Tax Litigation Attorneys Taking On the IRS
What is Federal Tax Litigation?
Federal tax litigation is the process of resolving tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service, focused on income and business taxes filed with the IRS. Tax litigation can involve both civil and criminal tax matters. Unlike other methods of tax relief, federal tax litigation takes your case to court.
Typically, federal tax litigation is a last option for those who have received a deficiency notice or 90-day notice that the IRS expects payment for unpaid or underpaid taxes within 90 days. Other federal tax litigation claims may be related to refunds or complex and unusual interpretations of tax regulations that require litigation to mitigate tax liabilities.
Our tax litigation attorneys bring a combination of experience in both criminal and civil tax matters at the federal and state levels to give our clients a comprehensive defense against tax litigation. We have extensive experience litigating federal tax claims for our clients.
Tax litigation often begins with an audit where the IRS alleges you have committed civil tax fraud or criminal tax crimes. Some tax matters can be resolved administratively but some tax cases cannot be resolved through dealing directly with the IRS. Instead, taking the tax controversy to court to gain the best outcome for clients may be the best path forward in certain cases.
Our experienced tax litigation attorneys have extensive experience in aggressive representation in tax controversies in court for our clients after other methods of resolution have failed to produce the best outcomes for our clients.
We act as advocates for our clients to seek the best outcomes for our clients in their unique situations.
