Addressing a tax problem is not within the skill set of even sophisticated and successful individuals and business owners. Why not? The federal tax code is hugely complex, not just for laypersons but even for licensed lawyers who do not practice tax law. Administrative procedures for challenging an IRS or other tax levy can be equally confusing. Even more frightening, the IRS files liens, seizes assets, garnishes wages, and imposes penalties, not to mention charging tax crimes. Not surprising, then, that an IRS tax notice can strike fear in the heart of otherwise sophisticated taxpayers.
Local IRS offices like the one below provide only limited help that does not extend to complex tax issues threatening your finances, business, and reputation. Those tax matters require the reliable and resourceful representation of an experienced California tax attorney, preferably one that serves the historic Windsor Square area. Seek the help you need today.
Windsor Square Area IRS Office
The IRS office nearest Windsor Square is some distance away in Los Angeles at 300 North Los Angeles Street, telephone (213) 576-3009. The IRS's Long Beach office at 501 West Ocean Boulevard, telephone (562) 491-7751, is not much farther away. The limited help these offices offer includes information on new federal tax laws. You may learn the meaning of IRS notices and levies and be able to submit requests for things like alien-clearance sailing permits and heavy-vehicle highway-use permits. You may also get to update basic tax-account information. These offices are, of course, willing to accept IRS tax payments (check or money order only). You may also find help with individual federal tax returns during tax season from January 1 to April 18. Only some tax forms are available. Most IRS tax forms are available exclusively online.
Disputing an IRS Assessment
One service that local IRS offices do not offer is a private tax lawyer to represent you in a dispute with the IRS. You have significant rights and fair procedures to challenge the IRS—if you first retain skilled and experienced tax counsel to help. Congress's Taxpayer Bill of Rights assures that you learn the IRS's claim, pay only correct amounts, may challenge the IRS in a fair process, may appeal bad results, receive a final determination rather than face endless litigation, have reasonable privacy and confidentiality rights, and have the right to your own representation—the most-significant right.
An experienced California tax attorney serving the Windsor Square area can expertly handle these and other tax issues:
- income tax fraud;
- liens, seizures, garnishments, and levies;
- audits and appeals;
- unfiled tax returns;
- unpaid payroll taxes / trust-fund recovery penalties;
- offers in compromise;
- installment-plan agreements;
- hardship status;
- injured-spouse or innocent-spouse relief;
- state license and vehicle-tag tax holds;
- state sales-tax and use-tax disputes;
- state tax audits;
- state-to-state residency disputes;
- other federal, state, and local tax problems.
