IRS Tax Relief Attorney - IRS Tax Attorneys


Choosing the right type of tax professional for your particular tax situation is an important decision because it can help ensure you the best outcome and can save you money. A tax relief attorney or tax debt attorney provides immediate benefits to you. Below are some benefits of using a tax relief attorney, typical situations they can be utilized for, and tax solutions they can help with.

Benefits of a Tax Relief Attorney or Tax Debt Attorney

Tax Attorney Client Privilege: The attorney-client privilege is a legal concept that is used between attorneys and their clients. This makes all communication kept strictly confidential. If a client discloses all information to their attorney, the tax relief attorney can provide better advice and will be able to represent their client in the most effective manner. This is a privilege that is not offered between accountants and their clients. 

Many times, individuals that use tax strategies that may be pushing the tax law boundaries may choose to work with a tax relief attorney instead of another type of tax professional since their tax relief attorney would never be able to testify against them.

Well Rounded Advice: A tax relief attorney will typically have the background and knowledge to offer a wider variety of solutions to a particular tax problem than other types of tax professionals. For example, a CPA or other type of tax professional cannot offer advice for filing for bankruptcy. A tax relief attorney will likely have a bigger arsenal of solutions than other types of tax professionals, which is a good thing when dealing with complex, technical tax problems.

IRS Representation: A tax relief attorney is one of the types of tax professionals that can act on your behalf and represent you before the IRS through power of attorney representation. With power of attorney representation, your tax relief attorney can represent you at meetings with the IRS, respond to IRS letters, and handle all other forms of IRS correspondence on your behalf. A tax relief attorney can also represent you before in tax court for tax issues. Being able to represent you in court is one benefit that other types of tax professionals do not offer.

IRS Tax Negotiation: Tax laws are complex. There is no standard formula to figure out what will be owed, which tax relief mechanism a taxpayer will qualify for or which penalties the IRS will make the taxpayer liable for. Many factors of the tax code can be negotiated. Tax relief attorneys generally have superior negotiation skills from their background and training than other types of tax professionals.


IRS Problems a Tax Relief Attorney Can Help With:

Unfiled Tax Returns: Unfiled tax returns can be a serious issue, especially if there is a large sum of unpaid taxes that go along with them. If the filing of your tax returns does not have legal or complex issues, it may be a better option to use a CPA or an enrolled agent to help (for the purpose of saving money).

IRS Tax Penalties: Tax penalties can be a significant portion of the total tax debt amount owed to the IRS. Many times these IRS penalties can be significantly reduced by a Tax Relief Attorney when it can be shown to the IRS that there was a legitimate reason for not staying in compliance with IRS tax laws. Also, if all of these penalties cannot be paid it is likely that a tax relief attorney can find the next best solution for you which may be to settle your tax debt.

Federal Tax Liens: A federal tax lien is the government’s claim on your property. A federal tax lien will give IRS rights to everything you own over any other debtor and this will ruin your credit. If a federal tax lien is not resolved it can likely lead to a tax levy, which will allow the IRS to legally seize your assets.

IRS Tax Levy: The IRS can legally seize wages, bank accounts, real estate, cars, boats, 401K’s and more. When being faced with an IRS tax levy it is important to act immediately to limit the financial impact of it. A tax debt attorney can stop an IRS levy and prevent significant financial damage.
Unpaid Taxes: There are countless solutions to resolving unpaid taxes. Of these solutions, some are supported by the IRS and others the IRS would never recommend. Having a tax attorney assess your situation from every angle possible can ensure you will get the best financial outcome, whether it is IRS recommended or not.

Offer in Compromise Tax Settlements: An offer in compromise is a complex tax relief settlement that allows you to settle your taxes for less than the total amount owed. 

IRS Payment Plans: The IRS offers various forms of payment plans. A tax attorney can help analyze your financial situation and determine the best type of payment plan to use, determine the monthly amount to be paid, and handle all related filings to get it properly setup.

Penalty Abatement: IRS tax penalties can be partly or fully removed through penalty abatement. The IRS uses tax penalties as a way to frighten taxpayers into staying in compliance with tax regulations.  The only way the IRS will remove these penalties is if proof is shown that there was reasonable cause for not staying in compliance with IRS tax regulations.

Innocent Spouse Relief: An uncommon type of tax relief that many tax attorneys are aware of is called innocent spouse relief. When individuals are married and file a joint tax return, each spouse is then jointly and equally liable for the tax liability that is created. The IRS made innocent spouse relief because it realizes that at times it is unfair to hold both spouses liable for the tax liability that was created.
