Tax Lawyers: Why You Should Hire One And How To Do It

By: Gray Rollins

The services of lawyers are obtained daily throughout the United States. There are a wide variety of different lawyers including divorce lawyers, criminal lawyers, real estate lawyers, and even tax lawyers. Tax lawyers can be hired all year round; however, their services are most commonly obtained around or slightly after tax time.

When April 15th rolls around there are a number of Americans who are struggling to get their taxes completed and filed on time. In all of the rush it is possible that a number of major or minor mistakes can be made. When the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) receives a tax return they are likely to notice and change any minor mistakes. Larger mistakes may signal a red flag to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This red flag often leads to an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit. The audit process may be stressful even if a taxpayer did not knowing deceive the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

An audit is most commonly ordered by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) when they notice an error or a piece of important information that does not sound correct. Many Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audits reveal that a taxpayer simply made a mistake, but others may reveal a scam to get more money from the government. Whatever the reason for an audit there are a number of taxpayers who obtain the services of a tax lawyer. Tax lawyers can be brought into the audit proceedings before an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit even begins or they can be hired in the middle of proceedings. There are many taxpayers who initially try handling an audit on their own; however, they often become overwhelmed or concerned with the way that the audit is going. This is when the majority of tax lawyers are hired. http://www.taxhelpdirectory.com/audit/incometaxaudit/

Finding a selection of tax lawyers in the local area is a fairly easy process, but deciding which lawyer to hire may not be as easy. There are a number of lawyers who handle different case types and then there are other lawyers who solely act as tax lawyers. Most taxpayers prefer working with a tax lawyer who specializes in taxes because they tend to be ex-employees of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or they have other tax preparation training and experience.

The best way to find local tax lawyers is by searching the local phone book. The majority of phone books will not separate traditional criminal lawyers from tax lawyers; therefore, a taxpayer may have to call the offices of each lawyer in the phone book for further information. It is best that taxpayers compile a list of multiple tax lawyers. Due to different levels of experience and different fees taxpayers are encouraged to compare the experience and fees of each tax lawyer before making a final decision.

The majority of reputable tax lawyers offer free consultations to the general public. If a free consultation is being offered taxpayers are urged to take advantage of this service. Taxpayers should use the consultation to explain their current situation with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). It is also important that taxpayers determine how the tax lawyer feels that they can help, how much time they can devote to the case, and exactly how much the service will cost. Knowing all of this information will allow a taxpayer to make an informed decision when hiring the services of a tax lawyer.

It is important to remember that hiring a tax lawyer does not automatically guarantee a win. The job of a tax lawyer is to help make sure that their client's financing is accurate and in line with the standards of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Tax lawyers will try with all of their might to argue the case of their client; however, they will not knowing break the law to do so. Individuals who knowingly deceived the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will not make the problem just go away by hiring the services of a tax lawyer; however, that does not mean that one should not be hired. To determine the advantages and disadvantages of hiring a tax attorney individuals are encouraged to pick up their local phone book and schedule a free consultation appointment today.
