    What Does the Federal Tax Litigation Process Look Like?

    Tax litigation is a formalized legal process intended to address disputes that arise from federal tax-related issues. These issues can cover a broad spectrum, including audits, administrative appeals, and civil and criminal tax matters. Given the complex nature of tax law, it’s crucial to seek the advice of an experienced dual-licensed Tax Litigation Attorney and CPA. Our team can help you anticipate potential disputes and understand your position before proceeding with a tax audit.

    How Can Criminal Exposure Arise in Federal Tax Litigation?

    Criminal tax exposure can arise in Federal Tax Litigation where there are suspicions of tax-related crimes at the federal level stemming from an audit that has proceeded to appeals or chief counsel’s office, involving issues like tax evasion, fraudulent tax return filings, or hiding foreign assets. Audit’s and criminal tax investigations involve a thorough examination by the IRS, scrutinizing the taxpayer’s financial records and tax returns to uncover possible unlawful activities. Advanced data analytics and forensic accounting techniques are used, often in collaboration with other law enforcement agencies, to build a solid case. The case may be forwarded to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for prosecution if substantial evidence of criminal activity is uncovered. Criminal tax offenses carry hefty penalties, including fines, restitution, and possibly imprisonment, depending on the nature and severity of the crime.

    What Does Civil Tax Litigation Involve?

    Civil tax litigation usually commences at the end of an audit when the IRS attempts to make changes to the audited tax return. The taxpayer is given an examination report outlining these proposed modifications and a letter stating their right to challenge these changes within 30 days. This appeal often necessitates a meeting with an IRS Appeals Officer and submitting a formal written protest that details the taxpayer’s disagreement with the proposed changes, backed by their reasons for this dispute.

    What Are the Consequences if I Don’t Respond to a 30-Day Letter?

    If a taxpayer fails to respond to the 30-day letter or doesn’t reach an agreement with the IRS Appeals Office, they typically receive a notice of deficiency. This notice provides a 90-day filing window to petition the U.S. Tax Court. Ignoring this 90-day letter will result in assessing the amount stated in the notice of deficiency, even if the proposed changes were made erroneously. Comprehensive knowledge of the federal tax litigation process can ensure you’re well-prepared for every stage and understand the potential consequences of non-action.
