IRS Concedes 100% of Million Dollar Proposed Assessment Before Trial

This corporate taxpayer’s case had been pending in court for 1 year with another law firm before Wilson Tax Law Group took over.  The taxpayer fired the previous attorney when the attorney advised the taxpayer to concede to the entire tax liability in exchange for the IRS’s waiver of a 20% penalty.  There was only one problem: The taxpayer didn’t owe the taxes.  Although the taxpayer’s former attorney was a “former IRS attorney,” he lacked the tried and battle-tested trial experience of the attorneys at Wilson Tax Law Group and the taxpayer hired Wilson Tax Law Group to take the IRS to task. 
Wilson Tax Law Group looked at the underlying issues, obtained a last minute continuance of the trial date, went through all financial and tax records, and examined tax law.  We put together supporting documents, created an entirely new legal position, did a thorough analysis, and showed why the government theory was wrong.  This was a complicated tax analysis and involved an understanding of different types of complex accounting methods, tax law and federal litigation, since the client’s company had been legitimately using difference types of financial accounting methods for various purposes. 
We worked to reconstruct the financial statements, worked as a team with the in-house and outside accountants for the company and were successful in obtaining a complete concession by the IRS of the proposed $1 million in pending tax liabilities.

Service Profile of the Month:
Criminal Tax & White Collar Defense

Wilson Tax Law Group represents individuals, business owners, corporations and tax preparers who are targets or subjects of criminal tax and other types of financial investigations by the IRS and by the United States Department of Justice, including the Tax Division and local United States Attorney’s Offices.

Representation can include dealing with covert investigations, searches, surveillance, stings, grand jury subpoenas, and other investigatory tools that the IRS uses to investigate alleged criminal tax cases. Wilson Tax Law Group represents clients in administrative and grand jury investigations and trials in United States District Courts, as well as in IRS civil audits which have the potential to be referred to the Criminal Investigation Division. This can include asset seizure and forfeiture proceedings.

A significant part of the criminal tax practice involves negotiating with the United States Department of Justice, regarding whether criminal charges will be pursued, which charges will be pursued and, if appropriate for the client, negotiating the best possible plea agreement. Wilson Tax Law Group also represents clients in appeals from criminal cases.

In addition, Wilson Tax Law Group represents clients prior to investigation or prosecution in assessing whether to make a voluntary disclosure to mitigate or eliminate the possibility of criminal investigation or prosecution. Through those initiatives, our clients have mitigated or eliminated their criminal prosecution risk and, where appropriate, reduced their financial penalty exposures for income tax penalties and FBAR penalties.
