Tax Controversy

Any dispute over taxes causes a great deal of anxiety.  Any loss could have a significant impact on your business or individual estate. With both CPAs and Tax Lawyers on our team, we understand the intricacies and complexities of tax law and the best ways to protect your interests.  McWS Law provides assistance and resolutions for tax audits, litigation and dispute resolution proceedings including administrative appeals relating to the IRS, U.S. Tax Court, Claims Court and other federal, state and appellate courts.  Firm representation includes business entities, individuals and shareholders, partners and partnerships, trusts and estates.  Cases are resolved through negotiated settlement, agreement or disposition with the IRS Office of Appeals, U.S. Tax Court, Court of Federal Claims, US District Court or in California Superior Court for California state tax issues.

Skilled lawyers offer assistance for back taxes

If you have not filed your tax returns for a few years, it is only a matter of time before the IRS contacts you. Once they do, it is essential that you address the problem immediately to avoid criminal charges. With the help of an experienced tax attorney, you can complete your unfiled tax returns efficiently and accurately. At our firm, we can ensure that you file the appropriate forms and documents to resolve your issues with the IRS and protect you from a criminal investigation.

Knowledgeable counselors help clients handle IRS audits

If you are being audited by the IRS, an experienced tax attorney can offer peace of mind by explaining the process and guiding you through it. Our extensive experience with all areas of tax law allows us to understand the complicated procedures that accompany an audit. We ensure that you show up to your audit prepared for what you are about to face by reviewing your tax returns and explaining how to answer questions that the auditor is likely to ask. Trust our firm to ease your stress and give you the guidance you need.

Determined litigators help you resolve disputes

Litigation may be necessary to resolve tax-related disputes between taxpayers and the state or federal government. As your dedicated advocates, we will represent you throughout the litigation process. We help you file the appropriate forms, settle any tax debts, resolve notice issues, and act as mediators between you and the IRS. No matter your issue, our experienced tax law attorneys are prepared to provide you with the knowledgeable advice and strong advocacy you need.

Proven advocates provide criminal defense to tax-related charges

A criminal tax charge has the potential to greatly impact your life, even leading to prison time. You may face criminal charges if you have not filed tax returns for several years or failed to accurately represent your financial situation in your tax form. If this is the case, you need to be represented by an attorney with the tenacity and experience to protect your freedom. At our firm, we defend clients against charges such as tax fraud and tax evasion.
