Being involved in a tax controversy with the Internal Revenue Service can be a stressful experience. Armed with teams of attorneys, auditors, and agents, the IRS has an advantage over individuals and businesses that are involved in civil tax disputes or criminal investigations.
Located in Denver, The Blair Law Office represents individual taxpayers, business owners and high net worth individuals in Colorado who are under audit or need assistance minimizing tax liabilities. Our team routinely handles a variety of tax-related matters, including:
- Audit Representation
- Tax Court
- Return Preparer Penalties
- Civil Fraud
- Criminal Tax Violations
- Federal Tax Issues
We work with clients who have unpaid taxes, unfiled tax returns, or who may have a tax debt with the IRS following an audit.
If you have received a letter from the IRS informing you that your tax return has been selected for a tax examination, it is crucial to consult with an experienced tax attorney. Generally, there are three types of audits:
- Correspondence Audits
- Office Audits
- Field Audits
We routinely represent individuals, professionals, and businesses facing audits of income or employment tax returns. We are keenly aware that the audit rates for a wide range of taxpayers have risen dramatically in recent years. We will leverage our knowledge of the tax code and help you navigate each phase of the audit process.
Although being under audit can be a stressful experience, this does not mean that you are being accused of doing something wrong. While some audits may be targeted, other taxpayers are selected randomly by the IRS. By engaging the services of The Blair Law Office, your rights, income, assets and property will be protected.
Resolving Tax Issues with The IRS
At The Blair Law Office, our mission is to protect our clients and ensure that they are treated fairly. We devise comprehensive solutions that are tailored to each clients’ situation, including:
- IRS Installment Agreement and Payment Plan
By entering into such an arrangement, you can pay the IRS a pre-determined amount in monthly installments over time until the tax debt, plus interest and penalties is paid in full.
- Offer in Compromise
In this scenario, a tax debt can be settled for less than the amount owed if the IRS determines that making a full payment would cause serious financial hardship.
We will help you understand all of your options and negotiate a settlement with the IRS on your behalf. Ultimately, there are a number of factors the IRS considers such as your income, living expenses and the value of your assets and we will only make an offer that is likely to be accepted.
In some cases, we may be able to arrange for a penalty abatement, particularly if there is a bona fide reason for a tax delinquency such as financial hardship, or if an honest mistake led to an underpayment of your taxes.
Bold & Aggressive Representation
While the Internal Revenue Code grants the IRS broad powers, having an experienced attorney can level the playing field. The Blair Law Office has extensive experience resolving tax controversies and, if need be, pursuing litigation for individual taxpayers, return preparers, and small business owners. The firm is equally adept at representing clients in multi-million dollar corporate audits.
Regardless of your financial status, you should never speak to an IRS agent or enter into a settlement agreement with tax authorities before consulting with an experienced tax law attorney.
