Confidential Taxpayer v. Franchise Tax Board
$1 Million
A taxpayer found itself in trouble with the Franchise Tax Board for failing to make a proper accounting of taxable income. The dispute hinged upon the interpretation of two tax provisions. The taxpayer had been represented by a prominent tax firm, which was unsuccessful in resolving the dispute with the Franchise Tax Board. The taxpayer filed an appeal of the Franchise Tax Board's decision and set a hearing before the State Board of Equalization. Klein & Wilson received a four-to-one vote in favor of its client, saving the client over $1 million in taxes.
