Throughout the life of a business, many business organizations will have an opportunity to purchase one more product lines or some portion or all of another business. Other organizations will have the opportunity to sell some portion or all of their business or become a part of another business organization.
In addition to the basic business points that are typically addressed in transactions of this nature, the structure of these transactions can have costly federal and state tax consequences that if addressed improperly, can significantly increase the cost of the transaction to one or both parties.
If one of your objections in a transaction is to minimize federal or state tax implications of the transaction, structuring your transaction in compliance with federal and state tax laws and regulations can be a critical element of the transaction. We have the experience in acquisitions and divestitures to assist you in developing a structure that meets your business objectives and minimizes the economic impact of federal and state taxation.
