Home Taxation


We’re the right fit for your business and tax needs. We focus on the needs of entrepreneurs and small to mid-size businesses, for whom we often serve as in-house counsel. Our expertise in business law and corporate matters aligns with most small businesses’ needs. Our experience in business formation, contract drafting and negotiations, business disputes, real estate and business and real estate litigation ensures that our clients are protected and represented with experience and vigor.

Primuth, Driskell & Terzian, LLP, makes the tax laws work for our clients, by providing comprehensive services that integrate tax planning, transactional assistance, and tax controversy resolution. Our lawyers provide tax advice and representation to for-profit and nonprofit businesses and individuals at the federal, state, and local levels. In every tax matter, we emphasis creative guidance that helps achieve financial objectives while maximizing tax advantages and minimizing tax liabilities. We know that every government and taxing authority has its own tax objectives, organization, and statutes, so we keep abreast of the constantly changing law and regulations and interpret them with skill and insight.

What Makes Us Different

With our diverse business tax clientele, we have experience with a broad range of complex tax issues in an array of industries. We guide our clients through complex tax matters such as the structuring of sophisticated acquisition and financing transactions, the organization of business activities to achieve optimal tax outcomes, and the representation and resolution of audits and disputes with tax authorities. We employ an entrepreneurial, practical approach to addressing our clients’ tax issues, reflecting the business realities for our clients large and small.

Primuth, Driskell & Terzian, LLP, is proud of our work with a variety of nonprofit organizations, including large multi-state organizations and small home-based nonprofits. We find that our experience in dealing with legal issues across for-profit and nonprofit business sectors enables us to benefit our clients in other sectors more effectively. While our client’s chief concern may be receiving, maintaining, or reinstating its tax-exempt status, we also take a wider view that integrates tax planning, transactional assistance, employment law and employee benefits, and general business guidance.
