When you have a tax problem, you want a tax expert who can tell you where you stand and what your best options are – and then you would like that expert to negotiate with the IRS on your behalf. There are some important considerations when thinking about who to hire to resolve your tax problems. The Tax Defense Partners team includes tax attorneys. What should you think about when looking for a tax attorney to help you?
Most tax attorneys (also most CPA’s) spend 99% of their time trying to keep you out of IRS trouble, and very little or no time helping clients who are actually in tax trouble. Practicing before (against) the IRS is a very narrow specialty that is governed by a very specific set of rules. If you have tax debt that you don’t agree with, or can’t handle, then you want a tax attorney that specializes in practicing specifically against the Collections Division of the IRS. If you have received an audit notice, you want a tax lawyer that knows how to create a case for, and negotiate against, specifically the Examination Division of the IRS. To be effective and efficient, and most importantly, cost-effective in resolving IRS debt and audit matters, your tax attorney needs to know a very specific set of rules and standards that are applied by the Collections Division and Examination Division to all cases they have in their sights.
In addition to being a member in good standing of their respective state bars (which most attorneys are), your IRS tax attorney needs to be specifically registered to practice before the IRS. It’s not that hard to become registered, so if the tax attorney you are considering hiring is not yet registered at the time you explain your problem to them, look elsewhere. As with anything else, experience matters the most. You want a tax attorney that fulfills the same requirements you would want in a surgeon: 1) hundreds of clients served in the past for specifically the problem you have; and, 2) frequent and recent (like yesterday and today) experience working multiple cases. Because working against the IRS Collection Division and IRS Examination Division is the ONLY thing the Tax Defense Partners tax lawyers do, for the relevant experience, you can’t go wrong giving us a call.
