IRS tax problems are serious matters. IRS enforcement includes not just asset seizures, wage garnishments, and monetary penalties, but can also include criminal charges. Don't ignore an IRS notice. Don't delay your response. Local IRS offices can offer only basic help as explained immediately below. But if your tax issue is important and complex, then you need the expert advocacy of a qualified California tax attorney that serves the community of Calabasas. Don't wait until it's too late.
IRS Office Nearest Calabasas
The IRS's closest local office to Calabasas is its Los Angeles office at 300 North Los Angeles Street, telephone (213) 576-3009. Local IRS offices offer basic information about new federal legislation, IRS notices and levies, and routine matters like departure permits and heavy-vehicle highway-use permits. You may also be able to update account information or pay taxes there (check and money order only). Local IRS offices also help with individual federal tax returns during tax season between January 1 and April 18. Although local IRS offices have a few tax forms on hand, you must generally go online for most tax forms. IRS offices do not offer the aggressive advocacy and innovative solutions that many tax problems require.
Taxpayers have the rights to challenge the IRS's exercise of its formidable enforcement powers. The Taxpayer Bill of Rights guarantees that the IRS informs you of your matter and that you pay only the correct amount. The IRS must let you challenge its actions in a fair proceeding and allow you to appeal any adverse finding until you have a final decision in the matter. You also have the right to privacy and confidentiality.
A Taxpayer's Most Important Right
Your most important right, the last one that the Taxpayer Bill of Rights also guarantees, is your right to representation by your own tax lawyer. Tax laws and proceedings are complex. A local California tax attorney has the experience, skills, and expertise to help you achieve a resolution fitting your specific needs. Many tax issues may require an attorney, including:
- income tax fraud;
- liens, garnishments, and levies;
- audits and appeals;
- unfiled tax returns;
- unpaid payroll taxes and trust-fund recovery penalties;
- offers in compromise;
- installment-plan agreements;
- hardship status;
- injured-spouse and innocent-spouse relief;
- state license and vehicle-tag holds;
- state sales and use taxes;
- state tax audits;
- California residency disputes;
- other tax problems.
