Charles E. Hodges II

Chuck Hodges focuses his practice on civil and criminal federal tax controversies and litigation and on the taxation of intellectual property. He has been involved in more than 125 cases against the IRS and state revenue agencies involving all areas of tax law in the U.S. Tax Court; U.S. Court of Federal Claims; U.S. District Courts in Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, and Arizona; as well as Court of Appeals for the Fifth, Sixth, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits.

As a tax litigator for almost 20 years, Chuck handles every stage of a tax controversy, including all administrative and judicial levels from examination through court proceedings, and all alternative dispute resolution options, including post-IRS appeals mediation. He has successfully recovered more than $1 million for clients from the IRS in reimbursement of attorneys' fees at the conclusion of clients' trial victory. He also has extensive experience dealing with tax issues involving other government agencies, including U.S. Customs & Border Protection, and the tax issues that arise from the importing of products into the United States.

Chuck has represented a broad range of taxpayers, including publicly traded companies, employee 401(k) and other types of retirement plans, large privately held companies, high net worth individuals and their family offices, estates, and tax-exempt organizations.
