Tax

Managing one of life's certainties: tax.

When developing customized business strategies for clients, Husch Blackwell carefully factors in tax law implications. Our tax law attorneys work with multinational and domestic companies, their owners and executives, other individuals and estates to address immediate needs and plan for what lies ahead.

Our law firm's Tax team attorneys are subject matter authorities with decades of experience in tax law. Many hold accounting degrees and are CPAs; some have advanced law degrees in tax. Others have been with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) or Big Four accounting firms. Clients trust our high-caliber Tax team to guide them through everything from complex corporate transactions and federal tax disputes, to estate and gift tax avoidance and tax-exempt financing.

Husch Blackwell has been a leader in accessing federal, state and local incentives to fund significant projects. We have advised national, regional and local enterprises and developers on issues such as regulatory compliance, development and land use standards, due diligence and tax consequences. We also understand the structuring intricacies presented by the use of multiple incentives in a single project.
