Tax Controversies

Tax disputes arise with or without careful planning. Filed tax returns can be audited and oftentimes disagreements ensue. Business operations with employees and sales taxable transactions may also create tax issues resulting in potential personal liability of the owners. Economic strains or reversals may lead to the underpayment of taxes, penalties and ultimately pressures from the collection agents of the taxing authorities.

Our Tax Controversy Practice Group assists individuals and businesses in resolving differences with federal and state tax authorities in audit, administrative appeals, litigation, and collection activity. While an understanding of the tax law is essential when the IRS or a state or local tax authority is conducting an audit or pursuing collection, an understanding of the process and a rapport with the government agents is also invaluable. Our clients have the benefit of our extensive experience in dealing with the various taxing authorities at all levels.
