide legal advice that is timely to our client’s business affairs. Serving individuals, as well as emerging and medium-sized businesses, we have the experience to design creative and practical solutions to lawfully mitigate taxes in business transactions and during incorporation.
