The Tax Lawyers: the premier portal to recommended taxation lawyers, practice area news and legal insights:
Tax law refers to the rules made by the government to collect revenues. Taxes can be imposed on individuals, businesses, corporations, and other legal entities such as a trust, as well as on the value of an estate or gift. There are also other forms of taxes, like consumer sales taxes, use taxes and real estate taxes.
A qualified tax attorney should have an in-depth knowledge of the Tax Code and follow the changes in every area (code, cases, regulations, rulings) of tax law as they develop.
