State & Local Taxation
Ohio State & Local Taxation Lawyers
James E. Arnold & Associates, LPA, is a Columbus, Ohio law firm that also serves the Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Dayton areas. We focus on trial practice for both individuals and corporate clients, in both state and federal courts, including state and local taxation cases.
In recent years, the complexities inherent in state and local tax planning have resulted in an increase in tax litigation. If your business or personal finances are being threatened by tax audits, it is crucial that you seek the counsel of an experienced legal professional as soon as possible.
One of the best occasions to resolve a potential tax controversy is when first approached by the Ohio Department of Taxation. In some instances, an assessment can be significantly reduced or even eliminated if the Ohio Department of Taxation’s questions or issues are addressed during the audit stage. Our lawyers at James E. Arnold & Associates, LPA have considerable experience in handling tax matters before the Ohio Department of Taxation and interacting with the Department of Taxation’s senior management.
Our lawyers have handled cases involving:
- Sales and use tax
- Personal income tax
- Commercial activity tax
- Refund claims
- Responsible officer assessments
- Estate tax
- School district income tax
- Corporate franchise tax
- Personal property tax
- Tax increment financing
- Real property exemption requests
We have litigated cases before the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals, Ohio Appellate Courts and the Ohio Supreme Court.
