Professional Experience:

Matthew Boch has been practicing in state and local taxes and incentives for over a decade. He began his practice with the SALT group of an international law firm in Chicago, where he became a partner. He relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas in 2015 and became a member of Dover Dixon Horne.

Practice Focus:

Matt represents taxpayers at all stages of tax controversies, from audits to appellate litigation, as well as providing planning and compliance advice. He focuses his practice both on Arkansas and multistate tax issues. In Arkansas, Matthew and his colleagues at Dover Dixon Horne are recognized for the depth and expertise of their tax practice, and they routinely advise and represent Fortune 500 companies as well as local businesses regarding Arkansas income tax matters, sales tax concerns, and other tax and incentive issues. On a multistate basis, clients rely on Matt to provide nexus advice and guidance, address tax positions and evaluate risks across multiple states, and advocate on their behalf before tax administrators. (Matthew continues to advise and represent taxpayers facing Illinois and Chicago tax issues in particular given his experience in those jurisdictions.)

Matt also represents clients considering economic development incentives, offering advice and advocacy throughout the process: from planning and negotiation, though compliance and reporting, and regarding clawbacks or other disputes should they arise.
