IRS and Georgia Tax Cases
- Audit Defense: The lawyers at our firm are frequently able to eliminate proposed tax assessments during the audit, minimizing the cost and stress for you.
- Administrative Appeals: If you are wrongly assessed tax, denied relief or subjected to collection activity, we can often resolve it favorably in the IRS administrative appeals process, without the need to move forward to litigation.
- Tax Litigation: We have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the tax litigation process with confidence.
- Offer in Compromise: We offer a complete analysis of whether you qualify for this program, in which you offer the IRS an amount that is less than what you owe. In some cases, this can save a client hundreds of thousands of dollars. In other cases, it will not be the best approach to resolve the liability.

- Levy / Garnishment: Our firm has extensive experience stopping levy of bank accounts, wages and other property.
