If you are involved in a dispute with a tax authority, you need an experienced attorney to protect your interests. The consequences can be serious, including fines, penalties or even jail-time. You want a lawyer with the experience, skills, and knowledge to recognize all the potential issues, a lawyer who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.
We represent individuals and businesses involved in litigation with local, state, or federal tax authorities. We have handled tax claims in state and federal court, as well as the U.S. Tax Court.
In civil tax matters, our involvement often begins when you are contacted by the Internal Revenue Service. Once you have received an examination letter, you may be subject to a tax audit. We will protect your interests throughout the audit and will review the findings of the Service, filing for an administrative review before the tax agency or taking your claim to court, if necessary, to protect your interests. We will work with you to determine whether it is in your best interests to appeal before you pay any new tax assessed or whether you should pay the tax and then seek a refund in federal district court or in the Court of Federal Claims.
