State & Local Taxation

Addressing Tax Law on the State and Local Level

At the law firm of Buckley & Gerry, our lawyers are well-versed in state and local taxes. In fact, we have more than 30 years of experience related to sales and use tax, as well as other state and local taxes. John Buckley, the lawyer who takes the lead on all our tax law cases, began his career in a major technology company. Needless to say, the base of knowledge that our clients benefit from is sufficient to address even the most complex matters related to state and local taxation.

Comprehensive Tax Law Services

Our attorneys can handle all issues related to all state and local taxes, including:

  • Sales and use tax
  • Privilege tax
  • Gross receipts tax
  • Personal property tax

Our services include tax planning and audit response for businesses in New York. When a business is audited by the New York Department of Taxation and Finance and receives an assessment, we are the law firm it turns to in order to challenge the assessment both administratively and before the tax tribunal.

Our services are available to New York businesses that have a nexus in other states, as well as out-of-state businesses that have a nexus in New York. For example, a California business that wants to ensure compliance with New York's sales and use tax laws can turn to us for help. We have extensive knowledge of the variations in tax law from state to state, and we can use that knowledge proactively and reactively, when necessary.

Our law firm also assists individuals with issues related to audits, as well as other state and local taxation matters.

Credits and Incentives for Companies Doing Business in New York

Companies may be able to receive tax credits and incentives for locating or remaining in the state of New York. Our lawyers have the experience to work with the Empire State Development Corporation, the entity that provides those credits under the Empire Zone program, to negotiate the most valuable credit package for your business.
