Explaining Tax Litigation to Our Clients
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collects taxes from individuals and businesses in the United States. Individuals and companies that don’t correctly pay or file taxes may be subject to litigation. Tax litigation involves a dispute between the taxpayer and the IRS, through which the IRS attempts to collect the taxes owed. The process can be challenging as you must provide evidence to demonstrate that you’re entitled to the deductions or credits that the IRS has questioned. You must understand your rights and responsibilities if you’re involved in a tax dispute.
Nesso Tax is your trusted ally in the tax litigation process. We guide our clients through every step, providing expert advice and representation. Our team of experienced tax advisors will work with the IRS on your behalf, preventing you from having to communicate directly. We focus on finding creative and innovative solutions for each situation to avoid unwanted outcomes. Ultimately, we want you to avoid any unnecessary stress and financial burdens. This way, you’ll be on the correct path to pursue your long-term goals.
What Our Tax Litigation Service Includes
Contesting IRS Findings
As we mentioned, the IRS can challenge your deductions and credits. We’ll provide you with a full review of all the documents required by the IRS and contest any findings you may disagree with. We’ll ensure that all your documents are in order and build a solid case to defend you against any penalties or fines associated with the IRS’s findings. When it comes time for your case to be heard, all the evidence needed will be easily accessible.
Filing Court Petition
You can file a court petition if the IRS disagrees with your proposed solution. A court petition formally requests the IRS to settle the dispute. We realize that filing a petition can be intimidating, so we’re here to help make it easier. Our experts will draft a legally sound document and go above and beyond to protect your rights. Furthermore, we’ll file the petition timely to avoid additional penalties or fines from accruing.
When you’re involved in a tax dispute, the IRS will ask you to provide certain documents to support your case. For example, you may need to present your budgets, financial statements, bills, receipts, and other information as proof of your claimed expenses or deductions. Our team of tax advisors is here to help you identify the required documents and understand their importance in your case.
The IRS may conduct an audit to verify your claims. An audit is when an IRS representative examines documents and records in detail. We’ll provide you with comprehensive support in the audit process, including presenting your documents, answering questions, and more. We can also prepare a persuasive argument to explain why your deductions or credits are valid.
Situations Where You May Need Our Tax Litigation
The IRS may come after you with a deficiency notice if you have unpaid taxes. We’ll review the notice and provide solutions to help you pay your taxes and avoid penalties or fees.
You’ll be subject to various tax penalties if the IRS finds that you haven’t paid your taxes in full or on time. We’ll work with the IRS to reduce any charges and help you make payment arrangements so you can stay compliant.
Back taxes are taxes that you owe for previous years. We’ll review your back taxes, estimate the amount due, and develop a repayment plan that fits your financial situation.
A fraudulent claim is when you purposely overstate your expenses or deductions to reduce the taxes you owe. We’ll provide a full review of the allegations, working to prove that your claims are valid and by the law.
If you disagree with the IRS’s decision, you can appeal to present your case in front of a judge. Nesso Tax can help you prepare for this process by explaining what’s involved and the risks associated with appealing.
We’ll provide you with the proper support if the IRS decides to conduct an audit. With our help, you can easily present your documents and make a strong argument that supports your deductions and credits.
