We Handle Tax Disputes of Every Kind – if There’s a Conflict

At G&G Law, LLC, we leave the preparation of tax returns to other professionals. Instead, we focus our efforts on tax services that fit our skill set as Attorneys.

As Attorneys, we have studied, and trained for our professional from the perspective of  conflict resolution. In any true legal dispute, we must establish favorable facts, and make compelling arguments. Clients find that we are their most committed allies when the IRS fails to consider the facts that weigh in their favor. They value our seasoned advice and skill set when they hire us to advocate for alternative interpretations of the law.

Not Always Up for Negotiation

Not everything with the IRS is a negotiation, as some television commercials would have you believe.

If you have a tax debt and you lack a good argument as to why you should not owe it, the only argument you have left is that you cannot afford to pay it. The IRS will request certain financial information and compute your required monthly payment for you, if that’s what you want. But don’t expect them to advise you on other expenses you could be taking, or to understand the difference between your actual Cash Flow and Gross Income.

Sometimes – in fact, often – the only honest answer to the question of whether or not you can settle your IRS liability for less than what you owe is one word. “No.”

No, you can’t just offer the IRS a lump sum to get rid of penalties and interest.

No, the IRS will not just take pennies on the dollar just because you (or someone else) convinces them to.

Sometimes, you make too much money, or you have too many assets, and the answer is obvious.

We’ll tell you the truth, even when you don’t want to hear it. We won’t sell you on a solution that is not available.

But When it Is a Negotiation, it matters who speaks for you

When you have something to say to the IRS it is important that they listen and understand what you are telling them. IRS employees handle loads of cases, especially when they are working in a call center. We bring the relevant details and authority to the IRS’ attention. And, in circumstance where the IRS is unwilling to entertain our positions, we litigate.

As Attorneys we can carry your tax dispute from start to finish, without a hand-off to someone else.
