as a senior attorney in the Office of Chief Counsel for the U.S. Treasury.

and trusts, in resolving their disputes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and
the Department of Revenue.
In tax controversy work, Ms. Forsberg represents clients at the administrative audit level,
in the Appeals Division and in the courts, including the U.S. Tax Court.
She has an accounting background, and understands complicated issues relating to
accounting methods and issues (including those for trusts) and financial statements.

with business and real estate valuation issues, and technical arguments regarding
estate tax law.

inventory issues, accumulated earnings and others. She has also worked on cases with many issues
relating to individuals including proper deductions, bad debt losses, ownership of
