Anthony devotes his practice to handling complex, and often times delicate, tax issues that successful businesses and their owners face.   For well over a decade, he has counseled clients on income and estate tax issues both in the planning stage (before contact by the Internal Revenue Service) as well as in the controversy stage (after IRS contact).
