At Cook & Cook, we recognize that federal, state, & local tax issues arise in everyday transactions that often involve non-tax issues, in particular: business, real estate, & estate planning.

We handle most aspects of business and personal transactions in which tax issues may arise, such as business formation (Arizona LLC, corporation, & partnership) and business dissolution, real estate and business sales and acquisitions, business succession planning (including transfer to family or sale), asset protection, Arizona probate and general estate planning (Arizona will & Arizona trust).

Although we prefer to avoid tax controversies with taxing authorities, we represent clients before those authorities when the need arises.
