Federal tax services

Our experienced team of specialists can help guide businesses through the complexities of new federal tax legislation and regulatory guidance and changing tax rate environments to realize tax savings and mitigate risks.

The tax environment continues to evolve with new legislation and regulations. The tax rate reduction under tax reform and the potential tax rate increase under new legislative proposals provide opportunities for companies to realize cash tax savings and permanent tax benefits by using accounting method planning to affect when income and deductions are recognized. However, the complexity of accounting method rules, as well as the interaction of the rules with other tax provisions, such as the BEAT, call for knowledgeable and creative advice. Our experienced team of specialists, including many former Treasury and IRS officials, can help guide you through these issues to realize tax savings and mitigate risks. We can help you navigate:
