As a business owner or individual, interacting with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can be intimidating. Letters from the IRS often contain dense language and terms the average person cannot easily define, and in many cases, responding often means finding, filling out, and sending various forms back to the IRS. At best, it can be tedious. More often, it is uncomfortable and difficult for the individual, especially when he or she is facing an audit or a potential tax levy, lien, or wage garnishment.
To make this process easier for yourself, work with an experienced IRS tax lawyer. After reviewing your case, your lawyer might be able to determine options you did not initially realize you had. For example, you could be eligible for the IRS’ Fresh Start program or you could potentially settle your tax debt for less money than you actually owe. In any case involving an IRS dispute, the worst thing you can do is sit back and do nothing. This is especially true when you are facing a criminal charge, such as tax evasion or tax fraud. Choosing not to respond to the IRS and hoping your problem will just fade away will only make things worse for you, putting you at risk of facing large fines and potentially losing property.
Cases Our Team Handles
Tax lawyers help their clients handle many different IRS issues. These include but are not limited to:
A tax lawyer is an advocate for his or her client. He or she can act as a liaison between the client and the IRS, negotiating on the client’s behalf. When the client has an accountant, his or her lawyer and accountant can work together to determine the ideal resolution for the client’s tax issue.
When a client faces an IRS audit, his or her lawyer can ensure that his or her rights are protected. After a ruling in tax court that the client feels was made in error, a tax lawyer can help him or her appeal the decision to potentially have the ruling overturned in the client’s favor.
