Fight The Inevitable

As businesses grow, their problems become more complex and their liabilities increase.

One of the dreaded “Two Certain Things in Life”, Taxes encompass a vast range of complicated and convoluted legal matters. We understand these issues, and we will work with you to carefully explain your tax situation and analyze your options. We deal with tax issues relevant to both individuals and companies in Petaluma, Sonoma County, and throughout northern California. These services include:

Audits and Administrative Appeals

We can assist in tax audits and administrative appeals to assert your rights before the IRS and the State of California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) taxing authorities. We can work with IRS revenue agents and IRS appeals officers and appear before Tax Court Judges on your behalf.

Tax Litigation

We can provide skilled and aggressive legal representation for a wide range of tax litigation matters in the United States Tax Court for both simple and complex tax disputes.

Penalty Abatement

If you have an unpaid or overdue tax payment, penalties and interest will accrue. We may be able to help you obtain a reduction or waiver of the penalties that you need to pay to the IRS, state and/or local tax authorities.

Collection Representation

We can provide representation to you in both IRS and FTB collection actions. We can obtain tax penalty abatements based upon hardships, negotiate currently not collectible status and set up Installment Payment Agreements with the IRS, state and local taxing authorities. We can also advise, prepare and negotiate Offers-in-Compromise with both the State and the IRS to try and settle your tax obligations for lesser amounts based on your financial hardship.
