Tax Attorney: Disputing IRS Judgments

Celina Henry

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) plays a pivotal role in the collection of federal taxes in the United States. Occasionally, disputes arise between taxpayers and the IRS, often due to complex tax laws and misinterpretations. This is where a tax attorney, a legal professional specializing in the complex field of tax law, becomes invaluable.

If you're facing an IRS judgment that you believe to be unfair or erroneous, a tax attorney can help you dispute it effectively.

Disputing IRS Judgments

If you disagree with an IRS judgment, it's not the end of the line. There are several steps a tax attorney can guide you through to dispute the judgment:

  • IRS Notice: Before taking any action, your tax attorney will help you understand the IRS notice or judgment. The IRS provides detailed explanations of its decisions, but the language can often be complex and challenging to understand. A tax attorney can help break down this information and explain what it means for you or your business.
  • Appeals: If you and your tax attorney believe there's a valid basis for disputing the IRS judgment, the next step is to file an appeal. The IRS Office of Appeals is separate from the main IRS body and provides a venue where disagreements concerning the application of tax law can be resolved on a fair and impartial basis.

Your tax attorney will help you prepare for the appeals process, which may include compiling documentation to support your case, preparing legal arguments, and negotiating with the IRS. If the issue cannot be resolved through an appeal, your attorney can represent you in tax court.

Representing You in Tax Court

In some cases, disputes cannot be resolved through the IRS appeals process and must be taken to the U.S. Tax Court.

  • Representation: Your tax attorney can represent you, presenting arguments, cross-examining IRS witnesses, and introducing evidence to support your case.
  • Expert Knowledge: Tax laws are notoriously complex. A tax attorney has the training and knowledge to navigate these laws, making them the best equipped to handle your dispute with the IRS.
  • Negotiations: Tax attorneys have extensive experience negotiating with the IRS. They can use these skills to work towards a resolution that satisfies both you and the IRS, potentially reducing the amount you owe or creating a manageable payment plan.

Disputing an IRS judgment can be stressful. Having a tax attorney handle your case allows you to focus on your personal life or running your business, knowing that a professional is advocating for your best interests.
