Tax Resolution Services

Tax Audit Representation

Most people don't understand their rights when being audited by the IRS or any other state or local tax authority. Almost intuitively, they disclose substantially more information than they are required to and are often times rewarded with a tax bill much higher than they originally anticipated. 

 

Few tax professionals are truly skilled in negotiation and adversarial representation. Our approach is to analyze all of the facts, determine the relevant legal issues, and provide an evaluation of every case within a short period of time. Once retained, we work very closely with our clients to diligently resolve the matter.

Streamline Installment Plan Representation

DO NOT be fooled by what you hear on the radio. The IRS  Fresh Start Initiative does not obligate the IRS to approve installment payment plans. In fact, few practitioners are skilled in negotiating Partial Payment Installment Agreements (PPIAs) - let alone seeing them through to appeal. We help you do the following:

  • Make an offer the IRS will process and accept

  • Prepare the Collection Information Statement

  • Prove your finances

  • Revise the agreement

Penalty Abatement

Penalty Abatement is possible. The key is utilizing the facts in way that the tax authorities understand, and substantiating that position with a sound, convincing theory. Yes, you do need a Tax Attorney that can determine the likelihood of getting a penalty removed and, if possible, represent you before the tax authorities in negotiating a settlement. Yes, you need a tax attorney that knows the case law, the rationale behind the holdings, and how to use your unique facts to develop a solid legal argument. 

 

Offer-In-Compromise (OIC)

An offer-in-compromise (OIC) is an arrangement between taxing authorities and an indebted taxpayer that settles the taxpayer's debts for less than the full amount owed. If you are unable to pay your full tax debt, an offer-in-compromise may be a legitimate option for you. However, the IRS does not have to accept an offer-in-compromise if they deem the offer unacceptable. The IRS generally looks at the following facts when deciding whether to approve an offer:

  • Ability to pay your tax debts in full

  • Income

  • Expenses

  • Value of your assets

The IRS is not quick to accept an offer-in-compromise. If you do not address your tax issues immediately, the IRS has the right to place a tax lien on your assets or seize your income through levies or wage garnishments. As such, it is crucial that you obtain experienced, competent representation to ensure your offer is accepted. 

Other Tax Representation Solutions:

  • Non-filing

  • Innocent Spouse Relief

  • Tax Seizures (lien, levee, and wage garnishment relief)

  • Payroll Tax

  • Form 1099 Tax Preparation

As a solo attorney, I provide representation comparable to that of a major law firm without the overhead cost. This means you work directly with me - not a junior associate juggling your case.
