Offers in Compromise
When federal tax liability is in question or where tax collection may be unfair or cause an undue hardship, KLF represents clients in negotiating an offer in compromise of the assessed amount. Over the past 32 years, this representation has resulted in the majority of the firm's clients compromising their federal tax liabilities for substantially less than the amount due.
Criminal Tax Offenses
The recent surge in IRS enforcements (and resulting surge in IRS revenues) means that corporations and small businesses alike must be especially concerned with their ability to defend against charges of failure to file a tax return, filing a false tax return, tax evasion, tax fraud and other criminal tax controversy matters.
The intricate legal distinctions between lawful tax avoidance and illegal tax evasion, or between negligent mistakes and knowing and willful mis-filings, demand that you retain knowledgeable and experienced tax attorneys to represent you. In addition to 30+ years of legal experience, the attorneys at KLF team with a forensic accountant in criminal tax fraud cases where necessary to provide the best possible legal representation.
