IRS tax debts require immediate action. To collect tax debt, the IRS has multiple strategies it can use, many of which can devastate you financially. They can use federal tax liens, wage garnishments, levies, and intimidating notices and telephone calls. To protect yourself, your home, and your job when you are in trouble with the IRS you should consider having a tax lawyer on your side. Our tax lawyers understand the complexity of your IRS tax problem and will work to get you the IRS tax debt relief you deserve.

An experienced tax attorney can provide legal tax help in avoiding wage garnishments and IRS levies, releasing tax liens, filing late tax returns, negotiating offers in compromise and resolving payroll tax problems. If the IRS accuses you of a serious crime, such as tax evasion or filing false documents, you would benefit greatly from enlisting the assistance of one of our local tax lawyers.

The IRS will take advantage of a taxpayer who is not knowledgeable about the tax law or IRS audit and collection procedures. Taxpayers need to be protected from IRS error, abuse, and intimidation. Taxpayers frequently overpay their tax liability, either as a consequence of inappropriate IRS actions, or because they do not have the counsel of a skilled and experienced tax lawyer.
