Individual Income Tax and Estate Tax Planning
Individuals need to engage in tax planning for many different reasons. In some cases, high-net-worth individuals should work with a lawyer on strategies to mitigate certain taxes and potential tax penalties. In other cases, individuals may need assistance planning to minimize estate or gift taxes.
Some individuals are also business owners, running their companies as sole proprietorships. While a sole proprietorship is in some ways the simplest type of business structure, it exposes the owner to personal liability for the activities of the business and conflates the business’s tax situation with that of the owner. Given that the individual and the business are the same entity for taxation purposes, tax planning can get complicated without the assistance of an experienced tax and business attorney.
Business Tax Planning
Tax planning for businesses can be extremely complicated, and it is always beneficial to have an experienced Atlanta taxation lawyer who can assist you. If you are considering starting a business, you need to learn more about the business structures available to you and the ways in which the different methods of taxation of a partnership, LLC, and corporation could significantly affect your tax planning strategies.
If your business engages in regular real estate transactions or has plans for a merger or acquisition, tax planning can also help you avoid unnecessary tax costs. Every business should work with an experienced tax and business attorney to determine the best strategy for obtaining business tax credits.
International Tax Planning
In addition to serving individuals and businesses in the Atlanta area that need assistance with local and federal tax planning, we also serve clients who do business internationally and have questions about:
- Creation of offshore entities;
- Understanding foreign tax laws;
- How offshore tax jurisdictions affect tax planning; and
- U.S. tax reporting requirements.
