Tax Litigation of IRS controversies and tax litigation of State tax matters can sometimes be the best way to deal with your tax problems. When there is a tax dispute with the Internal Revenue Service or the State, sometimes the only way to resolve the tax problem is through tax litigation.
If you have tax problems with the IRS you may want to consider litigation to settle the matter. Just keep in mind that not all tax lawyers are tax litigators. Many tax lawyers that handle tax planning, inheritance tax concerns, estate - probate taxes, business taxation, business organizations & corporate tax structures, and other personal and business tax concerns donít always have tax litigation experience. In fact, the majority of tax planning attorneys donít have years of practical litigation experience with the IRS in matters involving tax controversy.
When IRS problems involving tax controversy or disputes with the IRS arise, you need an experienced tax litigation attorney. A tax litigation attorney can represent you in Tax Court, Federal District Court, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, or even United States Bankruptcy Court in order to settle your controversy. When you encounter a tax collection problem with the IRS, your tax planning attorney may refer you to a tax litigation lawyer because the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to litigate tax matters arenít the same as those needed of a tax attorney specializing in tax planning.
Litigation attorneys that handle tax matters before the Federal Courts have to understand the Internal Revenue Code, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the rules of procedure of the United States Tax Court, and the rules of the other Federal Courts where matters of tax controversy may be litigated.† Advising you as to the advantages and disadvantages of a particular litigation forum is a key to understanding the possible outcomes in a tax controversy. In many IRS controversies, removing the matter to Court for litigation can sometimes increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome or tax resolution.
