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 nexus, compliance obligations and exposure are identified, Mike successfully negotiates voluntary disclosure and resolution of the liabilities, including abatement of penalties. Mike then implements and verifies that the tax compliance controls, tax registrations, decision matrices and compliance 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 the due dilgence phase of mergers and acquisition, identifying and mitigating potential tax exposure, successor liability issues, tax clearance requirements, and bulk transfer and other exemption opportunities. With more than 25 years of experience in multistate sales tax, as Leader of his firm, Sales Tax practice leader for global accounting firms, and in-house for two publicly-traded E-commcerce and Technology companies, Mike not only brings his technical expertise to every client relationship, but the practical wisdom from having successfully addressed these very issues as Tax Director for a public e-commerce retailer.
