Why do you need representation when fighting the IRS? It’s simple. You aren’t an experienced professional in the field, and you are going up against someone who is. That immediately puts you at a disadvantage – much like stepping into a ring with a professional heavyweight boxer while not being one yourself.
Bay Area Tax Attorney Steve Moskowitz explains to KGO. He compares the IRS audit to a boxing match. You don’t want to get in that ring and face your opponent if it isn’t a fair fight. That’s where your tax attorney comes into play. They fight the fight for you!
Remember, it isn’t the government’s job to tell you your rights, and they won’t. After all, they are after your money and fighting to win. Your tax attorney is there to fight for you and make sure you take full advantage of the legal system.
