A firm with both political and technical tax expertise.
In 2001, relying on their decades of government experience, Capitol Tax Partners’ founders sought to create a tax firm that could provide clients with both political and technical tax expertise, analysis, and solutions. Since its inception, the firm has been recognized as one of Washington’s top government relations and tax policy firms and our partners have received numerous accolades, including being recognized by U.S. News and World Report’s rankings of “Best Law Firms.” We are pleased that we have consistently had one of the highest client retention rates in the business, including representation of multiple clients for a decade or more.
The firm’s co-founder, Jon Talisman, has said that the firm is built upon great people with a unique combination of judgment and experience, and a simple credo: “We have always tried to provide our clients with an honest appraisal of what’s likely to happen on the Hill and then provide them our best technical and political advice on how to make what they want happen.”
The firm’s partners have a wealth of experience throughout all levels of government, including Assistant Secretary of Tax Policy for the Treasury Department, Treasury Tax Legislative Counsel, Senate Finance Committee Chief Tax Counsel, House Ways and Means Committee Tax Counsel, Joint Tax Committee Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Legislation Counsel, and Legislative Director. This bipartisan team of accomplished former government officials can help clients develop and carry out the strategy necessary to accomplish a client’s goals.
