    What Triggers Tax Litigation?

    Tax litigation can arise from various issues related to tax compliance, ranging from minor inaccuracies to deliberate tax fraud.

    Are You Facing Problems with an Audit?

    Litigation commonly arises from an unfavorable audit report by the IRS where the IRS got either the law or the facts wrong. Complications can arise when the IRS identifies errors or inconsistencies in taxpayers’ tax returns or uncovers evidence of intentional tax evasion or other tax crimes.

    Have You Been Accused of Tax Fraud?

    Tax fraud involves deliberately attempting to dodge tax liabilities through false or misleading information. Tax fraud might entail:

    • Intentionally understating income.
    • Intentionally inflating deductions.
    • Intentionally claiming credits you do not qualify for.
    • Hiding unreported taxable offshore assets in undisclosed offshore accounts; and
    • Using other illegal methods to reduce tax liability.

    Are You Confronting Corporate Tax Issues?

    Corporations might need to engage in tax litigation related to transfer pricing, tax shelters, and executive compensations. Such corporate tax conflicts often involve complex legal and accounting issues, necessitating the help of a competent domestic and international tax litigation attorney.

    Do You Have Other Tax Controversies?

    Tax litigation may also originate from a range of other tax disputes, including:

    Can You Trust Our Advice?

We work closely with our clients to understand their situations and develop a tailored strategy to resolve their tax disputes most effectively.

    We are committed to providing our clients with transparent and candid advice throughout the litigation. We’ll inform and represent you accordingly if we determine that your case can be improved through appeals and litigation. However, we will not take on your case if there’s no realistic possibility of a more favorable outcome.

    Our unwavering commitment to our client’s needs and extensive understanding of tax law and litigation procedures make us the ideal choice for taxpayers dealing with tax controversies in Salt Lake City.

    Should You opt for Mediation or Litigation in Salt Lake City?

    Deciding the best action to address ongoing IRS disagreements can be challenging. Although assertive and often decisive, tax litigation could become lengthy and expensive. Thus, it’s worth exploring less drastic options like mediation before engaging in litigation.

    Could Mediation Be a More Beneficial Alternative?

    Unlike litigation, mediation encourages the involved parties to collaborate towards a mutually agreeable solution, aided by a proficient mediator. This approach is typically more informal, swift, and cost-effective than prosecuting a case. It provides participants with more personal input. Unlike a court-issued verdict, a mediation agreement isn’t legally binding.

    The IRS’s Appeals Office presents various mediation options under its Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program. Depending on your taxpayer status and how far along you are in the IRS process, you might be eligible for the following:

    • Compliance Assurance Process (CAP): For international and large businesses at the pre-filing stage;
    • Early Referral: For international and large businesses, small businesses, self-employed taxpayers, and tax-exempt and government entities at the examination stage;
    • Fast Track Mediation: For small businesses and self-employed taxpayers at the collection stage
    • Fast Track Settlement: Follows Early Referral Guidelines
    • Post-Appeals Mediation: For international and large businesses, small businesses, self-employed taxpayers, and tax-exempt and government entities at the appeals stage

    Is the IRS Appeals Process a Viable Option?

    The IRS Appeals process can provide an alternative way to settle tax disputes without litigation. This process usually involves the auditor, their manager, and an appeals officer. However, the auditor and their manager might be emotionally invested in the audit outcomes, potentially creating perceived bias.

    Alternatively, you can opt for the regular appeals process, which begins with filing a tax court petition. An appeals officer not involved in the initial audit independently reviews the taxpayer’s case. The appeals officer weighs the taxpayer’s arguments and supporting evidence and tries to resolve them, considering the IRS’s liability if the case goes to court.

    Why Trust the Tax Law Office of David W. Klasing to Manage Your Tax Litigation in Salt Lake City?

    In the bustling city of Salt Lake City, facing unfavorable tax conditions might seem like a losing battle. However, you’re not without options. You can either capitulate to the IRS’s demands or engage the skilled team at the Tax Law Offices of David W. Klasing to champion your cause.
