Profile

Dan Eller assists clients with tax and business law issues in both transactions and controversies. His transactional practice emphasizes choice of entity and formation, mergers and acquisitions, real property development, foreign bank account and asset reporting, and tax-exempt entity formation, qualification and operation. On the controversy side, Dan has handled a wide variety of tax collection and controversy matters, both federally and at the state level in Oregon and Washington. He has litigated cases before both the United States Tax Court and the Oregon Tax Court, where he formerly clerked for the Hon. Henry C. Breithaupt.

Since the enactment of Oregon’s Corporate Activity Tax (“CAT”) in 2019, Dan has been at the forefront of the implementation of this new tax. Dan is a frequent speaker on the CAT. Additionally, with Alee Soleimanpour Dan has co-authored a number of articles on CAT developments, both from the Oregon Department of Revenue and the Oregon Legislature. For more on the CAT, please refer to those articles here. To be added to our email list of CAT updates, please contact Dan at [email protected].

Dan is an Adjunct Professor at Lewis and Clark Law School and an Adjunct Instructor in the School of Business Administration at Portland State University.
