Tax laws and regulations are so complicated and ever-changing that most people don’t want anything to do with them.
Not Nathan Vinson. Nathan is constantly tackling federal and state tax challenges. Nathan works with business owners and executives, conducting tax analysis of mergers and acquisitions to determine the most efficient tax structures of transactions and operational and employment tax issues, just to name a few. Along with tax advice, Nathan advises clients in business and transactional matters and drafts necessary transactional, operational, and corporate governance documents, depending on the client’s needs.
Nathan also hears from clients who have an unexpected tax bill that they don’t believe is correct or a tax bill they need help getting resolved. With more than seven years of experience in dealing and negotiating with the IRS and state and local tax authorities, Nathan is here to help. He also works with individuals on tax planning in connection with estate planning, and provides tax advice for individuals looking to sell or acquire assets. “Good tax planning takes time, but it is extremely important and will be vital to your heirs as they receive assets from your estate,” Nathan says. Good estate planning compliments Nathan’s probate practice, in which many tax issues and challenges can also arise.
Nathan has worked as an attorney in the tax law field since 2010. Having a Masters of Business Administration, a law degree and an LL.M. are a great background for his work, Nathan says. “When I meet with business owners, it helps to have the thorough understanding of business that I gained while earning my M.B.A.,” Nathan says. “My LL.M. in taxation prepared me well for working on tax matters, and I’m very glad I took the time for that extra level of education. I use things I learned during that time every day in my work.”
Outside of work, Nathan enjoys playing rock music and regularly keeps up on his guitar-playing. Nathan is married and has two children. “My boys definitely make my ‘music time’ a little more challenging to get to, but the time I get to spend with them and watching them grow up makes up for well more than the difference.” He is happy to be home in the Bluegrass State, raising a family in the land that nurtured him.
“Kentucky is home, and I’m happy to be here,” Nathan says. “I’m very pleased to be working for such a well-respected law firm that encourages attorneys to become involved in the community and promotes the economic health of the entire community.”
