Legal Advice For IRS Tax Disputes

No one should face the Internal Revenue Service alone. If you are involved in a dispute over your tax liability with the IRS or a state taxing authority, our lawyers can assist you in reaching a resolution.

The attorneys at Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP (SFMS), regularly work with accountants, auditors and individual taxpayers to address federal and state tax issues. With offices in California, Connecticut, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, we represent corporations and individual taxpayers throughout the United States. Through our association with the Integrated Advisory Group ( IAG), we can also assist you with an international tax controversy.

The following are examples of the tax law services we provide:

  • Defense against tax audits
  • Tax appeals
  • Negotiation of offers in compromise and installment payment plans
  • Relief from tax collection actions
  • Discharge of liens, levies and garnishments
  • Non-filer or late filed tax returns
  • Innocent spouse relief
  • Employment tax disputes
  • Offshore voluntary disclosure and FBAR filings
  • Cross-border tax disputes

Whenever you have a concern about your tax liability, it's important to seek advice from an attorney. Communications with your attorney are protected by attorney-client privilege and generally cannot be used against you in a criminal proceeding. An accountant or investment professional could be compelled to testify against you.

No matter what tax issue you face, SFMS has the knowledge and experience to help you reach a resolution. For a confidential discussion of the tax issues you face, we invite you to contact SFMS to arrange a consultation with one of our lawyers.
