State & Local Taxation
Led by a two-time former Director of the South Carolina Department of Revenue, our State and Local Tax team serves clients throughout the Southeast. We regularly assist Fortune 500 companies, as well as small and mid-size companies, with planning and compliance involving income taxes, property taxes, sales and use taxes, business license fees, and other state and local taxes and fees.
While an issue may be addressed one year, state and local legislation can require ongoing planning for our clients. Our attorneys are routinely asked to assist state leaders in the drafting of legislation. This helps us proactively serve our clients, saving them time and money.
