Sometimes tax cases cannot be resolved at the audit or appeals level and the taxpayer must file suit against the IRS.
We have twenty years of experience in representing taxpayers in proceedings before the United States’ Tax Court.
Tax Court is a Prepayment Forum
When the Commissioner of Internal Revenue has determined a tax deficiency, the taxpayer may dispute the deficiency in the Tax Court before paying any disputed amount.
Tax Court Jurisdiction
The Tax Court’s jurisdiction also includes the authority to redetermine transferee liability, make certain types of declaratory judgments, adjust partnership items, order abatement of interest, award administrative and litigation costs, redetermine worker classification, determine relief from joint and several liability on a joint return, review certain collection actions, and review awards to whistleblowers who provide information to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue on or after December 20, 2006.
Legal Representation is Recommended
Statistics show that taxpayers who go to Tax Court without the assistance of a tax lawyer almost always lose their cases.
