Tax Dispute Resolution
Tax controversy is the name given by the legal profession to tax disputes that arise between tax collection entities such as the Internal Revenue Service and State Agencies, and taxpayers.
Our firm’s tax controversy practice represents individuals, estates, and business organizations in all phases of federal and state tax controversy and litigation. Because the ability to explain and utilize the complexities of tax law is critical, our team of tax attorneys practice with our own in house CPAs and support staff to provide unparalleled efficient, comprehensive representation. The tax code is complex, and the government has the advantage in resources and in practice; taxpayers must not only prove the validity of their tax position, but also prove they are entitled to take that position (for instance, substantiating a deduction).
For over 30 years, Moskowitz LLP has provided representation to clients for tax matters before the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), California State Franchise Tax Board (“FTB”), California State Board of Equalization (“BOE”), California State Employment Development Department (“EDD”), and various related taxing agencies, including but not limited to, Workers Compensation and the Department of Insurance matters. We continue to have one of the busiest, if not the busiest trial court practice in the San Francisco Tax Court. Over the years, our professionalism and precise knowledge of the tax code has earned us the respect of tax agents and fellow attorneys; this allows us to enjoy productive relationships with opposing counsel while vigorously representing our client.
We are proud to have achieved exceptional results for our clients. Put our experience to work for you. Please see our success pages and attorney bios for examples.
