New York Tax Litigation Attorney
New York, often recognized as the world's financial epicenter, epitomizes ambition, innovation, and resilience. From Manhattan's majestic skyscrapers to Brooklyn's vibrant streets, the city thrives as a nexus of businesses, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. Amid this bustling backdrop, New York's residents confront many opportunities and challenges. One of the most intricate of these is navigating the federal tax challenges inherent to operating in such a distinguished locale. Whether you're a tech startup, a Wall Street stalwart, or an individual navigating the complexities of federal tax regulations, the journey can appear daunting.
Navigating a dispute with the IRS does not always have to require stepping into the courtroom. Many times, taxpayers and the IRS can find common ground, crafting resolutions without the need for federal tax litigation. However, when faced with federal tax audit results that don't seem fair, you're presented with two stark choices: either accept the IRS's judgment or stand up and defend your rights through federal tax litigation.
Federal Tax litigation is the method by which civil tax disputes, which may sometimes encompass underlying criminal tax matters, are presented, reviewed, and adjudicated in the appropriate legal venue. Various legal forums, such as the U.S. Tax Court, which is exclusively devoted to federal tax disputes; the U.S. District Court, where tax and other federal issues are deliberated; and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, which addresses tax disputes in the context of bankruptcy, play pivotal roles in this process.
It's essential to remember that despite its vast resources, the IRS often misinterprets the facts or the law in a way that leads to additional tax, penalties and interest being erroneously assessed. If you don't challenge their determination, you bear the financial consequences of their potential oversights and misunderstandings. So, when you believe the stakes are high and the IRS's decision is questionable, it's not just about accepting their verdict or fighting back—it's about ensuring fairness and justice in a system where even the mighty IRS can err.
The mere thought of challenging the IRS, with its formidable array of agents and prosecutors, can be daunting. Most taxpayers' instinctive reaction to a grave tax notification is to seek a swift and economical resolution. Unfortunately, a rapid resolution to the tax dispute may not be possible regarding allegations involving large IRS tax debts, alleged tax fraud, or corporate tax issues. In such nuanced scenarios, the most practical option may be to initiate tax litigation by suing the IRS with the help of a seasoned dual-licensed Tax Litigation Attorney and CPA.

Understanding Federal Civil Tax Litigation
Civil tax controversies at the federal level often commence with a tax audit, assessment, and collection activities initiated by the IRS or taxpayers filing refund claims. The process often follows an IRS tax audit that included a meticulous review of the taxpayer’s financial records to identify discrepancies. If issues are detected, the IRS proposes adjustments to the taxpayer's returns. Subsequently, the taxpayer receives an examination report detailing these adjustments and a notification of their right to appeal within a 30-day window.
During this pivotal 30-day appeal period, taxpayers can challenge the IRS’s proposed alterations. This stage typically involves a conference with an IRS Appeals Officer, necessitating filing a formal written protest by the taxpayer. In this document, taxpayers must clearly articulate their disagreements with the proposed adjustments, providing substantiation for each point of contention. This appeal stage is crucial, serving as a platform for taxpayers to voice their disputes regarding the IRS’s adjustments to their federal tax returns.
If the 30-day letter elicits no response, or if the IRS Appeals Office and the taxpayer fail to reach an agreement, a notice of deficiency is dispatched to the taxpayer. This notice starts a 90-day timeframe for the taxpayer to petition the U.S. Tax Court. Inaction during these 90 days results in the IRS finalizing the assessment based on the notice of deficiency, irrespective of the accuracy of the proposed adjustments. The civil tax litigation process demands a comprehensive understanding of federal tax laws and careful navigation through procedural complexities.
Navigating the nuanced terrain of federal civil tax litigation requires a profound understanding of substantive federal tax laws and strategic insight in engaging with revenue agents, devising tax audit mitigation strategies, and pursuing administrative and judicial appeals.

How Can Criminal Exposure Arise in Federal Tax Litigation?
Criminal tax exposure can arise in Federal Tax Litigation when there are suspicions of tax-related crimes at the federal level. Such fears often stem from tax audits that have proceeded to the appeals or chief counsel’s office, particularly if issues like tax evasion, fraudulent tax return filings, or concealment of foreign assets are identified. Tax Audits and criminal tax investigations involve meticulous examinations by the IRS. The taxpayer's financial records and tax returns are scrutinized during these examinations to uncover possible unlawful activities.
The IRS employs advanced data analytics and forensic accounting techniques, often collaborating with other law enforcement agencies, to accurately identify and investigate criminal activity & tax evasion. 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 possible imprisonment, depending on the nature and severity of the crime.
Because of the complexity of federal tax law, especially in the face of a criminal tax charge, speaking with an experienced dual-licensed Tax Litigation Attorney and CPA can help you respond to de-escalate potential criminal tax charges and help you best understand your posture coming out of a civil tax audit and into federal tax litigation.
