Tax Law in Pleasanton: Tax Avoidance
Our tax attorneys can assist you with tax avoidance. Tax avoidance is activity undertaken to reduce tax liability not in violation of the law. In some cases tax avoidance is explicitly sanctioned; in some cases avoidance is even the purpose of the tax provision. In other cases avoidance is clearly not anticipated by the tax authorities and reflects some forgotten or unforeseen attribute of the tax law. In all such cases, the taxpayer’s motives and the consequences of his action are the same: the taxpayer intends to reduce his tax burden, and the effect is that he pays less tax than he otherwise would given prevailing tax institutions.
Tax Planning for your Pleasanton Business
Tax planning is an important aspect of financial strategy because it influences the volume of cash flow and the effective cost of investments. Rates of corporate income tax general are high. However, to encourage investments a number of concessions are permitted, such as tax holiday for new investment, accelerated depreciation, and allowances like investment allowance and weighted deductions. Therefore, proper tax planning can reduce the tax liability of an otherwise profitable company to an insignificant sum. If your business needs assistance with tax planning, consult with our Pleasanton tax attorneys.

“Happy and thankful for helping out facing with all the trials and struggled. Thanks for all the support.“
Would you like to discuss your legal matter?
I was in a difficult situation and needed a reputable and trustworthy lawyer to represent me in court against a government agency. I am glad I made an appointment to meet Tom Hogan in his office. The entire office staff is very courteous and professional. Tom Hogan is very likeable, he has a good sense of humor, and my anxiety went away after talking to him for a few minutes. He listened intently on what I had to say and gathered information by asking me several questions pertaining to my case. He has great attention to details. I was able to understand better my predicament after he explained the situation I am in so I decided on day 1 that he is the lawyer I am looking for. He showed up on all my court dates and stood for me against seemingly insurmountable odds. For those who are summoned to appear in court by the government, I guess you can relate… you are in between a hard place and a rock. His arguments turned around the case in my favor. The last court appearance went like a blur and I was still in disbelief as we are walking out of the court house. I asked him, what is going on? He responded ” We won. They are not going to bother you anymore.”Joe Stockton
Mr. Hogan took a personal interest in helping me with my legal issue. It was refreshing to find a lawyer that did not treat you like a number. He asked all the necessary questions so that he could properly represent me. He obviously has a lot of experience and it showed in how he handled my case. I would definitely recommend Mr. Hogan to any of my friends for legal assistance.Al M. Modesto
When I decided to get married he established my pre-nup. Since I had no idea how or what to put into it he was able to advise me on thing I would have never thought about. then 8 years later I needed a legal separation. Since the pre-nup was very detailed it made the legal separation quick and easy. Tom is very knowledgeable and is very understanding. I appreciate that he is tough when he needs to be but at the same time sensitive to the situation. He won’t just tell you what you want to hear but is honest and tell you how the law looks at things. I recommend Tom to anyone that needs a lawyer!Jeri E. Modesto
