Tax controversy is another specialty of the firm.
We frequently represent clients in tax audits referred to us by other professionals.

We review each situation on a case by case basis and determine the best course of action. In some cases that is an aggressive defense where we argue for a “no-change” result with regards to the subject returns.

In other cases the primary goal is to avoid or mitigate penalties.

The strategies employed in each scenario are very different and to gain an accurate assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the government’s case is critical in recommending and deploying the right strategy for the Taxpayer

In addition to audit defenses we can also assist with:

  • Installment payment plans
  • Offers in Compromise
  • Penalty abatements

In the majority of cases we will handle the entire engagement without the Taxpayer ever interacting with the IRS agent.

While we make no guarantees of success we have a strong track record in properly advising our clients as to the best strategy to pursue in regards to their particular situation.
