Federal Taxation

Federal Tax Planning & Controversy

We strive to plan business models that minimize federal tax liability to maximize business profits and work closely with our clients' internal and third party accountants. We believe in the strength of a team and the synergies that can be accomplished if a team works towards a common goal. We enjoy this kind of proactive tax planning role because it gives our clients a competitive market advantage. We handle tax matters with diplomacy, resolve issues as expeditiously as possible, and take a more aggressive tax posture when we find it will benefit our clients.

Unfortunately, tax controversies do arise. Artell Law Group has significant experience with voluntary compliance initiatives, offers in compromise, and federal tax appeals. Artell Law Group's managing partner Rich Artell has "Big Six" accounting firm experience, was Partner and Chair of a Tax Department in a large regional law firm, and firmly believes there is a winner in every game - "why else would they keep score?"

Although we cannot promise a landslide victory in every tax contest, we do promise to efficiently provide the best services in an attempt to win every tax controversy.

Like Kind Exchanges and Involuntary Conversions


Artell Law Group has considerable experience in simultaneous exchanges, deferred exchanges, and reverse like-kind exchanges. We structure not only like-kind exchanges pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 1031, but replacement property exchanges on involuntary conversions as well. We have successfully secured some clients complete deferrals of federal tax liabilities on sales of various real and personal property assets used in their trades and businesses. We also have secured individual investors complete deferrals of federal tax liabilities on real property held for investment.

Artell Law Group has also served as special tax counsel on various like-kind exchanges for other law firms and accounting firms that lack the necessary expertise. Finally, we sometimes serve as a qualified intermediary for clients of a select group of law firms and accounting firms.
