We also provide expert IRS representation services because we understand that few things evoke more fear than receiving a notice from the IRS. We act as your representative in front of state and federal agencies to help resolve your issue in a timely manner with as little stress as possible. Professional representation can be vital during an audit, and our experience with tax authorities enables us to guide you through your situation with ease and expertise.
Consider how we can help:
At the office of Michael Delaney, we know your rights. We are fully aware of what the IRS is allowed and not allowed to do, and we will be sure that all of our clients, especially business owners, are fully versed in what is legally acceptable. For example, the IRS does have the right to scrutinize an individual’s bookkeeping and records. However the IRS does not obtain the right to personally interview a taxpayer.
These interviews are discouraged by all tax consultants because more often than not, too much information is volunteered. This is information the IRS has no right or need to know. Instances such as these prove the necessity of IRS representation. As your representation, we will protect all of our clients from situations that create added vulnerability to higher penalties.
There is often a fine line between what an attorney can do and what a CPA can do in terms of representing a client before the IRS. Each have their specialties and that’s why the combination of the two is ideal, depending on the severity of the situation.
Specific instances that require IRS representation, or any type of advice dealing with tax issues include the following: collection matters, bankruptcy, appeals office cases, asset forfeiting, refund claims, penalty relief, and so much more. If you are unsure about whether your particular case requires legal or financial counseling, talk to us first. We can give you the advice you need and the representation required to avoid criminal prosecution and harsher penalties.
