DEDICATED. EXPERIENCED. Providing Innovative Legal Solutions to Complex Personal and Business Tax Matters

Employment & Business Tax Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale

Helping Companies Resolve Complex Issues Nationwide

Every business owner and employer faces a wide range of tax issues that can impact the company's bottom line. To name some obvious examples, tax implications matter greatly when forming a business, during an audit, and in classifying employees.

Failing to adequately consider the tax issues involved in tax law compliance can result in severe consequences. In some cases, it could even result in criminal investigation and prosecution of a company's officers. Any business under examination by the IRS or another tax authority – or any business that needs advice to ensure compliance of tax laws – needs an experienced tax lawyer with a proven record of success.

Business Formation & Entity Classification

Whether starting a business or forming a new business entity, every business owner must consider the tax implications of these decisions. Different entities can limit your civil liability, but they can also impact a company's taxes. At Bucci Law, we can help you understand the risks and opportunities available for each type of entity.

Our Fort Lauderdale business tax attorneys are well-versed in the tax issues present in all types of U.S. business entities, including:

We also assist clients with international entity formation and classification.

Business Tax Audits

Business tax audits tend to be much more complex than individual tax audits. Our law firm provides our business clients with the legal knowledge, the financial background, and the business acumen needed to address complex taxation issues.

Common triggers for a business audit include:

  • International transactions
  • Questionable worker classifications or reclassifying workers
  • Deductions for certain expenses and losses
  • Ownership of mixed-use properties
  • Maintaining two sets of books

Our founding attorney, Christin M. Bucci, is a certified public accountant (CPA) and holds Master’s degrees in Taxation and in International and Comparative Law. Her legal, financial, and business knowledge makes her an excellent adviser for tax audits, employment tax issues, and payroll taxes.

Employee Classification Issues

The way in which workers are classified — as employees or independent contractors (1099 or W-9) — has a substantial impact on a business's tax obligations. Misclassification of employees as contractors can result in large tax debts consisting of tax deficiencies, interest, and civil penalties.

The IRS' current employee classification test examines a number of factors, such as:

  • The amount of control an employer exercises over the worker
  • The financial aspects of the relationship, including whether the worker is paid hourly, on a salary, or on a per-project basis
  • The nature of the relationship, such as whether there are any contracts between the worker and employer, whether the employer provides all the tools necessary to complete the work, and whether the employer offers any benefits

We can understand these specific factors of our clients and have the knowledge and understanding to provide sensible, actionable counsel to employers.
