Tax Controversy

Your day in court… or preferably, out of court.

We have an active, successful, and highly respected tax controversy practice. Because of our extensive and wide-ranging experience before state and federal administrative agencies and the courts, Lourie & Cutler is prepared to handle all important tax disputes. Among the tax services we provide are:

  • Representation in U.S. Internal Revenue Service matters. Our services extend to all levels of the process, including income, gift, and estate tax audits, and conferences on these matters before the Appeals Office of the Internal Revenue Service.
  • Representation in state tax controversies. In Massachusetts Department of Revenue matters, we represent clients in audits, as well as at hearings before the department's Office of Appeals. We also handle cases before the state Appellate Tax Board.
  • Litigation (when appropriate). Although our goal is always to achieve the most favorable results without resorting to trial, we litigate when necessary. Our attorneys have represented clients in the U.S. Tax Court, U.S. District Court for Massachusetts, U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Lourie & Cutler attorneys handle cases for individuals, families, and businesses, and we also advise attorneys in other fields who need specialized tax counsel.
