A rise in investigations by New York's Attorney General and the Department of Taxation and Finance should give New York art galleries pause. Herrick's partners Vic Rocco [Investigations and White Collar Defense], Jason Kleinman [Tax] and Frank Lord [Art] led a lively roundtable discussion about key issues art industry executives need to be aware of.

Discussion topics included:

  • How to update shipping practices to protect yourself from unforeseen tax consequences,
  • How to prepare and defend yourself in an audit,
  • Exposure when acting as an intermediary for a like-kind exchange,
  • Other strategies for limiting tax liability.
