Tax

Tax issues can be especially complex but yet are an important consideration in virtually all business and personal transactions. A law firm cannot truly fulfill the legal needs of its diverse individual and business clients unless it can address the tax consequences inherent in its own advice. 

At Jaffe, we work closely with all attorneys throughout our Firm to position them with sophisticated tax advice that will minimize their clients’ taxes. We have the breadth of experience to identify the tax issues that affect our colleagues’ wide-ranging practices and the depth of knowledge to craft thoughtful, comprehensive solutions.

Our attorneys structure corporate transactions that maximize write-offs for buyers and minimize the recognition of gain by sellers and provide outstanding advocacy for our clients in disputes at the federal, state, and local levels. We assist our real estate attorneys with Section 1031 like-kind exchanges and opportunity zone investments and advise our trusts and estates attorneys on transferring wealth without incurring estate or gift tax. We help our litigators reach settlements that generate capital gain instead of ordinary income, and we help clients issue incentive equity without triggering “phantom income.” We also advise our immigration attorneys in the U.S. tax treatment of non-U.S. employees.

These are just a few of the countless ways that our full-service tax practice contributes to make Jaffe a full-service firm. In every instance and with every client, we make a point of understanding your specific needs and then strategically craft the solution that benefits you the most, both immediately and into the future.
