There are two ways to approach taxation: preventive and defensive. There’s no doubt that the preventive approach is the preferred method but that’s not always possible. Sometimes, defensive actions must be put into place. At Giarmarco, Mullins & Horton, our attorneys are skilled in both areas. With planning, our taxation attorneys can help you avoid most negative situations. If problems do arise, you can be confident in knowing that you have an experienced attorney to tackle the issues head-on.
