Tax Planning & Disputes

Tax considerations affect most transactions or business decisions. Often a transaction can be accomplished in several different ways. Even though all lead to the same economic arrangement, they can have very different tax consequences. Axley Tax Planning Attorneys pride themselves on their ability to offer real world solutions to tax issues. Our attorneys are able to provide tax planning that is practical, sound and fits our clients’ business goals. When the law is unclear, we analyze the risks and rewards of alternative positions and help guide clients to good decisions. We avoid producing academic analyses that are exhaustive, but do little to help choose a course of action.

Axley Tax Planning Attorneys have the academic background and training to be experts in their field – our attorneys include two attorneys with masters degrees in tax, as well as a certified public accountant – and have a wide variety of experience in tax matters, including real estate development, state sales and use tax, property tax, employee benefits and all areas of income tax from individuals to multi-state corporations. Our attorneys evaluate compliance, structure transactions, prepare returns, and offer general tax advice and assistance. We feel our services are unparalleled for value, reliability and practicality.

There are few things more disconcerting than receiving a notice of examination from the tax authorities. Axley’s tax attorneys have experience in representing clients in state and federal audits, appeals and litigation. We work closely with accountants and return preparers to analyze risk and develop legal positions designed to produce the best results. Negotiation resolves most tax disputes and we have the skills and experience needed to resolve disputes favorably for our clients.

Our tax services include:
  • Preparation of state and federal income, estate and other returns
  • Representation of estates and other taxpayers in valuation disputes
  • Representation of taxpayers and municipalities in property tax matters before the board of review, circuit court and the court of appeals
  • Representation of taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service, Wisconsin Department of Revenue, tax court, the Wisconsin Tax Appeals Commission, Wisconsin circuit and appellate courts and federal district courts
