Insurance Tax Controversy
Sidley’s Insurance Tax Controversy practice represents clients in audits, administrative appeals and in litigation of federal and state tax controversies of significant interest to the insurance industry. Our regular insurance tax clients include major life and property-casualty insurance companies and insurance industry trade associations. We also represent captive insurers, banks, utilities, national retailers, manufacturing companies and not-for-profit organizations with respect to insurance tax issues.
Although we are successful in helping clients obtain favorable administrative disposition of tax controversies in many of the cases we handle, we have also had great success in litigating tax cases for clients when satisfactory settlement at the administrative level proved to be unattainable, or when clients contacted us after exhausting all administrative options.
