Nielsen Merksamer has extensive experience with high-profile tax policy matters, whether it is through litigation, regulatory or legislative lobbying, or tax initiatives and referenda. We have a deep understanding of how all these arenas can be used to craft a strategy to obtain our clients’ objectives, and have successfully done so for years. We have broad experience in all California taxes, including corporate and personal income and franchise taxes, sales and use taxes, property taxes, alcoholic beverage and tobacco taxes, insurance taxes and any of the myriad of taxes emerging at the local level, including business license taxes and taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages.
