Experienced Strategies For
Winning Tax Controversies, Innovative Business Structuring And Estate Planning

Tax Collectors Have Teeth. I Help You Bite Back.

​​Past-due taxes left ignored can turn into bank levies and property seizures. Delinquent taxes, tax collections, tax liens, audits, employee and independent contractor issues and payroll taxes can easily become a swirling mass of unending stress and mounting debt. Wherever you are in the course of tax-related drama, stop and text me. Working with an experienced tax attorney can provide a road map for relief in terms of negotiation, exploring offers in compromise, installment agreements and litigation in the Tax Court of New Jersey, United States Tax Court or the United States Court of Federal Claims.

I am licensed to practice in state and federal courts including Tax Court of New Jersey, United States Tax Court and the United States Court of Federal Claims. Since 1976, I have helped clients from around the U.S., as well as multinational clients, win their battles against the taxation giants.

Protect It All With A Solid Estate Plan

What Clients Have To Say

I consulted with Mr. Cappuccio a number of times over the years about issues regarding personal tax, retirement accounts, LLC and more. His advice was always sound, reflected knowledge of the law and care about my issues. He advised me against proceeding with a particular structure even though he could have profited from setting it up for me.


Ron helped my family with a New Jersey State Tax Audit. He was able to settle the case for almost half of the state’s audit. This was a seven-figure audit that lasted for over 5 years. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He was also very patient with all parties involved to get the case settled in a fair manner. The state is not exactly forthcoming and there seemed to be no urgency on their part. He was awesome at getting them to engage. Also, his assistant Trish was excellent and was fast to respond and help in any way possible. I would highly recommend Ron and his staff to anyone looking for an honest and hardworking firm.


Being out of the US, I normally get crass responses on some of my questions. Ronald answered me with a lot of respect. That should mean a lot to you. It does to me. A+
