Tax Audit Defense

If the IRS has audited you, and you disagree with the auditor’s decision, you have the option to appeal. In this type of situation, it is vital to have an experienced tax attorney on your side. A tax attorney can represent you in tax court and can help you negotiate a settlement with the IRS. This will ultimately benefit you or your business because a tax attorney can help you reduce your liabilities.

Offer In Compromise

If you or your business are facing financial difficulties, you might also have a hard time paying taxes. With an offer in compromise, your business might be able to handle overwhelming tax debt. An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. The IRS will consider various factors when determining if you qualify for an offer in compromise. They will look at your ability to pay, income, expenses, and asset equity. An experienced tax lawyer can help you determine if you qualify and can help you through the process.

Installment Agreements

If you owe tax debt, you might be able to negotiate an installment agreement with the IRS. An agreement will let you pay off your debt in monthly installments, with up to a ten percent in interests applied to each year. An experienced attorney can help you lower your interest rates and mitigate other penalties you might face. An attorney can also help you negotiate an installment agreement that works for you.

Penalty Abatement

If you or your business have fallen behind on your taxes, you might be facing serious penalties from the IRS. Thankfully, an experienced attorney can help you mitigate your tax penalties through a “reasonable cause” waiver, a first-time penalty abatement waiver, or statutory exceptions. A tax lawyer can fight to help you get your penalties reduced.

Property Tax

If you think that you are paying more property taxes than needed, you need an experienced tax attorney. Trying to resolve this issue on your own won’t be easy. An attorney can help you determine your property’s value so that you can pay less in taxes. They can compare your property to your neighbors, discover errors in your property cards, or determine if your property has qualities that impact the value of your home.

Tax Planning

Taxes can be overwhelming and complicated. For such reasons, having an experienced attorney helping you with tax planning can be beneficial for individuals and businesses alike. A tax attorney is familiar with tax laws and penalties, so they can offer tax planning services to help you anticipate and deal with tax issues before they become a serious problem for you or your company.
