Roger Cukras focuses his practice on state and local taxation with a particular emphasis on New York State, New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut and California. Roger has assisted many businesses with state and local audits and has a respected reputation with state and local tax authorities. While most of the audit issues he handles are resolved with state and local tax authorities, he has instituted formal proceedings before tax tribunal administrative bodies and he has challenged tax assessments in state courts.

Roger has represented Global Crossing and MCI in conjunction with the state and local tax claims made in their bankruptcy proceedings. He also represents Fortune 500 companies, including manufacturers, transportation companies, telecommunications companies and airlines. Roger has assisted companies seeking tax benefits for expanding or relocating in New York and New Jersey. These benefits can be substantial and include sales tax exemptions, real property tax abatements and refundable corporate income tax credits.

Prior to joining Ingram, Roger was a partner at Shea& Gould where he led the tax department.  He has been a frequent lecturer at NYU’s Annual State and Local Taxation program, appearing as a panel member for “Ask the Experts Anything.” This NYU program is one of the most widely attended state and local forums in the country.
