Orange County Tax Litigation & IRS Defense Firm

Wilson Tax Law Group is a boutique Orange County tax law firm that represents clients with civil and criminal tax matters before the IRS, California Franchise tax Board, Board of Equalization, Employment Development Department, Department of Tax and Fee Administration and local tax authorities. Wilson Tax Law Group is comprised exclusively of former IRS, California Franchise Tax Board, and Assistant US Attorneys. With more than 30 years years of combined legal experience, Wilson Tax Law Group is dedicated to providing the highest standard of legal representation for our clients and their tax matters. Our clients include individuals, businesses,  corporations, partnerships, owners, LLC’s, S-corporations, estates, fiduciaries, transferees, attorneys, tax professionals, and other “responsible persons” targeted by the federal, state, and local tax authorities.
Often, our representation begins when you or your company are involved in tax audits, appeals, collections, liens, foreclosure actions, criminal tax investigations (grand jury matters), or are facing civil or criminal tax litigation. As former IRS attorneys we provide expertise regarding substantive tax laws, dealing with revenue agents, formulating audit strategies, and pursuing administrative or judicial appeals and defending against IRS collection actions. At the federal level, resolving a client’s civil tax controversy may require discussions with the IRS, a written appeal to and discussions with the Appeals Office, or, potentially, litigation in the United States Tax Court, District Courts, Court of Federal Claims, US Bankruptcy Court and appellate courts. Although litigation is usually the option of last resort for most of our clients, if needed our legal team is well-suited to provide experienced, aggressive and skillful representation in court.  Tax Attorneys at Wilson Tax Law Group have handled more than a 1000 tax lawsuits in various federal courts. But the best results can, and should, begin a lot sooner. For that reason our representation includes advising you on the tax aspects of business transactions and how they should be reported on tax returns to avoid tax problems or place you in the best position on the occasion you win the “audit lottery.”

Although people often come to tax attorneys in Orange County looking for the best way to resolve civil tax controversies, our background in tax prosecution and defense uniquely situates us to help our clients avoid potential criminal tax liability, an aspect often overlooked by other tax professionals. In some cases, this may mean reviewing a transaction before it occurs, handling a delicate tax audit, or immediate FBAR (foreign bank account reports) compliance or offshore and domestic voluntary disclosures (OVDP). Other times it means competent and zealous criminal tax defense concerning allegations of tax evasion or other willful tax offenses.  In those times, our firm offers unique and dedicated experience in criminal tax defense, including criminal investigations by the IRS, the US Justice Department and US Attorney’s Office, or state taxing authorities, and in criminal trials, sentencing proceedings, and appeals.
At Wilson Tax Law Group, we treat our clients and their families, well, like family. When you need help with your tax problems, we always look out for our client’s best interest.
