What Does Tax Law Cover

Taxes and the laws that surround them are a little tricky if you aren’t versed in them. Tax laws differ by state and are also changed and updated regularly which means it can be hard to keep up. Thankfully the attorneys at Mestayer & Associates have years of experience and can help you navigate any tax law related situation in Mississippi.


Tax Law is part of public law and is the set of rules and regulations that dictate how different levels of government (federal, state and local) calculate the taxes that are owed. These taxes might be owed by a business or by an individual for a variety of reasons. Because tax law is complicated and often involves large sums of money, it is best to have an attorney who is well versed in tax law. That attorney would be a tax attorney. Tax attorneys are specially trained in tax laws and are well versed in all things taxes. That means they will be able to help make sure everything is done by the book and handled correctly.


Not every tax situation requires a tax attorney. Some of them might simply require a certified accountant. You will need a tax attorney if there is a legal matter or an issue surrounding the taxes. Not sure? Check with your accountant or a tax attorney to find out.


Tax laws are something that affect individuals, families, organizations and businesses. Tax laws are enforced by an exponentially large amount of government entities, because of this it means that tax law will come into play in a lot of situations. Some of the situations where a tax attorney may be required are when dealing with:

  • Corporate Taxes
  • State and Local Taxes
  • International Taxes
  • Estate Taxes
  • Income Taxes
  • Tax Exempt Organizations
  • Social Security Taxes
  • Property Taxes


Some of the other times you might need legal consultation from a tax attorney are when starting a new business or handling legal matters that involve income, taxation, estates or the IRS. We’ve talked about both those situations more in our piece on When You Need a Tax Lawyer.
