You’ve had your finances in the hands of your trusted CPA (certified public accountant) for years and everything is running smoothly. Why would you switch to a tax attorney?
Steven Moskowitz, Bay Area tax attorney and former CPA, explains to KGO.
By law, a CPA may be required to testify and disclose all of your records and conversations to the government upon the government’s demand. Alternatively, a tax attorney has attorney-client privilege. In short, your secret remains a secret!
Tax attorneys also have significant advantages over CPAs when it comes to tax litigation and negotiating settlements. Their legal expertise and ability to litigate the case in court gives the government a convincing reason to agree to the best settlement.
