Tax Planning and Problems

The firm actively works with businesses and individuals in solving their tax problems or addressing their tax planning needs.  We are experienced in all areas of federal, state and local tax law.  With a master of laws in taxation and as a certified public accountant, Mr. Russell has dedicated his professional career to providing advice and solutions with respect to tax issues.

Our firm represents clients in tax matters ranging from individual, corporate, partnership and estate tax matters.  This may include assisting individuals in IRS audits, estate planning, or the purchase or sale of a business.  We provide advice with respect to tax consideration when choosing the legal entity in which to conduct business; such as a corporation, LLC or partnership.  We also provide tax advice to businesses with respect to retirement and health plans, purchase and sale of assets, and restructuring or reorganizing the business enterprise.  If tax exemption is the objective, we will assist you with forming tax-exempt or non-profit entities.  We will work closely with you if you have encountered federal, state or local tax problems. This may include IRS audits or notices of tax levy or lien for failure to pay employment taxes, income taxes, or trust fund penalty and Mississippi Department of Revenue audits, levies, or liens for failure to collect sales tax or remit employment taxes, whether before administrative agencies or the courts.
