We can advise on unrelated business taxable income, joint ventures between nonprofits and for profit businesses, low-profit limited liability companies (LC3). We can also advise on charitable giving, charitable substantiation for nonprofits, charitable solicitation licenses and obtaining sales tax exemptions.

Tax Appeals

At Dawda Mann, we understand that real property taxes constitute a significant expense for owners. We also understand that real property taxes are a necessary source of revenue for government. All taxation, however, must be fair and within the boundaries of the law. Our clients count on us to assist whenever a property has been excessively and/or unlawfully assessed. To that end, Dawda Mann will aggressively represent you with any disputes you have with your local or state taxing authority in order to make sure that your property taxes are fairly and correctly assessed.
