Tax attorneys are lawyers who specialize in the complex and technical field of tax law. They’re best for handling complex, technical and legal issues associated with your tax situation. A tax attorney can step in after you have a problem, but consulting with one in advance can also help you avoid problems.
Your tax relief attorney can communicate with the IRS on your behalf, be present during your audit and help negotiate a settlement, if necessary. Having experienced legal counsel helps ensure that you don’t overpay as a result of your audit.
While CPAs are authorized to represent clients in IRS disputes, they typically do not have the training or experience that a tax attorney would have when it comes to representing a client. Tax attorneys also offer one major benefit that a CPA does not offer- broad confidentiality protection regarding communications.
Attorneys must be licensed by a state court or state bar after having earned a law degree and passed the bar exam. Not only are attorneys a registered tax return preparer, they also can prepare a legal defense for a client involved in a tax-related court case, even for taxes they did not prepare.
