Tax Controversy and Disputes
The United States tax system is designed as a self-assessment system that is both complex and comprehensive. When faced with a tax controversy, a taxpayer and/or fiduciary will be faced with a significant number of complex issues with consequences for each decision made. At CSBB, each of our lawyers is a “tax lawyer”, meaning that, in addition to their law degrees, almost all of our lawyers also are CPAs and/or possess a graduate degree in tax law (LL.M.). Because of our unique background, we have the ability to assist taxpayers from the inception of an audit all the way through the litigation of the controversy.
When dealing with tax controversies and disputes, it is important to know the procedural rules and framework in order to preserve your rights. How long do you have to respond to IRS notices? What is the proper venue for your controversy or proceeding? Do you have a right to an appeal? We have been working with the IRS for over 30 years. As a result of our broad scope tax practice, the attorneys at CSBB have significant experience handling complex tax controversies and disputes involving partnerships, limited liability companies, individuals, trusts and estates.
