If you need to resolve issues with Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) or local tax authorities (i.e., Scottsdale, Glendale, Tempe, Tucson, Flagstaff, Casa Grande, Sierra Vista, or other Arizona cities), it’s important to put your case in the hands of an experienced tax attorney to resolve your tax problem efficiently and effectively.

The tax law firm of McFarlane Law, PLC, is based in Scottsdale but serves Arizona taxpayers statewide. No matter what type of tax issue you are facing, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Helping Clients Involved in State Tax Controversies

Our lawyers can help you with almost any state or local tax issue you are facing, including:

  • Arizona income tax issues
  • Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT)/Sales Tax
  • Use tax
  • Personal property tax
  • Employment taxes
  • Commercial property assessments
  • Worker classification issues

There are many levels of administrative protests and appeals, depending on the type of tax. The process of appealing a tax liability or an assessor’s valuation of your property or improvements is complicated and full of procedural pitfalls. Our attorneys understand the process and have years of experience dealing with all levels of appeals.

Filing a tax appeal or protest is a way of forcing the state and local tax authorities to negotiate with you. Despite its bad reputation, the state is often willing to negotiate with taxpayers to resolve their controversies. We at McFarlane Law, PLC handle Arizona Tax Court appeals of state and local tax determinations once we have exhausted all administrative appeals.

Handling Maricopa Property Tax Assessments

County tax assessors assess and collect property taxes. Property taxes are one of the primary funding sources for local government in Arizona. Due to the recent downturn in the economy, both in Arizona and throughout the United States, real estate values have depressed substantially. However, in many cases, county tax assessors are not accurately assessing property to reflect the downturn in property values throughout the state. If your residential or commercial property has not been assessed accurately, our Property Tax Law Firm can help.

McFarlane Law also handles issues where the local government has changed your property classification (such as vacant, agricultural and commercial), which can dramatically change the amount of taxes you owe.
