Multimillion-Dollar Sale of Family Pharmacy

Represented a family pharmacy that specialized in compounding, human fertility drugs and hormone replacement therapy. The buyer's tax structure required us to complete a tax-free reorganization of the client's business prior to closing. The transaction also involved complicated tax and dividend issues regarding the majority shareholder's redemption of shares in the holding company that owned the pharmacy prior to closing.

IRS Notice Contested for Online Payments Client

Successfully contested a notice of deficiency from the Internal Revenue Service for an online payments provider. The notice stated the client owed taxes and penalties in excess of $1 million.

Because the client often holds money in escrow for its clients and then disburses the funds, the IRS misinterpreted that money as actual income. We submitted a letter to the IRS notifying them of their error and began preparing a Tax Court petition. In the end, the IRS responded and ultimately closed the case with no additional tax liability.
