What is Tax Litigation?

Tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service focus on personal and business income. Federal tax litigation is the process of resolving tax controversies that arise due to an audit, unfiled tax returns, or any other myriad ways that can cause a tax problem. Tax litigation can involve both civil and criminal tax matters. Unlike other methods of tax relief, federal tax litigation takes your case to court.

Usually, tax litigation is a last resort option for people who have received a deficiency notice or a 90-day notice that the IRS expects payment for unpaid or underpaid taxes.  To mitigate tax liabilities, litigation is required. Other federal tax litigation claims may be related to refunds or possibly due to complex and unusual interpretations of tax regulations.

Araujo Law has extensive experience litigating federal tax claims.

To give our clients a comprehensive defense against tax litigation, Araujo law brings a combination of experience in both criminal and civil tax matters at the federal and state level. 

Where the IRS alleges you have committed civil tax fraud or criminal tax crimes, tax litigation often begins with an audit. Some tax cases cannot be resolved through dealing directly with the IRS while some tax matters can be resolved administratively. In certain cases, the best course of action is taking the tax controversy to court in order to get the best outcome. 

After other methods of resolution have failed,  taking tax controversies to court could be your only hope so make sure to do that with an aggressive and experienced tax attorney – Tax Relief Pros. 

To seek the best outcome for our clients is our number one priority.

A business that has employees is required by law to collect and remit those collected taxes to the IRS and to the State on behalf of all employees.  Failing to pay payroll taxes on time, could cause the IRS to impose high interest and penalties. You could face serious charges if you choose not to pay the penalties and interest.  Usually, most payroll taxes are due the day after an employee’s check has been disbursed.  But payroll remittance schedules do vary.  What is important to remember is that you must deposit payroll tax according to your agreed upon dates with the government.  If these payments are delayed then penalties and fees will start to add up.

There are a number of ways that payroll tax problems can occur; a long time trusted CPA or accountant fails to remit them, your payroll company failed to remit them, there was some internal employee charged with managing the remittance and they don’t, there were cash flow problems, or you were uneducated on the need to remit and simply didn’t.  Part of our process is to not only defend you in an audit, but subsequent education to avoid future non-compliance is part of what we do.  We don’t want you in trouble again.  We are here to help with the current problem and prevent future ones!
