    Pillsbury has an unparalleled reputation for handling the most complex state and local tax matters. Our State & Local Tax team’s experience is broad and covers the wide range of taxes and fees that are imposed by state and local taxing jurisdictions throughout the United States, including corporate franchise and income taxes, sales and use taxes, real and personal property taxes, gross receipts taxes, documentary and other transfer taxes and personal income taxes. Many of our tax lawyers have worked for state tax authorities, including the California Department of Justice Tax Division, the California Franchise Tax Board and the California State Board of Equalization, which enables us to provide a unique perspective to our clients.

    The State & Local Tax team advises on multistate tax planning and return preparation, structures transactions, provides legal opinions, obtains rulings, assists in audits and represents clients in both administrative and judicial tax litigation in all 50 states. Our team also assists clients in drafting legislation and regulations, submitting written comments and testifying before state legislative and regulatory bodies.

    Our tax lawyers have significant experience with respect to constitutional, unitary business, combined reporting, water’s edge election, apportionment formula, distortion, classification of income, nexus, sales taxation of intangibles, property tax valuation and change in ownership issues.

    Our clients include many of the largest multinationals in the Fortune 50, middle market companies, new business ventures and individuals. We represent companies in virtually all industries, including energy, manufacturing, financial services, pharmaceutical, technology, real estate, transportation, retail, newspapers and publishing.

    The team has litigated cases in administrative tribunals and in state and federal trial courts throughout the United States. We also have argued cases in state and federal appellate courts and in the United States Supreme Court. Our tax lawyers' vast experience in complex state tax litigation matters enables us to handle all state and local tax litigation entirely within the group, which in turn achieves significant cost savings and efficiencies for our clients.
