State And Local Tax Controversies

At Lohman, Neschis & Tolitano, LLC, (LNT Law), we have a diversified and comprehensive state and local tax practice. Our attorneys have represented numerous individuals and business taxpayers in state and local tax audits, appeals and administrative hearings. Our lawyers have handled tax cases involving a broad spectrum of tax issues, including:

  • Corporate income tax
  • Personal income tax
  • Sales and use tax
  • Business license tax
  • Employment withholding tax
  • Motor fuel tax
  • Lease tax
  • Chicago use tax and personal property lease tax

We focus on developing solutions for our clients' particular tax issues at each procedural stage of the case from the initial audit, to the appeal before the Informal Conference Board Review (ICB), to litigation at the Office of Administrative Hearings or the new Illinois Independent Tax Tribunal.

Our attorneys have also assisted taxpayers who have been assessed as a "responsible officer" with personal liability or penalty liability with respect to a business's unpaid and outstanding sales or withholding taxes. We have handled numerous litigation cases involving the protest of these personal assessments.

Our attorneys have also assisted numerous individuals and businesses in tax collection by the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR). We regularly represent taxpayers who have a tax debt with the Illinois Department of Revenue by providing assistance with:

  • Negotiating installment agreements
