What is Tax Controversy?

Tax controversy is an area of litigation related to tax disputes between the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and taxpayers. Tax law attorneys provide legal services that any taxpayer can benefit from when it comes to audits or litigation. Controversies can either be civil or criminal. Civil controversies are by far the most common, but it is worth noting that civil cases can become criminal cases if a taxpayer is not careful or if the conduct was flagrant and criminal.

These professionals can also negotiate settlements on your behalf and resolve the case in the most efficient and least time consuming manner. Tax disputes can occur at the local, state, federal, and even international level. Individuals, businesses, corporations, trusts, and estates may all be subject to tax controversy. We have experience dealing with a range of issues including: retirement accounts, unreported income, earned income tax credit, child tax credit, hobby losses, estate and gift tax (death tax), micro-captive insurance, charitable deductions, and itemized deductions, just to name a few. We can help you navigate a civil matter before you have a criminal case on your hands.
