Irvine Tax Litigation Attorney

California Tax Court Lawyer
Orange County – Irvine – Newport Beach
(949) 474-1820

When the IRS is not willing to negotiate reasonably, the Tax Litigation Law Offices of Scott Kauffman is fully prepared to represent you or your business in Tax Court to dispute an audit finding or appeals decision.

We stand up for small businesses and individuals in Irvine, California and all communities of Orange County such as Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Santa Ana, San Clemente, Mission Viejo and Huntington Beach. I offer 30 years of experience as an attorney, including extensive litigation as both a prosecutor and public defender. Since 1986, I have focused exclusively in tax law, taking many cases to court when necessary.

Confident Representation for Your Day in Tax Court

Ninety percent of my cases are settled at or before the Appeals Officer level. But some cases the government will not settle. Sometimes the IRS is not realistic, or the national office decides, “No, this is an issue that needs to be litigated.”

So your case goes to the United States Tax Court, United States District Court, or the United States Court of Claims (depending in part upon the issues of your particular case). Regardless of where your case is heard, you can be assured that I will aggressively litigate your tax problem. Unchallenged, an unfavorable audit may result in additional tax liens, even leading to a bank levy or wage levy to collect what the IRS says you owe.

I have taken many tax cases to court, with favorable results. As with filing an appeal, my thorough preparation is the key. Contact an experienced California tax court lawyer for the best opportunity to prevail.
