Overview

Novara Law's Tax Division represents publicly traded companies, small businesses, municipalities, families, and individuals throughout Michigan, as well as the United States. We are dedicated to providing timely and efficient tax solutions. 

Supporting Michigan taxpayers with legal tax issues does not have an annual tax season. Questions arise when clients revamp business activities or tax laws change. Clients face tax controversies when they receive a property tax notice from a local assessor or a tax adjustment notice or final assessment from the Michigan Department of Treasury. In any event, we stand ready to assist.

Tax notices from governmental taxing authorities often require a taxpayer to take action or respond within a certain period of time in order to preserve their right to appeal. We help clients navigate through audits. We represent taxpayers in administrative appeals available directly through the taxing authority, including local property tax boards of review and administrative hearings before the Michigan Department of Treasury’s Hearings Division.

When tax matters are not resolved through negotiations and administrative appeals, Novara Law represents clients in litigation before the Michigan Tax Tribunal, Michigan Court of Claims, U.S. Tax Court, as well as other state and federal circuit courts. We have extensive experience in every aspect of tax litigation, including discovery, summary disposition, trial, and appeals before the Michigan Court of Appeals and Michigan Supreme Court.

We draw from this extensive experience when representing clients in matters involving a full-range of state and local tax issues including:

  • Michigan Sales and Use Tax
