While most tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service can be resolved through a negotiated settlement, certain tax disputes ultimately rise to the level of civil litigation. When issues cannot be resolved or the stakes are high, it is essential to have the advice and counsel of an experienced tax law attorney.
At The Blair Law Office, we devise comprehensive strategies for all types of tax disputes. We provide cost-effective solutions and have a proven track record of successfully litigating cases for individual taxpayers, high net worth individuals, and business owners. We have considerable experience in tax law and federal court procedures and are highly adept at litigating a wide range of tax cases.
What is the U.S. Tax Court?
The U.S. Tax Court is designed to provide taxpayers with a legal process to dispute alleged IRS tax deficiencies. These cases often arise after a taxpayer contests the findings of an audit. The IRS will then send a “Notice of Deficiency ” and the taxpayer must file a petition with the U.S. Tax Court within 90 days of the mailing date of the notice.
If the amount of the tax debt is $50,000 or less, the matter will be designated as a small case, most of which are typically settled without going to trial. Small tax cases that go to trial are relatively informal and can often be resolved quickly with an experienced tax litigation firm on your side. In cases involving tax debts greater than this amount, the procedures and rules of evidence are more complex. While these cases are often settled before going to trial, if a trial proceeds, the presiding judge will ultimately render a decision that can be appealed.
