ATTORNEYS AND COUNSELORS AT LAW
FEDERAL TAX CONTROVERSY AND LITIGATION  The   main   focus   of   our   practice   is   representing   individuals   and   businesses   in   federal   tax   controversy   matters.      Our   firm   actively   assists   our   clients and   their   accountants   in   resolving   tax   issues   through   all   levels   of   review,   from   initial   audit   to   appeals   and   litigation.      Our   attorneys   are experienced tax specialists at resolving all manner of federal tax problems.  We handle all phases of federal controversy, including:
STATE TAX CONTROVERSY AND LITIGATION  We   also   handle   state   tax   issues   arising   in   Florida   and   throughout   the   United   States.      These   issues   involve   state   income   tax,   Sales   and   Use   Tax, Florida   workers’   compensation   audits   and   lawsuits,   and   Florida   unemployment   compensation   matters.      Should   a   corporation   or   other   business entity   be   audited,   we   handle   both   the   audit   and   appeal,   if   necessary.      We   also   handle   Florida   criminal   state   matters   involving   solely   Sales   and Use Tax issues.
ESTATE AND PERSONAL TAX PLANNING Estate   planning   has   now   evolved   into   much   more   than   avoiding   taxes   and   wealth   preservation.      While   we   are   experienced   tax   attorneys   and specialists   in   the   area   of   estate   taxes,   recent   statistics   show   that   less   than   one-half   percent   of   American   estates   will   be   taxable   at   the   federal level.      This   does   not   mean,   however,   that   only   the   uber   rich   need   an   effective   estate   plan.      Because   we   are   living   longer   than   ever,   much   of “estate   planning”   has   become   late   life   planning.      Without   the   proper   documents,   instructions,   and   mechanisms   in   place,   your   retirement   and later   life   care   may   be   in   jeopardy   and   your   legacy   at   risk.      At   Johnson   and   Johnson,   P.A.,   our   attorneys   have   a   wealth   of   expert   experience   and knowledge   in   all   manner   of   estate   planning   techniques,   but   we   also   offer   a   pragmatic   common   sense   approach   to   your   elder   care   needs,   wealth preservation and lifetime and death transfers.
PROBATE AND GUARDIANSHIP While   it   is   true   that   most   aspects   of   estate   planning   should   be   handled   outside   of   probate,   there   are   still   some   important   benefits   to   probate administration;   and   it   should   be   evaluated   and   considered   in   your   personalized   estate   plan.      Probate   provides   a   conclusive   bar   on   all   future   and potential   claims   against   an   estate   once   administration   is   concluded.      Furthermore,   it   provides   a   formal   judicial   setting   in   which   all   disputes relating   to   the   estate   can   be   resolved.      We   recognize   the   importance   of   probate   administration   when   it   is   necessary,   and   our   attorneys   are equipped    to    handle    the    sensitive    and    often    stressful    task    of    administering    a    probate    estate.        Our    firm    handles    all    types    of    probate administration,    i.e.,    formal    administration,    summary    administration,    ancillary    administration,    and    any    type    of    probate    related    litigation.      Furthermore,   our   attorneys   have   extensive   experience   handling   guardianship   matters,   both   for   minors   and   persons   of   diminished   capacity,   with compassion   and   expertise.      Should   you   or   a   loved   one   have   any   questions   regarding   the   probate   or   guardianship   process   in   Florida,   please contact us.
       BUSINESS AND CORPORATE LAW A   significant   portion   of   our   practice   is   devoted   to   general   corporate   and   tax   planning.      This   also   involves   other   business   entities   such   as   limited liability   companies,   S   corporations,   limited   partnerships   and   the   like.      Our   work   ranges   from   the   basic   incorporation   of   a   new   business,   annual minutes,    by-laws,    and    buy-sell    agreements,    through    sophisticated    transactions    such    as    Section    351    spin-offs,    corporate    reorganizations, corporate mergers and acquisitions, and liquidations. Our   tax   experience   and   specialization   provide   us   with   a   unique   insight   into   business   transactions.      We   are   able   to   provide   affordable,   tax- optimized representation to businesses and organizations throughout the State of Florida.
CIVIL LITIGATION, STATE AND FEDERAL Most   of   our   civil   litigation   is   in   the   federal   court   system   involving   Internal   Revenue   Service   controversies.      We   do,   however,   handle   Florida Department   of   Revenue   tax   matters,   and;      for   our   existing   clients,   we   handle   non-complex   business   and   civil   litigation.      As   a   general   rule,   we   do not accept most non-tax litigation cases from third parties who are not already pre-existing clients or affiliated with a client.
BANKRUPTCY/CREDITOR WORK-OUTS The   majority   of   our   bankruptcy   work   is   Internal   Revenue   Service   related.      Keith   H.   Johnson,   Esquire   handled   bankruptcy   matters   while   an Internal   Revenue   Service   attorney   with   Office   of   Chief   Counsel,   and   was   also   appointed   Special   U.S.   Attorney   assigned   to   the   Department   of Justice   to   handle   tax   matters   on   its   behalf   in   the   Bankruptcy   Court   for   the   Middle   Judicial   District   of   Florida,   Jacksonville   Division.      Through unique   insider   experience,   the   firm   has   acquired   a   certain   expertise   involving   the   dischargeability   of   taxes   through   bankruptcy.   Due   to   the firm’s   practice   involving   Internal   Revenue   Service,   our   attorneys   and   staff   have   acquired   a   vast   knowledge   and   expertise   dealing   with   general creditor    matters;    and    they    are    more    than    equipped    to    handle    all    forms    of    bankruptcies,    including    Chapter    7    liquidations,    Chapter    13 reorganizations, and even Chapter 11 reorganizations for higher income individuals and small businesses. The   firm   also   handles   general   creditor   work-out   matters   both   for   individual   and   small   businesses.      When   an   operating   business   fails   or   is   in trouble,   there   are   usually   significant   creditor   problems,   which   must   be   expertly   navigated   and   evaluated   to   maximize   the   protection   and preservation of what wealth may remain.
TAX RETURN PREPARATION As   a   part   of   our   general   tax   practice,   the   firm   prepares   a   substantial   number   of   personal,   estate,   fiduciary,   and   business   entity   tax   returns   each year.      These   range   from   the   very   simple   to   the   extremely   complex.      Our   attorneys,   CPAs,   and   in-house   staff   routinely   prepare   the   necessary returns   for   persons   or   businesses   who   have   not   filed   returns   for   multiple   years,   for   those   persons   who   feel   as   through   a   special   expertise   or   a high level of competence is required, and for those clients who prefer both their legal and tax services be handled by one firm.  
Internal Revenue Service Initial Audit Internal Revenue Service Appeals United States Tax Court Litigation Federal District Court Litigation Bankruptcy Court Litigation Internal Revenue Service Collection Criminal Tax
In   Internal   Revenue   Service   collection   cases,   we   handle   all   phases   including   Installment   Payment   Agreements,   penalty   abatement   requests, uncollectible   status,   Offer-in-Compromise,   Innocent   Spouse   Relief,   and   tax-related   bankruptcies.      We   also   handle   all   phases   of   criminal   tax matters involving Title 26, Title 18 and Title 31 offenses.
