Our extensive experience advising multinational businesses on local and multistate tax issues is unlike nearly any other firm. It has been at the core of what we do since HMB was founded. Our practice touches nearly every corner of the U.S.—handling matters in all 50 states. This breadth means we can assist you with sophisticated tax planning strategies, ongoing counsel and dispute resolution for any state and local tax (SALT) matter you may encounter.
The understanding and hands-on skill we bring to your SALT matters runs the gamut of almost every situation you may encounter. We focus upfront on risk management strategies that will limit your current and future tax exposures. We specialize in unique areas of the law, like unclaimed property and franchise tax compliance, which few firms are equipped to handle. And we defend you as necessary when facing complex tax controversies or audit proceedings.
We have first-hand experience working in-house at large corporate tax departments, Big Four accounting firms, AmLaw 100 firms and state agencies. This means we not only understand multistate SALT issues across the country, we personally know how they impact you.
Because we tackle the thorniest problems time and again, we intuitively know what is important to state administrators and the actions necessary to bring you timely resolutions. We have worked hard to build and maintain ongoing relationships with key state administrators, which means we know right away where to go to have a matter addressed.
We keep you up to speed on the latest state tax cases and legislative changes, but also assist you with policymaking efforts. We frequently speak on multistate tax issues, have authored comprehensive treatises on significant Illinois and other state tax matters and opine in national publications.
