Biography

Tim Gustafson counsels clients on all aspects of state and local tax controversy, including audits, administrative appeals and litigation. He is extensively experienced on issues and matters before the California Franchise Tax Board and the California State Board of Equalization. Tim routinely advises financial institutions, technology service providers and retailers and manufacturers on sales and use, income and franchise taxes, and key related issues including apportionment, nexus, gross receipts, business and nonbusiness income, penalties, deductions and credits. For instance, he recently guided a multinational health care manufacturer to a successful resolution in a California protest case on multiple fronts (unitary combination, characterization of income issues, apportionment and credit utilization issues).

Before joining Sutherland, Tim worked as a tax associate at another Sacramento, California, law firm. His past experience also includes serving in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps at the Netherlands Law Center for three years.
