IRS Problems ?
While there are lots of reasons to hire a local San Diego Tax Attorney for tax problem resolution there are a couple of Super-Significant reasons above all others:
Reason One – Confidentiality
If you find yourself in trouble with the IRS only an attorney can give you the attorney-client privilege. Why is the attorney-client privilege important for your tax law case? Simple! – Your attorney is exempt from testifying against you. That’s a huge deal! Should your tax controversy / tax liability case go to trial, and you have chosen to work with a tax preparer, an accountant, or a CPA for help, all of these people can be compelled to testify against you!
Not Good! – The very people most familiar with your tax and financial situation could be forced to spill the beans about any damaging information they may have during your trial. You do not want to take this risk. To prevent such potential catastrophes, work only a tax attorney if the IRS is possibly about to take action against you.
Reason Two – The Expertise To Make the Right Decisions
Only a Tax Attorney will have the knowledge and experience necessary to achieve a tax settlement on your behalf. While an accountant or CPA may be familiar with some tax settlement programs, they will not have a full understanding of the and “ins and outs” of all the various programs offered by the State Tax agencies and the IRS. State and Federal Tax laws are complex and change yearly. Moreover, there are many programs available that a troubled taxpayer can use to settle or reduce the amount of tax liability owed – but only an experienced tax attorney will know how to determine both the best program to shoot for and then to qualify you so that a settlement is actually possible. In addition sharing with you all of the various programs, a tax attorney can inform you of any negative consequences resulting from any potential debt settlement program.
A Tax Attorney does this day in and day out. He or she works on countless cases with the IRS. Often times the IRS will not accept the initial offer and the process can drag on for some time. An experienced tax lawyer will let you know that while the process drags on, at least you are not being hounded for collection or audit and will counsel you not to panic as your attorney hammers out a successful resolution in your best interest.
Being under collections pressure from the IRS is a dangerous time and picking the wrong professional to stand beside you can be very costly. Do not take any chances with your financial future. Instead, hire a tax attorney and get your tax settlement case resolved properly.
