IRS Tax Relief Attorney

The Internal Revenue Service… do those three words strike fear into your heart? Or at least, cause a little anxiety? If you have a tax problem with the IRS, you are certainly not alone. You don’t need to beat yourself up over it — but you do need to resolve it. That may mean attaining the services of an IRS tax relief attorney. Not all tax problems require an attorney and you can educate yourself on how to handle your particular situation but if you’re in deep — and those of you who are know what we mean by ‘in deep’ — you probably need an attorney who focuses solely on resolving Internal Revenue Service cases.

A tax relief attorney can assist you with:

  • Tax resolutions
  • Settling your tax debt
  • Stopping bank levies
  • Stopping wage garnishments
  • Preparing unfilled returns
  • Audit defense
  • Tax evasion cases
  • Innocent spouse of tax evader

Tax attorneys must hold not only a bachelor’s degree from a four-year school, but also a jurist doctorate degree. Some IRS attorneys are aided by certified public accountants who may have a Masters degree in taxation. IRS attorneys know the intricate details and the ins and outs of IRS practices and procedures. They have devoted their practice to helping people resolve their IRS tax problems and debts.

Note that “Tax Relief” is the actual name of a program that the IRS created to settle debts with taxpayers at a lower amount than what is owed. All taxpayers have the opportunity to try and resolve their debt using the tax relief program. Your IRS attorney can tell you more about the program and what it involves, including what the attorney thinks your chances are of reducing your debt. And he or she can probably give you an idea of how much it could potentially be reduced.

There are a lot of big companies out there who advertise IRS relief and work with thousands of clients who are in IRS trouble. That doesn’t always mean they are the best choice for IRS help. Some of them charge you fees and then never get your case resolved. Check their history and look for reviews. You can check with the Better Business Bureau to see if their customers have filed complaints. Most often, a single tax attorney working right in your town can effectively handle your IRS problem. Remember the IRS has a swarm of tax attorneys working for them. This is just another reason why it may be a good idea to have an attorney of your own who fully knows the IRS.

Beware of using a tax adviser if your case is serious, because these professionals may not have the level of knowledge, skill, and experience of a bona fide IRS tax relief attorney. There are many online directories that will lead you to your local tax attorney, or just ask among your friends. Chances are, one of them has had an IRS problem too.
