AUDIT REPRESENTATION

image43

We take the stress away from dealing with the IRS and represent the client in audits. The IRS routinely will conduct the audit from our offices and the client has minimal interaction with the IRS.

OFFER IN COMPROMISE

image44

We have a high percentage rate of successful Offers with the IRS, simply because we will not submit an Offer, if we do not believe the client can qualify.  In Attorney Taylor's time with the IRS District Counsel Office, the office provided final approval of Offers, therefore, she is very familiar with the process and qualifications.

COLLECTION REPRESENTATION

IRS Blues? When the IRS or FTB comes knocking on your door, it can be quite frightening.  We take the stress away from dealing with the very aggressive Revenue Officers.  The key to success is timely response, completing documentation and developing a plan that the taxing authorities can feel comfortable accepting.

TAXCONTROVERSIES AND LITIGATION

As a trial attorney for the IRS, Attorney Taylor litigated numerous cases defending the IRS's position.  Now in her defense practice against the IRS and State, she applies that knowledge to protect her client's interests.

EMPLOYMENT TAX/TRUST FUND PENALTIES

Unfortunately, business clients often get behind in payroll tax liabilities.  The taxing authorities will then seek to assess the responsible party personally. We routinely assist client in coming up with strategies to resolve the delinquent tax liabilities and defend against the trust fund assessment.

TAX LIENS AND LEVIES

If tax liabilities have not been resolved, the IRS and State will often levy upon funds of the taxpayer.  This levy can be on wages, bank accounts, and accounts receivables. Additionally, they will file a lien on county records.  This lien will effect your credit and prevent disposal of assets.  We assist the taxpayer in addressing these liens and levies and ultimately resolving the collections issues.
