Issue Research

Ashland conducts continuous research nationwide with the goal of uncovering specific tax positions reflecting the potential to generate refunds on previously paid taxes and significantly impact ongoing corporate tax liability.

Issue Development

Development of state income and franchise tax issues plays a key role in the process of offering clients creative tax reduction strategies. Typically, Ashland develops a new position and partners with a selected client to propose the new strategy to the state taxing authority. Ashland’s teams, led by former senior level state auditors and state policy personnel, are uniquely positioned because of their prior experience to formulate and present these new positions. Upon approval by a state taxing authority, Ashland Group presents the accepted positions to other clients and prospective clients.

Ashland’s research, plus deeply qualified former state auditors with the experience of conducting reviews of thousands of companies, has allowed us to compile a rich database of refund opportunities available for our clients.
