Our Tax Attorney Services
Tax Collection Representation and Resolution
Dealing with the IRS and state tax authorities can be stressful, confusing, and time consuming. If you are burdened by excessive tax debt, the expert taxpayer advocates at Tax Law Offices will work to secure a manageable resolution for you. Because taxes can legally expire after going long enough without being collected, the government does everything it can to enforce collections before that happens. Several possible outcomes of a resolution include installment agreements, partial-pay installment agreements, and currently not collectible status. Installment agreements consist of the taxpayer paying off all tax liability before the collection statute expires; this may provide more time for paying off the debt. Partial-pay installment agreements can be reached if it is demonstrated that the taxpayer cannot afford to pay off their entire tax liability but can make smaller payments until the statute expires. Currently not collectible status is granted when it is determined that there is no way for the taxpayer to repay any of their back taxes.
Whatever your tax liability situation is, you can count on Tax Law Offices to alleviate your troubles and put you on the track to financial stability. We will review your case and determine the best course of action based on your circumstances. Possible outcomes could be bankruptcy or an IRS settlement to reduce tax liability.
Tax Audit Representation
We advocate on the behalf of taxpayers who have been contacted for an IRS audit, as well as tax preparers and CPAs whose clients are being audited. In the former case, it is extremely important to work with an attorney who understands what the auditor can and can’t do. Individuals undergoing an audit without representation may face sensitive questions that could prove harmful to their case if answered truthfully, expose them to federal criminal charges if answered untruthfully, or lead to a perception of uncooperativeness if the taxpayer refuses to answer. The legal experts at Tax Law Offices can represent you during your audit to ensure that your rights are protected and your legal arguments are defended.
CPAs and other taxation professionals who prepare tax returns should never try to represent one of their clients in an audit. This can lead to a conflict of interests because the IRS can actually have you testify against your client. Protect the relationship with your clients by referring a professional criminal tax lawyer to represent them in their audits.
Representation for IRS Investigations
If you have been accused of tax evasion, intentional failure to file, medicaid mortgage, or tax preparer fraud, you must take action immediately. The consequences are severe and can come without warning. You may be subjected to a surprise visit at your home by up to 16 CID agents sent to seize your records. Convictions can result in you serving prison time and the IRS placing a lien or foreclosure on your home. Don’t allow yourself and your family to be put in this position.
The legal team at Tax Law Offices will aggressively defend your case. We will immediately stop all contact with the IRS, handle all summons, and work to keep you out of custody. We will work to prevent an indictment from the Department of Treasury, represent you in the U.S. District Court, and defend you with full constitutional due process protections. Investigations do not go away on their own, and should be taken very seriously. Trust our legal expertise to provide you with the best defense available.
