Wendy Bleiman has successfully represented clients—from individuals to multinational Fortune 500 corporations—in connection with federal, state and local tax controversies, predominantly by supervising audits and advocating at administrative-level appeals. Wendy's experience includes issues relating to Federal income taxes, state and local franchise and income taxes (including multi-state tax issues), California property taxes (including Prop. 13 reassessment issues) and sales taxes. As part of her controversy practice, Wendy has obtained private rulings, prepared offers in compromise, and assisted clients to qualify for "tax amnesty" and similar programs. In addition, Wendy advises nonprofit corporations in connection with obtaining and maintaining tax exempt status.
