Effective representation from audit to appeal to tax court or District Court litigation

Few things in life are more stressful than a dispute with the Internal Revenue Service. To the average taxpayer, the IRS seems like an impersonal, monolithic bureaucracy that acts as judge, jury and executioner. Apprehension over dealing with the IRS can lead to inaction and delays that compound your tax problems. However, an experienced tax lawyer who understands the inner workings of the IRS can calmly assess your tax liability and guide you toward a swift, fair resolution. Klein & Associates has helped anxious taxpayers resolve contentious disputes with the IRS on appeal and in the U.S. Tax Court. While no tax attorney can guarantee results, we work hard to take the pain out of the process while providing the best available result under your circumstances.

Dispute resolution from an experienced U.S. Tax Court attorney

Our firm handles IRS disputes at all stages:

  • Audit — The IRS contests your return and demands to look at your books. An audit initially may be for one tax year, but may uncover discrepancies that prompt an extension of the audit to three or five years of your finances. While accountants generally handle audits, it’s sometimes helpful to have an experienced attorney involved, especially if the auditors want to expand the scope of the audit.
  • Appeal — After an audit or a letter from the IRS revising your tax assessment, you have the right to appeal. Appeals generally take place over the phone and involve intricate negotiations. Our firm works with IRS appeals officers to secure a favorable determination.
  • Litigation — Issues not resolved on appeal may proceed to the U.S. Tax Court or U.S. District Court. Our firm has tried cases involving complex tax allegations with favorable results for our clients.

Most tax lawyers do not go to tax court; they only give advice and manage appeals. However should your case need to go to the next step, Klein and Associates can take you there. If you have a serious tax dispute, take advantage of our expertise.
