Representation of individuals, non-profit organizations and commercial entities in local, state and federal tax disputes.
Examples of our representation in this practice area include:
• We successfully represented a Pennsylvania county in overturning on appeal to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania a lower court decision declaring a major source of its tax revenue unconstitutional, in opposing a Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the Supreme Court of the United States, and in developing and implementing a program to preserve the tax benefits on remand to the trial court.
• When a taxpayer brought suit challenging a county’s procedures for hearing tax appeals relating to a county tax, Sprague & Sprague successfully represented the county in having the suit dismissed for lack of merit.
• We secured on behalf a city and county charged with building a major public facility a significant reversal by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania of an intermediate appellate court decision voiding the special purpose tax intended to fund the facility, and we obtained a complete victory for our clients on remand to the trial court.
