Tax Resolution Services for Tax Relief

Tax Compliance Services
Our firm represents taxpayers who need IRS Representation and who do not want to deal directly with the the IRS on these issues: (1) Unfiled Tax Returns, (2) Employer/business Payroll Taxes, (3) Unpaid tax bills that can be made affordable with Installment Agreements (4) Offers in Compromise, and (5) other Tax Debt or potential tax debt issues like Audits and Innocent Spouse relief. You want and need an experienced tax professional with knowledge of the internal workings of IRS. You need a tax professional to quickly address and efficiently resolve your tax dispute with IRS, not an employee of an impersonal organization. You certainly want an attorney with whom you can have confidential, privileged and frank conversations about problems with your taxes. You CANNOT have these conversations with your CPA, bookkeeper, enrolled agent or other non-lawyer tax person because they could become witnesses against you. They should be the first to tell you this if they know.

Resolving Tax Controversies with the IRS Appeals Division
Most disputes with IRS are settled or compromised. If not, our firm can help you obtain the most favorable settlement possible at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Office of Appeals (Appeals). Appeals exists to facilitate negotiation and possible settlement of tax liabilities without having to go through an expensive trial. The stated mission of Appeals is to resolve tax controversies in a fair and impartial basis to both the IRS and the taxpayer, without litigation. IRM  Appeals handles proper and timely filings after the IRS agent examination is completed. It also handles timely appeals of collection actions such as liens, levies, seizures, or denial of installment agreements. The Office of Appeals can also handle appeals of collection due process hearings, offers in compromise, and some abatement claims. IRM

Tax Litigation before the US Tax Court
A tax professional’s goal in every tax controversy matter should be to resolve the tax dispute quickly and efficiently, at the earliest stage possible, and preferably, without litigation. A non-lawyer can only represent taxpayers through the agent examination level, but not beyond. Unfortunately, at the agent level, the IRS generally gets everything it claims. That means taxpayers sometimes lose when they resolve matters at the agent level because they have the right to dispute IRS positions. Taxpayers do not have to sign and agree with the IRS agent since they still have rights beyond the agent examination level. Sometimes, obtaining a successful result requires hiring an attorney to pursue due process rights of taxpayers, including litigating before the Tax Court if the case cannot be resolved at Appeals. In select cases, our firm can represent clients at the collection level on the following collection tax matters if the tax liability cannot be paid to the IRS:

  • ​Offers in Compromise
  • IRS Installment Agreements
  • Federal Tax Liens
  • Jeopardy Assessments
  • Federal Tax Levies
  • Tax Penalty Abatement
  • Innocent Spouse Relief
