Competent Authority Cases

Tax Lawyers in Miami & Washington DC

The Competent Authority process is designed to help taxpayers like you avoid, or at least minimize, international double taxation, and to provide other forms of assistance to U.S. and foreign taxpayers in an international context. Many taxpayers are unfamiliar with the Competent Authority mechanism and do not understand on a practical level how the process works or how taxpayers can benefit from it.
