Settling your tax controversy in Boston:
Tax controversies arise from seemingly infinite sets of circumstances. However, once you are involved in a dispute, there are few places to turn. There may be tax attorneys by the score, but relatively few are experienced tax controversy lawyers. Our attorneys focus their law practice on tax controversy and tax litigation issues, including:
-State tax agency disputes
If necessary we can argue your case as tax counsel before tax court, bankruptcy court, district court, or the Court of Federal Claims.
Tax disputes require knowledgeable attorneys:
Tax litigation lawyers have in-depth tax knowledge plus the ability to effectively argue your case in court following the procedures that govern Internal Revenue Service (IRS) actions and limitations on enforcement. That knowledge generates an advantage for you. Tax collection and enforcement issues can include:
-Abatement of tax penalties
-IRS enforcement proceedings
-Violations of Circular 230
-Summons enforcement actions
-Wrongful levy actions
Gain credibility before the court:
Although not a guarantee of success, retaining a skilled tax litigation or tax controversy attorney creates possibilities for positive outcomes in tax disputes. The United States Tax Court, U.S. District Court, and the Court of Federal Claims all follow certain rules and procedures that can influence litigation leverage in these courts. A reputable tax controversy attorney improves your credibility.
