Briggs provides cutting-edge advice regarding state and local tax issues such as the apportionment of income under state law, sales and use tax issues and compliance, unitary business filing requirements, property taxes, franchise taxes, telecommunications excise taxes and taxes on financial institutions.

Briggs regularly advises clients in matters such as state and local tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings and workouts, partnership and joint venture arrangements, tax-exempt organizations, and tax credits.

We also advise business clients in interstate income taxation, and sales and use tax compliance, a particularly important area for manufacturing clients who distribute products in numerous states. Business clients, particularly those faced with substantial tax reporting requirements because of large work forces, are also well-served by the experience of our tax attorneys in dealing with administrative compliance matters.

Tax Policy Matters. Our tax attorneys are regularly involved on behalf of clients, through professional groups and informal contacts, in the development of tax legislative proposals and administrative regulations, both at the state and federal level. We have assisted in the development and implementation of limited liability company legislation in Minnesota and have been closely monitoring and commenting on proposed reforms of the Internal Revenue Service.
