For most taxpayers an IRS tax dispute is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and this can cause fear and anxiety in the most honest taxpayer. This government agency has a reputation for being highly aggressive and unforgiving, and this reputation is well earned.  IRS revenue agents have a wide range of powers at their disposal. These agents can garnish earnings and paychecks, seize property and freeze accounts, and even take your home or put you in jail at times.

As experienced IRS attorneys we see the devastation that the IRS can cause on a regular basis if the taxpayer does not take quick action to prevent it. If you are in a tax dispute with the IRS then you should contact a qualified tax attorney as soon as possible.

The best way to avoid being intimidated and bullied by the IRS is to avoid a tax dispute entirely, and there are five facts that can help you do this.

1) The IRS understands the tax code, but they are betting on the fact that most taxpayers do not understand this code and they will take advantage of the lack of knowledge that a taxpayer has. If you do not have a tax attorney on your side then you are at a disadvantage right from the start. Every year the United States tax code gets longer and more complicated, and taxpayers can not keep up unless they are continuously educating themselves on these changes. An experienced lawyer will be aware of the changes and stay on top of the tax code each year.

2) Computerized systems at the IRS are programmed to check tax returns for any red flags. These red flags are indications that the taxpayer has made a mistake or that the individual is trying to illegally lower the tax debt that is owed. The IRS does not have enough resources or agents to look over every single tax return that is filed each year. Learning what causes the system to send up a red flag can help taxpayers avoid an audit.

3) Extensions allow a taxpayer to file a tax return after the deadline, but this will not allow the taxpayer to pay any taxes owed after these taxes are due. For most taxpayers this does not make sense but it is the reality of the IRS. If you can not prepare your tax return fully before the filing deadline then an extension will provide more time for you to file, but you can not ay any taxes owed late or you will be assessed late payment penalties and interest. The penalties and interest can add up very quickly.

4) Ignoring the IRS will just make your situation even worse. This may be a common reaction for those who receive notice of a tax dispute with the IRS but it is the worst mistake that you could make. There is a reason why the IRS is seen as persistent, the agency will not stop or give up. The right move is to try to resolve the dispute, and this will go better if you have an experienced IRS attorney at your side.

5) The IRS will often settle a tax debt for less than the full amount owed, but only for those who know how to ask for this. The IRS intentionally makes this process difficult so that all taxpayers do not take advantage of these programs, but with the right legal representation you can resolve your IRS tax debt for less.

Avoid the misery of dealing with the IRS. Knowing these five tips can help you avoid a tax dispute with the IRS, and if one starts then you should consult a qualified attorney right away.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
