Federal and Pennsylvania State Tax Law Attorneys
The federal tax code has become perhaps the most complex set of laws in the country today. Many state and local governments are struggling financially, including Pennsylvania and many of its cities and towns. One way that governments are trying to raise revenue is by becoming more aggressive in collecting taxes from businesses.
