If you're confronted with an IRS or state taxing agency determination suggesting that your personal or business tax return was underreported or not filed, it's crucial to promptly find a clear path forward to minimize the negative impact of these circumstances. At Tax Workout Group, we develop personalized and innovative solutions with one goal in mind — the favorable resolution of tax controversy claims. Our Tax Controversy Group effectively represents clients in disputes involving income tax, employment tax, sales or use tax, excise taxes, or property taxes, whether it pertains to an individual, business, trust, or estate. We exhaust all options to resolve tax controversy cases during administrative proceedings when possible, or through federal/state civil tax litigation when required. In cases where the tax claim(s) cannot be disputed initially, our attorneys relentlessly negotiate and pursue compromise for reduced penalties or feasible payment plans with the taxing agency’s collection division.
We represent taxpayers facing deficiency, refund, and collection defense matters before the IRS Examination (IRS audit), as well as before the Appeals and Collection Divisions of the IRS and state tax agencies. We possess extensive experience in handling these tax disputes, and our team excels in trial, negotiation, and procedural aspects. Our knowledgeable professionals are well-versed in substantive tax laws and are skilled at interfacing with Revenue Agents, developing audit defense strategies, and pursuing administrative appeals. With The Tax Workout Group, you can count on being represented by a team that is competent and understands the complexities of your situation.
Our Tax Controversy Group provides the following legal services:
Our firm's tax controversy attorneys and professionals consist of former representatives from the IRS and taxing agencies, holding advanced LLM degrees in taxation and possessing strong accounting backgrounds. They are here to assist you with various aspects of your case, including tax audits, appeals, collection matters, criminal enforcement, or tax litigation. When litigating tax disputes, taxpayers have three options: the Tax Court, the federal district court, or the Court of Federal Claims. Factors that may influence the choice of the appropriate forum for your case include your willingness or ability to make advance tax payments, exposure to new tax issues, increased tax deficiency, the need for extensive discovery, burden of proof considerations, the need for a jury trial, or specific judicial precedents that make a particular forum more desirable.
Should the case progress to the litigation stage, rest assured that our team will advocate on your behalf throughout all court proceedings. Our strategies may encompass contesting the fundamental tax claim, asserting improper collection practices, or pursuing reimbursement for overpayments through refund litigation.
