Practice Areas

After the IRS has assessed a penalty, the taxpayer can request a penalty abatement, typically by writing a penalty abatement letter or by calling the IRS to request a penalty abatement.

Audit

An audit is an examination by the IRS or state taxing agency of an individual or businesses tax return, tax history, or financial records.

Innocent Spouse

Under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), spouses who file joint income tax returns are subject to joint and several liability for the income tax reported on those returns.

Tax Lien

If the IRS has made a notice and demand for payment of back taxes and you have failed to respond, a lien will automatically arise in favor of the federal government.
