In order to make prudent investment and business structuring decisions, it is important to know the domestic and international tax consequences of such decisions. Tax statutes, regulations and international agreements are ever changing in the United States, the various states of the United States, and foreign countries.

At Harper Meyer we provide a full range of tax advice to private companies and individuals with respect to structuring their investments and business affairs, with an eye towards reducing overall international tax liability while being mindful of reporting and compliance requirements.

We provide extensive advice with respect to the formation, operation and dissolution of foreign and domestic corporations and trusts, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and not-for-profit corporations. Our tax practice includes the negotiation and documentation of business relationships, with the goal to minimize worldwide taxation on investments and business operations.

In addition to investment and business tax planning, we assist families with pre-immigration and expatriation tax planning with a view towards minimizing ultimate U.S. income and estate taxation. Our tax planning for families includes succession planning and tax reduction for U.S., foreign and multi-jurisdictional families.

Often tax planning with respect to U.S. income taxation is an important, but not the sole component, of tax planning. At Harper Meyer we provide complete advice as to state taxation, including state sales tax and income taxation.
