Hiring a Tax Attorney

From tax questions before you file this year's return, to legal issues that can arise if you haven't filed your taxes in some time, if you have a legal concern related to taxes and would like to learn more about your rights and your options, one of the first steps you should take is to contact an experienced Tax Attorney in your area. There are few legal topics more complex than tax law, and many potential tax-related problems -- including tax penalties, audits, and tax fraud charges -- can be intimidating and can bring serious financial consequences. Whatever your tax-related legal issue, having an experienced attorney on your side can help ensure that your personal and financial interests are protected to the fullest extent possible.

How a Tax Attorney Can Help

At your first meeting, your attorney will gather facts and information from you, evaluate all aspects of your tax issue with you, identify your options, and explain what you can expect. If your tax issue requires that your attorney represent you in dealings with the IRS or in tax court, at every stage of your case your attorney will represent you zealously -- by gathering all necessary documents and evidence related to your tax issue, researching all pertinent issues, and working with tax agency officials -- all with the goal of protecting your legal rights and financial concerns, and ensuring the most favorable outcome for your situation.
