Orange County Tax Controversy Lawyer
Personal, Focused Attention on Your California or Federal Tax Issues
The term “tax controversy” is used by the IRS, state authority, and legal insiders more than ordinary citizens. This term, however, captures a wide range of circumstances that can greatly complicate your life as a business owner or individual.
Based in Irvine, California, the Tax Litigation Law Offices of Scott Kauffman is here to assist individuals and small to mid-sized companies with all issues relating to federal and state tax law. I am a well-educated, focused Orange County tax controversy attorney who is prepared to deliver personal attention to every client and every case.
to discuss your issue with me during an initial consultation. I do not pass clients on to paralegals or less experienced associates. I will work with you directly to achieve the best possible result at the lowest cost to you.
Protecting Your Interests and Handling All Interactions With Tax Authorities
Disputes and collection efforts can occur due to unfiled returns or at several points after your return has been filed. I primarily represent those who are the target of an IRS audit or IRS investigation and those with potential tax evasion or fraud, and those who need help resolving past-due tax burdens, but my legal education and experience in taxation runs deep. With advanced tax degrees and more than 20 years devoted to tax law, I am comfortable with the full range of negotiations and litigation centered on specific issues such as:
- California residency and tax obligations
- Hobby losses claimed as business expenses or personal deductions
- Wrongful disclosure suits and wrongful levy claims
- Jeopardy assessments
I also help clients defend their rights if they have been formally charged with a tax crime or need help shielding an innocent spouse from exposure. I work hard to negotiate offers in compromise, which allows you to settle your IRS tax debt for less than the total amount you owe.
I am here to step in as soon as you are contacted by the IRS for any reason. In some cases, my clients have just learned they are being audited; in others, bank accounts or other assets may have been seized.
My professional mission and obligation as a California tax litigation attorney is to keep government authorities honest. Please, do not face an IRS audit or deal with another type of tax controversy on your own. Instead, call my office in Orange County today at 949-474-1820 .
