However, working with an attorney who is well versed in real estate law and transactions is the best way to make sure you have safe legal footholds to protect your future. Real Estate agents are not attorneys and even the most experienced real estate agent with impressive knowledge of the real estate process cannot give you legal advice.

Tax Transactions

A comprehensive tax strategy that covers your business from liability is crucial to your company’s success. Businesses of all types perform tax‐related transactions daily, when they deduct payroll taxes out of employee wages, collect applicable sales taxes on sales, pay real estate tax on any properties owned by the business, and pay any necessary capital gains taxes as they accrue. With so many tax responsibilities to juggle, it is common to fall behind. Miscalculations on any of these taxes, even by a small amount, could expose you and your business to unnecessary fines, fees, audits, and sometimes even government action.
