Can you think of anything that strikes more fear into people more than receiving an Audit letter in the mail from the Internal Revenue Service? We know that unpredictable situations will occur in your life. Maybe you run a business and the money isn’t coming in on time. In addition, you may have become ill and there was no way you would have the time to pay your taxes. Unfortunately, the Internal Revenue Service will not turn a blind eye when it comes to your circumstances and they will find a way to get their payment from you. Tax audits can take time away from your business and family, with having to compile tons of records and paperwork validating each and every item reported on your tax return not to mention having to have a comprehensive understanding of tax law.

When it comes hiring us as your tax lawyer, not only do we attempt to prevent tax issues but to also save you as much money as possible by trying to work a deal with the IRS. If you’re looking to save as much money as you can, it is in your best interest to contact us and discuss your tax situation. While it’s never easy to talk about uncomfortable issues, it is extremely important that everything is disclosed up-front before we begin so you can avoid owing and paying a lot of money to the IRS.
