Our firm represents clients in all phases of the Federal Tax Assessment and Collection Process for both Domestic and International Tax matters. We know that an important part of an attorney’s role is to educate the client. As your Tax Counsel, we take the time to explain the how tax audits are conducted, we identify your exposure and describe your position in the stage of the audit. We have found that when clients understand the process, it alleviates many of their concerns.
All audits are not the same. Clients need a skilled representative to speak directly with the auditor and to control the examination. Our goal is to reduce or eliminate the Federal tax assessments sought against our clients.
A key concept to remember…rights are deemed waived if not taken. The IRS has deadlines for bringing your matter under review to the next level. Whether your matter is before an Appeals Officer or the U.S. Tax Court, a failure to recognize these deadlines can eliminate recourse rights which would otherwise be available to you. The IRS recognizes the hazards of litigating a tax matter. When we take your tax controversy to court, the judge and the opposing party will be presented with the facts and the law in the most persuasive light.
Even after taxes are assessed, clients are often cash-strapped and unable to pay the balance sought by the government. In the process, the government can use many collection methods including liens, levies and wage garnishments to secure payment of a balance owed. Whether you are seeking an Installment Plan, Offer-in-Compromise or Collection Due Process Proceeding, we will utilize our expertise to work for the most beneficial plan that you qualify for.
Every day, taxpayers make important business and personal financial decisions that can affect their tax burden. The structure you choose for conducting your business and financing your operations can dramatically affect your tax obligations. Our firm provides domestic and international tax planning for individuals as well as corporate, partnership, trust and LLC clients. This includes tax disputes with taxing authorities and tax litigation. We can assist you if are planning a transaction that requires a Private Letter Ruling from the IRS or are in the midst of an examination that requires technical tax advice. Our goal is to ensure that our clients are well informed on the tax consequences of their decisions and are given the opportunity to consider alternate approaches aimed at reducing their tax burden.
