Washington National Tax Services

Experience matters

Deloitte’s Washington National Tax leaders offer first-hand insight into the many factors affecting taxation—from the tax policies that drive US tax legislation, to the technical nuances that may create compliance exposure and strategic opportunities.

Relevant. Responsive. Real.

The pace of global tax change hasn’t slowed the speed at which businesses are reaching new customers, developing new products and adopting new technologies and business models. In Deloitte’s Washington National Tax (WNT) office, we assemble the right team with the right balance of technical, business, and government experience to provide the specialized knowledge and insights our clients need to interpret and respond to those changes.

Our deep bench of skilled professionals consults on the tax and tax financial reporting aspects of nearly every type of transaction and has a long, successful history of collaborating with each other and our teams in the field. We assist clients throughout the transaction cycle—from negotiations right up to and including tax rulings and examinations.

Beyond specific engagements, our former high-ranking US Department of the Treasury (Treasury), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and state officials and congressional staff stay abreast of developments in Washington, state capitols, and the courts. We share insights through tax publications, of-the-moment conference calls, briefings, webcasts, and special events. WNT professionals are connected to and support the tax profession by serving on industry group committees, panels, and working groups and by teaching at leading tax programs nationwide.
