Gilbert Tax Lawyer
Gilbert Tax Lawyers Fight to Protect Your Rights and Minimize Your Liability
You need an experienced Gilbert tax lawyer to represent you when the tax man comes calling. Whether it’s a “simple” audit or a lawsuit, the stakes are too high to try to handle the matter yourself or to hire a lawyer who doesn’t have the right skills and experience. The attorneys at Silver Law PLC in Arizona have both. Our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined experience among them, and they have worked as prosecutors for the Internal Revenue Service, giving them special insights and skills to provide a stronger defense for our clients.
Tax Audit Representation
Tax audits often inspire dread – and for good reason. Sometimes, a simple flag can trigger a tax audit, such as you claiming a home office space. But the audit will take a closer look at what you have reported, and if there are any mistakes, you could end up owing more money or having to pay a penalty. Even if you did not intend to deceive on your tax return, it is very easy for the IRS to find some discrepancy and to penalize you.
A Gilbert tax lawyer from our team can represent you during your tax audit to protect your legal rights and to minimize your liability. Your tax lawyer will find all the deductions and credits you can take, will help you put together the proper documentation for everything you’ve claimed, and will create arguments for why you qualify for certain exceptions. The goal is to turn the audit in your favor and to keep you from getting yourself in any trouble.
Even with your best efforts to reduce your tax liability and to pay your taxes on time, you may find yourself in serious debt to the IRS. Instead of allowing collection efforts to continue and to risk your home or other assets, you need to work with one of our Arizona tax collection attorneys to negotiate a settlement or even get your debt dismissed.
Innocent Spouse Relief
Unfortunately, your spouse is not always as honest with you as you believe. Your spouse could be intentionally lying on your tax return or even hiding assets from you, including investments, income, or property. You may not know about these assets or the fraud, but the IRS will certainly find out about them. When the IRS comes calling, you won’t be able to claim ignorance and get off the hook.
You need a Gilbert tax lawyer who can help you apply and qualify for innocent spouse relief. You can claim that you didn’t know about these assets or reporting mistakes, but you have to meet specific criteria to prove it and to be considered separate from your spouse in the matter. Your tax lawyer will help you do that.
Foreign Tax Reporting
You must report all income and interest earned on your taxes, no matter where you earned it. If you fail to do so, you can face severe fines and penalties, including jail time. Our tax lawyers can help you understand your obligations for foreign tax reporting and the offshore voluntary disclosure initiative. These laws cover accounts and assets that you currently hold overseas, as well as previously undisclosed assets. We’ll help you meet your reporting obligations while also finding ways to reduce your liability.
Litigation is the most serious tax issue you can face. Our tax attorneys represent individual and corporate clients in criminal and civil tax litigation. We fight to help you avoid serious repercussions, including large levies, asset seizure, criminal conviction, and more. We have successfully litigated and defended cases for clients dealing with all types of tax issues.
The IRS is a formidable foe, but it doesn’t have to be if you have the right tax lawyer on your side. The team at Silver Law PLC in Arizona offers compassionate yet tough representation. We help our clients to understand the complex issues involved, and we are fierce advocates for our clients’ rights.
