For more than forty years, Sills Cummis has successfully defended businesses and individuals in connection with tax controversies. Our representation of clients in this area was significantly enhanced when Larry Horn joined Sills Cummis in 1981 and then again when Rich Sapinski joined the Firm in 1987.

The Sills Cummis Tax Controversy team includes former Assistant United States Attorneys and former IRS litigators – providing the very best defense for our clients.

In addition to handling civil tax litigation matters and income tax evasion, investigations and prosecutions, Sills Cummis has established itself as a leader in the relatively new area of tax fraud investigations, focusing on obtaining “tax amnesty” (voluntary disclosure) for high net worth individuals who have undisclosed, unreported income derived from undisclosed offshore bank accounts. The Firm’s Tax Controversy team has assisted over 1,000 clients in working their way through the maze of federal and state tax amnesty requirements.
