Why Do I Need A Tax Attorney?
It is unfortunate but true, that many people do not even consider consulting a tax attorney until they open their mailboxes one day and there is that dreaded letter from the IRS.
A tax attorney is a lawyer that specializes in all areas of taxes. The tax attorney is required to attend law school for one to three more years, after regular law school, to receive their Masters in taxation.
The IRS has its own group of experienced tax attorneys, so if there is ever a time when you need to face the IRS for any reason, it is imperative that you have your own tax attorney with you. A tax attorney has all the tools and means necessary to handle any tax matters that come up during any tax disputes or issues. If you have been contacted by the IRS and are looking to retain the services of a tax attorney, there are certain things to keep in mind when looking for the right one. Call (866) 891-911 right now to speak a tax resolution expert.
First, you need to choose a tax attorney that has extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of taxation. This means your chosen tax attorney should be up to date on all tax regulations, laws, recent and past tax court cases, recent and past tax rulings, appeal procedures, audit procedures, tax litigation and collection. You should also look for business knowledge when considering a tax attorney. Your tax attorney should have a good deal of knowledge when it comes to business accounting. He or she should have the experience and training in financial areas to understand your case fully. Your tax attorney should also have a working knowledge of many other legal areas, such as bankruptcy, agency law and contract law. Your tax attorney should have a good deal of legal knowledge to recognize any issues that could be deemed criminal in nature.
In order to understand whether you qualify for certain forms of tax relief it is important to understand which changes may have been made to the tax code from the previous year. This is usually very difficult for most taxpayers because the tax code is quite thick and difficult to understand. You can still find out whether you qualify for forms of tax relief in other ways; however. First, if you hire someone to help you with your tax preparation they should be well versed on the various forms of tax relief that may be available to you in the current year. They will ask you various questions to help determine whether you are eligible for those forms of tax relief.
Also, if you fill out your tax forms on your own, the tax forms themselves may also ask you questions that will trigger certain forms of tax relief. Keep in mind; however, that this is not the case with all forms of tax relief and you should not rely on the tax forms alone to let you know about relief you may qualify for. If you choose to use a tax preparation software program, it will generally walk you through the process of filing your taxes and ask you questions that will take you through the process step by step. The answers that you provide to the questions asked should let you know if you qualify for various forms of tax relief.
