International tax services

An increasingly integrated global economy presents a world of opportunities for U.S. companies – and a complex web of tax planning and compliance challenges. Our International Tax Services team can help your organization structure international acquisitions, start-ups or joint ventures. We can solve transfer price and tax planning challenges and assist clients with innovative expatriate tax services. Our International Tax Services team works to understand your tax issues, business strategies and goals in order to develop, refine and implement tax strategies that exceed your expectations. Our affiliation with RSM International means our clients have access to more than 24,000 professionals and 730 offices in the world’s leading markets.

State and local tax services

Companies already understand the compliance headaches and administrative burdens of state and local taxes. With states looking to ramp up revenue collection, those burdens will only increase. Without a disciplined, integrated approach to planning for the full range of state and local taxes, companies face bottom-line draining and resource-straining audits, assessments, nexus inquiries and other costs. Our State and Local Tax Services team will help you gain a complete understanding of your tax position across all jurisdictions and will work with you to develop an integrated approach that helps to minimize your effective state rate, maximize leverage of available credits and incentives, uncover planning opportunities and streamline demands on your people and processes.

Washington national tax

Providing effective tax advice to our clients means staying abreast of constantly-evolving federal, international and state tax concerns. Our Washington National Tax specialists work every day to help ensure our tax advisors across the firm have the most up-to-date information possible. And they also make sure our clients’ concerns are heard on Capitol Hill. Our Washington National Tax professionals work hard to inform legislators and government agencies about the potential ramifications of proposed legislation and the current effects of existing laws, giving the companies and individuals we represent a strong and credible voice in Washington. Our Washington National Tax office also gives our clients and professionals an on-the-spot resource for specific technical questions or to raise issues with taxing authorities.

Private client services

For business owners, wealthy families, executives and other individuals with significant wealth planning needs and tax concerns, there are no easy answers. Business owners with liquidity concerns and transition planning needs. Families seeking to build on what they have achieved while managing the transition to succeeding generations. Executives weighing the tax effects of numerous, often complex, compensation streams. Individuals seeking to meet their charitable goals while maximizing their tax benefits. Our Private Client Services professionals distill the lessons learned from serving thousands of clients into solutions tailored to your particular goals and circumstances. From wealth planning to tax compliance and planning services to family office design and management to transition planning to valuation services, we combine the help you need with the personal focus and attention you deserve.

Tax function optimization

The true cost of taxation isn’t measured just in what you pay the government – it’s also measured in the time, effort and expense your organization’s tax efforts require. Our tax function optimization professionals can analyze your processes, benchmarking them against leading practices to improve performance while controlling risk. We can help you explore tax technology solutions, implement the right tools and convert time-intensive, ad hoc processes into streamlined, efficient procedures that will give you the high-quality, timely results that your management team needs. To help you maintain appropriate staffing levels, we also can deploy our own process and technology solutions.
