King & Spalding’s tax attorneys have broad experience in addressing tax issues that arise in the healthcare industry. We regularly assist in the formation and application for tax-exempt status of new tax-exempt healthcare organizations. We also advise established tax-exempt organizations regarding compliance with laws governing tax-exempt organizations, including the unrelated business taxable income (UBTI) issues; intermediate sanctions; and the requirements of Internal Revenue Code Section 501(r), recently enacted as part of the health reform legislation. We advise taxable and tax-exempt healthcare organizations with respect to the tax consequences of mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and significant contracts. We also represent tax-exempt healthcare organizations before the IRS in connection with audits and controversies.


A number of our tax lawyers have served in high level positions at the U.S. Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service. In addition, King & Spalding’s tax attorneys have been recognized by:
