Our team will evaluate the facts and circumstances that resulted in the missed election and whether Section 9100 provides relief, and we will draft and request the relief.  

Client success story

The right tools for avoiding a tax payment. 

A north Texas oil tool manufacturer hired Weaver after a state audit led to an assessment for over $250,000 due in taxes. Weaver’s state and local tax team worked closely with the company to develop an understanding of the business and its manufacturing process. The team shared this information with the auditor during tours of the manufacturing facility and follow-up meetings. Through Weaver’s efforts, the company received a refund of approximately $20,000, for a total benefit of $270,000. Receiving a tax refund made the company less likely to face similar audits in the future.
