Tax Controversies

We provide aggressive, experienced representation before the Internal Revenue Service and state tax agencies for audits and collection matters. Taxpayers are entitled to many protections while under investigation in a tax controversy and the services of experienced tax counsel can reduce the potential for an adverse determination. When negotiation with the administrative arm of the IRS fails to secure a desired resolution, we have the experience to pursue judicial remedies to assure that our clients only pay the proper amount of tax.

Our clients in the tax area include Fortune 500 companies, mid-size businesses, family and closely-held companies, emerging start-up entities, and not-for-profit organizations, as well as individuals, trusts, and estates. In certain instances, we have been providing tax planning and other tax-related services to the same business for several decades.

Our services include:

  • Representing clients in state and federal tax controversies at both the audit and litigation levels:
  • U.S. Tax Court
  • U.S. District Courts
  • Audit representation
  • Collection representation
  • Criminal investigation division defense
  • Offers in compromise
  • State tax agencies
  • IRS Audits
  • IRS Collection Matters
  • Tax Litigation in District/State Courts
  • Offshore Accounts
  • Voluntary Disclosures

As our clients’ businesses have become increasingly global in scope, we have also assisted them with a broad range of international tax issues.
