State and Local Taxation

Kelly Hart’s team of tax attorneys offers guidance on various taxes in Texas, such as sales tax, property tax, and business taxes, including the previous franchise tax and the current margin tax. The margin tax, implemented on January 1, 2007, imposes a standard rate of 1% on the operating margin of most business activities in Texas, including those conducted by limited partnerships. In addition, the firm has assisted clients in resolving sales and use tax disputes with the Texas Comptroller’s office.
