Vaght Boutris LLP


Vaught & Boutris LLP specializes in handling the tax aspects of bankruptcy, tax matters that have been mishandled by other bankruptcy counsel, and situations in which the government has refused to release tax liens and continues to pursue collection.

Many lawyers and law firms handling bankruptcy cases neglect to or improperly advise their clients about the treatment of taxes in bankruptcy.  As a result, many of our bankruptcy cases are the result of referrals from other attorneys less familiar with the rules governing taxes in bankruptcy.  

We also work to resolve matters relating to the release of liens and collections.  In most such cases, we have achieved outcomes that are favorable to our clients.

Our highly regarded attorneys are well-versed in the intricacies of the rules for discharging taxes in bankruptcy and in minimizing tax consequences from short sales, loan modifications, and foreclosures. In fact, founding partner Basil Boutris frequently lectures to bankruptcy practitioners on these are related topics and is considered one of the experts in the field.

With law offices in Oakland and Walnut Creek, Vaught & Boutris LLP provides expert counsel and advice to clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Contra Costa County and Alameda County. We can assist in discharging taxes in bankruptcies and assessing tax implications from short sales, loan modifications, and foreclosures.
