Tax Controversy and Disputes Practice
Our tax controversy group handles all types of tax disputes and necessary actions pertaining to the outcomes of those disputes. We are constantly evolving in response to, and in anticipation of, federal and state tax laws, and the interpretation of these laws by revenue departments.
The tax code is complex, and taxing authorities and revenue departments seek to enforce the law using subjective interpretations of the code. We are adept at defending your position and advising you on the best possible strategy to obtain successful results.
Any complete tax controvery and disputes practice covers every nuance of civil tax law and litigation. We know that tax disputes often begin with unfiled tax returns, audits or penalty assessments, and collection representation, a service we provide, is sometimes needed.
For over 30 years, Moskowitz LLP has helped clients respond to 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 Department of Insurance matters. We devise creative ways to resolve disputes. Taxpayers that effectively prepare themselves for these disputes have a better chance of achieving the best result.
We are tax lawyers, and our approach to tax dispute representation and collection representation is unique and effective. For instance, we utilize in-house certified public accountants, enrolled agents and investigators to provide you with complete representation. Our tax lawyers leverage the expertise of other Moskowitz LLP professionals to put the law on your side. Although many service providers claim they can assist with tax controversy matters, we are successful in achieving results with our tested methods.
