Stop Tax Issues Before They Happen

At WHGC, we are intricately familiar with the U.S. tax system and how it affects our clients. Virtually all areas of our practice involve tax law to some extent, and failing to plan for the tax consequences of a transaction can be very costly in the future.

WHGC attorney John Frederick Karch holds an L.L.M. in Taxation from the University of San Diego, and is a certified public accountant (CPA) for the state of California. Mr. Karch works closely with the rest of our skilled team of attorneys to offer full-service solutions that incorporate proactive strategies to mitigate potential tax issues.

Holistic Solutions From A Multi-Disciplined Law Firm

We are more than just lawyers — we are problem solvers. Tax issues can stem from a multitude of legal matters, so it is vital to have insight of an attorney who is well-versed in the complexities of the U.S. tax code.

Don’t think tax issues affect you? Below are just some of the ways tax law has impacted other areas of our practice:

  • International business: Whether you are looking to expand your operations to the United States or are an American looking to expand internationally, U.S. tax law does not start and stop at the border. Decisions involving commercial real estate, manufacturing, product design and more all must account for the U.S. tax code.
  • Real estate: Purchasing, selling, leasing and operating real property nearly always has tax implications. Failing to properly plan can have massive costs, and can immediately dampen an otherwise successful real estate transaction.
  • Intellectual property: Different types of intellectual property are taxed in different ways. Even when your property is not tangible, it may still have a major impact on your tax burden.
  • Trusts and estate planning: Many people are surprised to discover how much in taxes are taken from their loved one’s estate after they pass. With proper planning, you can mitigate the tax owed by your estate.

Regardless of your situation, it is important to perform your due diligence and ensure you are compliant with all tax laws before you move forward.
