We do more than just resolve civil tax audits. Our background in tax prosecution and defense uniquely situates us to help you avoid potential criminal liability, an aspect often missed by other tax firms. Joseph Wilson founded this firm to provide complete, sophisticated, and diligent tax representation to clients exclusively by attorneys who know the government's procedures from the inside-out. Some tax firms advertise their IRS experience to bring you in but then, when it comes time to do the job, they pass your case on to an inexperienced associate. Clients of the Wilson Tax Law Group are guaranteed to have their case handled by an attorney with real IRS experience.
