GableGotwals’ attorneys have advanced tax law degrees (Master of Laws in Taxation), and include Certified Public Accountants.  Our tax attorneys have written extensively on tax law in national and state professional publications and regularly speak at seminars and institutes for tax professionals sponsored by the Oklahoma Bar Association, Oklahoma Society of CPAs and other organizations. One of our attorneys has served as chair of the Section of Taxation Law of the Oklahoma Bar Association, and for more than a decade has published an annual Section update in The Oklahoma Bar Journal describing newly enacted Oklahoma tax laws.

 

GableGotwals represents large publicly traded corporations, privately and closely held businesses, not-for-profit corporations, and individuals. Our firm assists and represents these clients in tax planning, structuring and negotiating terms of transactions, organization and reorganization of businesses, and representing clients in relation to taxing authorities at the Internal Revenue Service and Oklahoma Tax Commission.

 

The firm has extensive experience in Oklahoma state and local taxation, including income, sales and use, gross production and ad valorem taxes. Our attorneys have advised numerous clients on a wide variety of Oklahoma tax laws, proposed and new legislation, and Oklahoma Tax Commission rules and decisions.  This has included multi-state taxation and nexus issues associated with business operations related to Oklahoma.

 

We provide services in tax controversies by effectively representing clients against federal, state and local taxing authorities in administrative and judicial proceedings.  Our representation includes the provision of advice and representation on proposed assessments and the seeking of adjustments and refunds of taxes that have been improperly collected or remitted.  We focus on achieving the best and most cost effective result through either negotiation, settlement, or litigation.
