IRS Dispute Resolution

 

IRS Representation Services Designed to Protect the Taxpayer

Tax audits can be costly and intrusive experiences. IRS and state tax agents are trained to look for unreported income, challenge and disallow deductions, question values reported, and look for ways to assess additional taxes, penalties and interest. Frequently, tax notices and audit assessments are either wrong or interpreted in favor of the government. Tax authorities also have the power to use levies, liens, garnishments and other tools to aggressively collect assessed taxes.

Having a team of experienced professionals to explain your options and available protections is critical if you wind up with an audit or assessment. Various mechanisms exist under the law to level the playing field in tax disputes, including Appeals, Taxpayer Advocate Services, and Tax Court. Even when tax has been validly assessed options remain, including Installment Agreements, Innocent Spouse Relief and Offers-In-Compromise. Our team of CPAs has been protecting clients from unfair treatment by IRS and other tax authorities for decades.
