Dealing with the IRS is a serious matter. Taxpayers who “go it alone” usually get into more tax trouble, then end up hiring a tax lawyer anyway. Don’t take the chance of increasing your IRS troubles. Visit our FAQ page on this website, and call us for representation before the IRS with any tax problem.
Payroll tax. Some undercapitalized businesses may “pyramid” in the nonpayment of taxes, which only makes an IRS Revenue Officer more determined to get the business into compliance, or to shut it down. As a tax lawyer practicing since 1993 in Denver, I can help get your company into return-filing and tax-paying compliance. If your company owes payroll taxes, it is time to take a serious look at the cash flow of the business, and any management and marketing problems that may be causing your company to fail at this integral part of the business.
Unfiled tax returns. If you fail to file your tax return, the IRS can file a return for you (based on information it receives from entities that pay you) several years from now, and assess not only the tax, but years of penalty and interest. You may end up owing much more that you would have if you had filed your return on time, resulting in liens, levies, and other tax-collection action.
Liens and levies. By federal statute, the IRS has the ability to levy (garnish) a certain amount of your pay—as well as your property (house, car, bank account)—once the tax has been assessed, or you file a return and fail to pay the tax. If you fail to pay your taxes, the IRS has the right (by federal statute) to file a lien against your property and rights to property, real and personal, tangible and intangible, in order to put others on notice of the tax liability and to facilitate collection of the tax. We can help establish you or your company an installment agreement, and ask the IRS to withdraw a tax lien.
Tax audits. IRS audits will increase in the near future, thanks to recent hiring of Revenue Agents. In order to ensure that you are not surprised during the audit, and to prepare in the event the audit leads to real problems like a Tax Court Petition or U.S. District Court litigation, you should hire a capable tax attorney to represent you.
Tax payment problems. The IRS is willing to work with taxpayers who cannot pay the tax in full, provided the taxpayers follow certain basic requirements. We can lead you or your company through the maze of tax laws and regulations.
