Juliya L. Ismailov is an associate in the Tax, Trusts & Estates Department. Juliya focuses her practice in the areas of federal and state income and estate tax planning. Juliya works closely with accountants and financial advisors to help businesses with multi-state operations come into past and prospective compliance with income and sales taxes across the country. In addition, Juliya helps business clients resolve audits involving trust fund taxes, such as sales and payroll taxes, including implementing collection alternatives by navigating federal and state tax procedures.

The other half of her practice involves complex estate planning and administration for individuals and their families over multiple generations: (a) from the early phases of defining strategy and executing estate planning documents; forming businesses; and setting up gifting and insurance trusts; (b) to the mid-stages of updating estate plans as tax laws change and family circumstances evolve, businesses grow, and trusts need to merge, change situs or terms; and, finally, (c) to the end-stages of probating wills; funding testamentary trusts; preparing and filing federal and state estate tax returns; counseling fiduciaries regarding their duties; and representing the interests of estates, executors, trustees and beneficiaries in estate and trust disputes.

Juliya also frequently sets up and advises private foundations and operating charities regarding the IRS tax exemption application process and ongoing compliance with federal and state requirements.

Juliya earned her Tax LL.M. from New York University in 2017, JD from Rutgers Law School-Newark in 2011 and B.A. in Economics and Russian Literature from Yale University in 2007. After college Juliya worked at a venture capital firm before enrolling at Rutgers Law on a full-tuition scholarship in memory of Elizabeth Benjamin. Juliya served as the Managing Editor of the Rutgers Computer & Technology Law Journal, and clerked for the NY Attorney General (NYC) and US Attorney (DC). After law school, Juliya clerked on the NJ Appellate Division for the Honorable Judge Edith K. Payne.

Juliya frequently publishes articles and presents on tax topics with a current focus on post-Wayfair nexus and residency planning.
