Tax Law- State and Local

Tax Law Lawyers Helping Clients With State and Local Tax Matters Throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Kaplin Stewart’s Tax lawyers have been helping clients with their State and Local Tax needs for more than two decades.


We partner with clients during all stages of transactions and provide skilled legal advice that helps reduce or avoid many state and local tax liabilities. Whether obtaining a favorable letter ruling from the taxing officials; providing a tax opinion letter; or a simple legal analysis in an email or memo for the file – our clients can count on us to choose the right tools and direction to suit their particular needs and situation.


State and Local Tax often means controversy. We defend tax assessments and file refund claims. We frequently reach favorable settlements in these controversies—significantly reducing our clients’ tax burdens while keeping legal costs to a minimum. When a settlement can’t be reached, we handle these cases at the administrative levels and at court. Whether obtaining a refund or reducing an assessment; we make sure our clients pay the least amount of tax possible.    


We become a trusted advisor and a partner with our clients. We understand that a transaction, audit, or controversy can escalate or change quickly. So, whether it’s a phone call to discuss sales tax on software or an email summarizing Philadelphia’s complicated realty transfer tax rules, we’re always available to provide quick and reliable legal advice so our clients can get the results they need.

Our lawyers have particular expertise in Pennsylvania and New Jersey tax matters but have also handled state or local matters in over 25 states.
