Matthew Morris focuses his practice on corporate and individual tax controversies, federal, state and international tax planning, estate planning, and probate administration. He represents individuals, fiduciaries, corporations, and other business entities before the IRS and the Massachusetts DOR in a broad range of tax matters. When necessary, Matthew litigates controversies before federal and Massachusetts courts, including the Supreme Judicial Court.
Matthew routinely assists business and individual “non-filers” and “under-reporters” to comply with their federal and state tax responsibilities. He represents businesses and individuals in federal and state tax audits and Massachusetts wage and hour investigations, prepares requests for IRS Private Letter Rulings, and petitions the IRS for innocent spouse relief on behalf of aggrieved taxpayers. Matthew is frequently retained by foreign nationals, dual nationals, and expatriate U.S. citizens because of his expertise with the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program and Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures.
Matthew has been published in Tax Notes, State Tax Notes, and International Tax Journal and currently serves as an instructor in State and Local Taxation for the Master of Science in Taxation program at Northeastern University.
