Living with the shadow of an IRS criminal investigation looming over you can feel overwhelming and intimidating. If you are found guilty of violating tax law, the consequences can be severe. Tax liability does not go away on their own, but often people are confused about what to do or who they can turn to. An attorney who specializes in tax law can make the difference between imprisonment and penalties, or freedom and financial stability. You only get one chance to defend yourself against a tax audit, indictment, or criminal trial. It is absolutely imperative that you secure adequate legal representation for your case.

If you are exposed to potential IRS tax liability over $100,000, you simply will not get the best result on your own. You need more than the readily-available “tax-resolution expert”. You need someone that handles large-dollar cases. You need someone that handles complex problems. Your attorney must also understand business law, accounting, real estate law, bankruptcy, foreclosures, and even divorce law.

To maximize the chance of a positive outcome, you must find an attorney who has extensive training and experience in the highly specialized field of tax law. They must have formal training in criminal tax statutes, U.S. sentencing guidelines, federal rules of evidence, and rules of the local U.S. district courts.

Beyond that, your attorney must understand IRS’s procedures manuals. These procedures define how IRS’s exam, collection, and criminal agents can follow your case. Your representative’s knowledge of IRS tax procedure is critical to your best resolution.

Another critical factor in selecting an attorney is accessibility. Your attorney should return your calls.
