If you are dealing with an IRS or state taxing agency determination that you underreported a personal or business tax return or failed to file a return, you need to quickly find a clear way forward to minimize the negative effects of these circumstances. At Tax Workout Group, we craft innovative and tailored solutions with one goal in mind — the favorable resolution of tax controversy claims. Our Tax Controversy Group focuses on representing clients in tax controversy disputes through an administrative proceeding when possible, or as a federal or state civil tax litigation matter when necessary. Tax controversy disputes may involve income tax, employment tax, sales or use tax, excise taxes, or property taxes for an individual, a business, a trust, or an estate. When we cannot first dispute the tax claim(s), our attorneys aggressively negotiate and seek compromise for reduced penalties or payment plans with the taxing agency's collection division.
We represent taxpayers in deficiency, refund, and collection defense matters before the IRS Examination (IRS audit), the Appeals and Collection Divisions of the IRS, and state tax agencies — drawing upon our highly-valued judgment, familiarity, and deep experience in the trial, negotiation, and various procedural facets of these tax disputes. With The Tax Workout Group, you will be represented by a team knowledgeable in the intricacies of substantive tax laws, interfacing effectively with Revenue Agents, devising audit defense strategies, and pursuing administrative appeals.
Our Tax Controversy Group provides the following legal services:
The tax controversy attorneys and tax professionals at our firm are made up of former IRS and taxing agency representatives, holding advanced LLM degrees in taxation and leveraging strong accounting backgrounds to help various parts of your case that may involve tax audits, appeals, collection matters, criminal enforcement, or tax litigation. Taxpayers have a choice of three different forums when litigating tax disputes: the Tax Court, the federal district court, or the Court of Federal Claims. Some factors affecting our decision of the right forum for your case may include your willingness or ability to advance pay the tax, exposure to new issues, increased tax deficiency, the need for extensive discovery, burden of proof considerations, the need for a jury trial, or judicial precedents making a particular forum more preferable.
If the case proceeds to the litigation stage, our team will skillfully represent you in all court proceedings with strategies that may involve challenging the underlying tax claim, arguing there was inappropriate collection activity, or seeking to recover overpayments through refund litigation.
