Why Should I Hire a Tax Attorney
Can I represent myself?
While taxpayers are allowed to represent themselves before the IRS, many taxpayers seeking tax relief find dealing with the IRS frightening, frustrating, time-consuming, intimidating or all of the above. So they make the decision to hire a tax resolution professional to contact and negotiate with the IRS on their behalf.
An experienced attorney who concentrates on providing tax relief to individuals and businesses can help resolve tax problems at both the state and federal level. They can help taxpayers secure offer in compromise settlements, IRS payment plans, hardship status, penalty abatement, innocent spouse relief, release of liens or levies, prepare and file un-filed years of taxes, and many other tax settlements. Resolution of tax problems can be extremely complicated.
What are the Benefits of Hiring a Professional Attorney?
There are many advantages to hiring a knowledgeable tax attorney, but the greatest advantage is peace of mind and knowing that you are not taking unnecessary risks with your personal and financial freedom. Going in front of the IRS without an attorney is like defending yourself in a criminal trial. Without legal training or detailed knowledge of the legal system, you are at a huge disadvantage.
Many attorneys have heard the wise old saying, "He who acts as his own attorney has a fool for a client." Even if you can't afford to pay your back taxes or have years of unfiled delinquent tax returns, an attorney can help you settle your IRS debt by increasing your chances of resolving your back taxes and helping you qualify for some collection alternative.
Additionally, an experienced attorney can not only help you resolve IRS problems from the past, but they can also help you achieve permanent tax relief, making sure you don't run into tax problems in the future.
Why You Need an Experienced Attorney when Battling the IRS.
Not getting professional tax help can be costly. To get the tax relief you need, you need to leverage the specialized knowledge that only an income tax attorney can provide.
In many instances, retaining a professional and reliable attorney will often result in more affordable IRS payment plans and lesser tax penalties. However, when you owe back taxes and you need an attorney's help to get the tax relief you want, the issue at stake is more than just what's on your balance sheet.

How can I afford to hire an Attorney with all my problems?
As a colleague once said, “how can you afford NOT to hire an Attorney?” You cannot just let the IRS have its way with your bank accounts, wages or property. Don't be penny wise but pound foolish. By not hiring a tax attorney or tax resolution specialist you can save a little amount of money, but if you are not able to negotiate a settlement with the IRS, you are not only losing money but you will also have to pay higher fines. Without the knowledge of a tax attorney you may lose affordable IRS compromises, payment plans and lesser tax penalties. Unsolved tax problems including back taxes and other IRS problems can drain you financially and emotionally. An attorney will help you stay afloat with all necessary expenses and keep the IRS from forcing collections on you.
