Tax Attorney Representation
Whatever your tax issue, you can rely on The Law Offices of David W. Klasing for thorough tax representation and sound advice. With extensive professional tax, accounting and business consulting experience, we help businesses and individuals worldwide from our offices in Irvine, Orange County, and Los Angeles. Our law firms offers the following tax attorney representation services which encompass the following:
Individual and Business Tax Services
As an experienced tax attorney, we prepare individual income tax returns, all business tax returns – Corporate (1120), (C and S), Partnership (1065) and LLC tax filings, Employment Tax and Sales Tax returns, Estate Tax returns (709 and 706) and trust (1041) returns. We also specialize in servicing non-filers of individual and business tax returns with an emphasis on reducing criminal tax exposure and in assisting with the subsequent Federal and State collection activity.
Because we are aware of the regulations and reporting requirements governing businesses and individuals, I can help prevent problems with your returns and keep you in compliance.
Also, my dual perspective as both a tax attorney and a CPA allows me to provide highly efficient and accurate comprehensive tax preparation services no matter how complex your return may be. This allows you to be secure in the knowledge that both your tax liabilities and risk of audit are kept to an absolute minimum.
In addition, my experience as a CPA coupled with my masters degree in taxation enables me to offer strong and well informed advice on any business tax preparation issue or liability limiting strategy that other accountants often overlook, minimizing your tax liabilities and maximizing your bottom line.
Tax Attorney Representation for IRS and State Issues
I help clients manage the audit process before the Internal Revenue Service, the California Franchise Tax Board and the Board of Equalization.
If you are facing an audit, I will be your tax attorney representation to fight to protect your interests and reduce or eliminate tax penalties. Before I became a tax lawyer, I spent eight years as an auditor. I have valuable insight and a firm grasp of the audit process. From my experience as an auditor, I can also tell you that representing yourself in an audit places you at a severe disadvantage.
Auditors are typically aggressive by nature and trained in the art of interrogation and investigation. Even if you believe that you have done nothing wrong or that not much is at stake, an auditor may still potentially reach a highly detrimental determination that is inconsistent or unreasonable with the facts and circumstances of your case, or one that is based upon an erroneous interpretation of the law. In the worst case, an auditor may even interpret seemingly innocent statements as a criminal admission. Therefore, it is imperative that if you have even the smallest suspicion that you may be under criminal investigation or open to criminal liability that you obtain the assistance of an experienced criminal tax attorney immediately.
Complicated tax issues can accompany estate plans, mergers and acquisitions and business entity selection which increase your need for tax attorney representation. I will educate you about the tax implications of decisions, and I can help save you and your business money.
In estate planning, I can help you limit the amount of your estate lost to taxes when your assets are transferred to your beneficiaries, and prevent potential disputes among family members concerning the division of your estate.
In mergers and acquisitions, I can help you address tax issues during planning and negotiation and move the deal forward.
In business entity selection, I can help you avoid potentially costly entity selection and formation mistakes while helping you protect your personal assets and limit your liability.
Experienced Tax Litigation
In tax litigation, I will be the tax attorney representation to represent clients facing disputes with state and federal taxing authorities.
I help people resolve controversies involving back taxes and other tax problems, including potential criminal tax issues. If you have been audited and are unhappy with the results, I can help you appeal an IRS decision and negotiate an Offer in Compromise.
If you are facing potential criminal liability, it is imperative that you engage my services early in the civil investigation process before a criminal investigation is started. Throughout the duration of our relationship, you can rely on me to help minimize your stress. I know dealing with tax officials can be nerve-wracking, and as your tax attorney representation, I will keep you informed about the process so you know what to expect.
