MAK Tax Law Group, P.C., Your In-House Tax Department

MAK Tax Law Group, P.C.’s founding attorney Marc A. Kushner has been advising and representing clients in their tax and tax transactional matters and audits for more than 30 years.

Clients – and their accounting and law firms – seek MAK’s (and Attorney Kushner’s) tax advice and representation because they get results, oftentimes beyond what was thought to be possible. No tax matter is too complicated, or too great or too small, and no tax audit or other tax proceeding is too dire for MAK.

For small, mid-size and even larger accounting and law firms for which it is not cost-effective to maintain an in-house tax department – and certainly not one with MAK’s tax expertise and experience – MAK is well-positioned to be that tax department. Whether for a one-off transaction, a tax audit/examination, etc. or on a continuing basis. While these firms work steadfastly to achieve success for their clients in their areas of experience, MAK is there to do the same for their clients’ in its area of experience…Tax!

When an accounting or law firm entrusts its client’s tax needs to MAK, the firm is entrusting its client – and its relationship with its client – to MAK. MAK does not take this entrustment lightly and will work collaboratively with the firm with the singular goal of achieving tax success for the client.

Thirty Years Of Proven Tax Experience And Tax Results

Attorney Kushner has represented and advised billionaire financiers and other high net worth individuals, celebrities, publicly traded and private real estate investment trusts and companies, partnerships, private equity funds, S and C corporations, tax-exempt organizations, etc. in a myriad of tax matters, both large and small, including:

  • Successfully structuring and negotiating merger, leveraged recapitalization, joint venture, formation/initial public offering, liquidation and other transactions, including those valued in the billions of dollars and one liquidation transaction favorably reported by the Wall Street Journal;
  • Successfully representing clients in their tax audits and other tax controversies, some with tens of millions of dollars of tax liability and millions more of interest and penalties at stake, including one recent partnership audit whereby MAK was not only able to reverse approximately $29 million of proposed IRS taxable income increases but found $22 million of additional ordinary deductions;
  • Successfully drafting, interpreting and negotiating partnership, limited liability company and joint venture agreements;
  • Successfully structuring real estate acquisitions, including Section 1031 like kind exchanges; and
  • Successfully structuring cross-border transactions.

MAK also represents smaller clients, who oftentimes have tax matters just as challenging and complicated as those of MAK’s larger clients. MAK understands that to a client, that client’s tax matter is the most important one there is. And that’s exactly how MAK treats it.
