California Tax Lawyers

California tax authorities have increased audit and enforcement efforts in disputes involving state income taxes, payroll taxes, sales and use taxes, and property taxes.  If you are facing civil actions related to tax delinquencies, our lawyers can provide you with a strong defense.

At the Law Office of Williams & Associates, PC, our practice focuses on tax law issues including defense of state tax audits and appeals.  Our attorneys regularly represent individuals and businesses in tax disputes before authorities such as the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the Employment Development Department (EDD), and the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA - formerly the State Board of Equalization (BOE)).  From our office in Sacramento, our lawyers represent individuals and businesses from California and throughout the United States regarding California tax matters.

The following are examples of the types of issues we handle:

  • Audits, tax appeals and protests: Our lawyers handle cases involving state income tax, property tax, sales and use tax, estate and gift tax, fuel tax, and excise tax, including tax related to the sale of tobacco, lottery tickets, and medical marijuana.
  • California residency and domicile issues: If you claim residency in another state such as Nevada or Florida, our lawyers can defend you if your residency is challenged by California tax authorities.  Our lawyers also advise individuals in California exit strategies.
  • California amnesty programs: Our lawyers are knowledgeable of voluntary compliance and amnesty programs for misclassified workers, offshore accounts and other tax issues.
  • California attorney-client fee arbitration representation: If your former attorney overcharged you or gave you erroneous advice, our lawyers may be able to help you get your money back in an arbitration proceeding with the State Bar of California
