Michael T. Dillon, Esq. successfully adds value to his clients’ businesses by identifying and minimizing tax obligations, and maximizing refunds and reductions of tax. Once obligations and exposure are identified, Mike successfully negotiates voluntary disclosure and resolution of the liabilities, including abatement of penalties. Mike then ensures that the tax compliance controls, decision matrices and processes are in place to ensure prospective compliance obligations are met efficiently and cost-effectively. Mike regularly represents companies during and after state tax audits, often coming in at critical, “all hope is lost” stages to minimize potential liabilities and negotiate favorable settlements. Mike guides companies through mergers and acquisition buy-side due diligence, identifying and disclosing potential tax exposure, successor liability issues, tax clearance requirements, and bulk transfer and other exemption opportunities.
