Getting an IRS tax notice makes for a very bad day, perhaps even a bad year when the notice puts one's income, assets, business, and reputation at risk. The IRS can file liens, seize tangible assets, garnish wages and other income sources, and impose fines and penalties, not to mention charge tax crimes. Local IRS offices like the one below provide only limited help. Complex and important tax issues threatening your finances and reputation require the reliable and aggressive representation of a qualified California tax attorney serving private Hidden Hills. Seek help as early as possible.
IRS Office Nearest Hidden Hills
The IRS office nearest Hidden Hills is some distance away in Los Angeles at 300 North Los Angeles Street, telephone (213) 576-3009. Local IRS offices provide only basic help. An IRS office may share information on new federal tax laws and the meaning of IRS notices and levies. Local IRS offices accept requests for alien-clearance sailing permits and heavy-vehicle highway-use permits. You may be able to update or correct basic tax-account information and, of course, pay IRS taxes (check and money order only). Offices do offer help with individual federal tax returns during tax season from January 1 to April 18. You will find only some tax forms available in the office. Most IRS tax forms are only available online. One thing IRS local offices do not offer: private tax lawyers to represent you against the IRS.
Challenging the IRS
Fortunately, hidden within the federal tax code are significant rights and procedures through which taxpayers can challenge the IRS—if they have the skilled and aggressive counsel to help. A Taxpayer Bill of Rights pulls those hidden provisions together, assuring these rights that you: learn the IRS's claims; pay only correct amounts; may challenge the IRS in a fair process; may appeal adverse results; receive a final decision; have privacy and confidentiality rights; and have the right to your own representation—your most-important right.
A California tax attorney knows how to challenge the IRS successfully. By providing firm and aggressive representation, while establishing good relationships with tax agents, a California tax attorney can save taxpayers millions of dollars in disputes with the IRS and other tax authorities on 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.
