FAQs about tax law
What does a tax attorney do?
Do you have questions about business tax, employment tax, or sales tax? A tax attorney can answer them.
If you’re facing a tax litigation issue, whether civil or criminal, investigations or audits, or even something as seemingly simple as tax preparation, experienced tax attorneys can walk you through the process and help interpret the relevant legal and tax codes.
Is a CPA the same as a tax attorney?
No! CPAs have an important skill set, but they are not the same thing as a tax attorney. CPAs, or certified public accountants, can perform general accounting services and they can help you figure out the best way to prepare and file your tax return based on your individual needs using their detailed knowledge of tax code.
A tax attorney, on the other hand, doesn’t just know the tax code inside and out, but also is versed in the laws surrounding the tax code. Their extensive knowledge of both code and law helps them provide valuable insight into how the IRS may interpret and enforce these rules. Tax attorneys are also prepared to help you resolve any legal proceedings you may encounter with the IRS.
I'm being audited by the IRS. What should I do? What are my rights?
Your first course of action should be to contact a tax attorney to help you find the best solution for your case. Even if you choose to represent yourself, they’ll provide valuable insight and guidance on how to proceed in your meeting with the IRS. (But one of the benefits of hiring a tax attorney: they can represent you in any meetings.)
A tax attorney can also help you understand the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, which grants all taxpayers essential rights in any interactions with the IRS. These rights include, but aren’t limited to, the right to be informed, the right to challenge the IRS’s position, the right to appeal, and the right to retain representation.
