Our Tax Practice

McNair has an experienced and sophisticated federal and state tax practice. Among our tax practitioners are former IRS Chief Counsel attorneys, former attorneys with the United States Department of Justice Tax Division, and attorney-CPAs. Over 10% of our lawyers firm-wide have advanced graduate tax law degrees and our tax attorneys are listed in Best Lawyers in America® and South Carolina Super Lawyers® for Tax law. Our tax attorneys regularly represent clients before the IRS and the South and North Carolina Departments of Revenue, and in United States Tax Court, United States District Court, and other tax forums.

Tax law is central to the full range of core services offered to clients at McNair. All of our tax lawyers are engaged in general tax practice, including advising businesses and individual clients on the tax aspects of corporate and partnership/LLC organization and transactions, mergers and acquisitions, the purchase and sale of property (including financing issues), in-bound/out-bound US international tax issues, estate planning, employee benefit plans, IP licensing, state and local taxation, and the myriad of other tax issues affecting business and personal decisions.

Any business transaction or personal decision, whether simple or complex, has potentially significant tax consequences. When advising on your business affairs and personal finances, McNair offers tax counseling on federal, state and local tax issues to maximize your benefits. We closely monitor changing tax laws and regulations to give you the benefit of sophisticated tax planning, while structuring transactions, assets and operations to minimize taxes assessed against them.

Because every level of government has its own tax objectives, organization, statutes and regulations, the rules change constantly, and interpreting them takes skill, foresight and insight. We know that your real tax law objective is finding every legitimate way to minimize tax impact and to maximize the advantages to achieve your financial objectives. Whether you are a company needing guidance on tax issues affecting a business transaction, a tax-exempt organization, an investor seeking to maximize tax credits, or anyone facing a tax audit or controversy, McNair has experienced tax lawyers to help you.
