Steve Moskowitz founded the tax law firm of Moskowitz, LLP with the firm belief that everyone with the drive and commitment to start and operate a profitable business should not be held back by fear or ignorance of the tax code. In fact, one of the core principles of our firm is that individuals and businesses should learn how to benefit from it.
Business tax disputes
We know that dealing with the threat of a tax investigation is not only daunting but also time consuming. Whether you have operated afoul of the tax laws or are perfectly innocent of all wrongdoing, our team of tax attorneys can represent you in your business tax disputes and help you avoid or minimize tax penalties.
Business tax planning and reporting
Business tax planning and reporting is not an annual event – it is an ongoing process that requires regular meetings with your tax advisor to determine how you can take full advantage of the deductions and credits that are legally available to you. Our highly experienced tax lawyers and accountants can advise you on wide range of business management and tax issues, both general and industry-specific, and can keep you current on all your domestic and international tax reporting.
Employment tax audits & disputes
The California Employment Development Department (EDD) pursues it revenue through aggressive employment tax audits, investigations, and prosecutions. If you are an employer who did not pay over taxes withheld from your employees’ paychecks, who incorrectly classified workers as independent contractors to avoid paying payroll taxes, or are otherwise noncompliant, our tax team can help you.
Establishing your business
We provide assistance with many aspects of starting and maintaining a new business, including, but not limited to, choice of entity (e.g., S-Corporation, C-Corporation, Partnership, LLC), business formation, licensure and acquisition of any required permits, negotiation and drafting of contracts, and preparation of shareholder’s agreements. We also ensure that your business is in compliance with laws concerning employee benefits, payroll taxes, and federal/state anti-discrimination laws regulating the hiring of employees.
