Dealing with the IRS can always be intimidating, and many people feel helpless when an official makes an adverse determination stemming from an audit. It is important to realize that an auditor’s decision is not final and there is often the opportunity to contest the matter in court. Both tax laws and the court system are very complicated, and you need representation by a qualified tax ligation attorney throughout the whole process.
There are many reasons why individuals or companies may need to litigate a tax matter, including:
- Challenging lowered income or disallowed deductions by an auditor
- Challenging unfair tax and penalty assessments
- Challenging estate and gift tax valuations
- Bringing tax collection disputes
- Contesting FBAR penalties
- Defending against civil penalties for negligence or fraud
- Defending against criminal tax charges
