Our firm provides skilled tax counsel to all types of business organizations, individual taxpayers, and professionals throughout the New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia regions, as well as across the United States and around the world. We are a dedicated tax law firm focused on achieving optimal results for our clients in every tax law matter that we handle.
As former Internal Revenue Service trial attorneys, our legal team has first-hand knowledge of how the IRS initiates and manages audits and we use this knowledge to advise our clients throughout all phases of the process. When clients are under IRS audit our attorneys take the time to carefully review all financial and business records associated with the audit.
We keep in constant contact with our clients and support and counsel them through all audit proceedings. Every New Jersey IRS audit attorney at our firm appreciates that audits can be overwhelming and we take all the time necessary to ensure that our clients fully understand their legal rights and obligations throughout the entire process.
Internal Revenue Service Audits
The IRS conducts audits in order to verify that individual taxpayers and businesses have accurately reported their income, expenses and deductions to the IRS in accordance with U.S. laws and regulations. When a taxpayer is under audit, the IRS may be examining a number of different taxes ranging from individual income and business income taxes to employment and estate and gift taxes.
The outcome of the audit will depend upon what the IRS discovers during its examination of the taxpayer’s records and financial information. In the event the IRS makes an adverse determination, the taxpayer could be subject to a wide range of penalties in addition to paying the tax underpayment and any interest owed.
When a taxpayer does not agree with the IRS’ determination, the taxpayer can work with a skilled New Jersey IRS audit attorney at our firm to file an appeal with the IRS Office of Appeals. Our legal team has extensive experience representing taxpayers who have elected to appeal unfavorable determinations through the IRS appeals process.
We understand how the appeals process works and have developed a strong record of successfully resolving adverse determinations for taxpayers across the U.S., including business and individuals located in the New York/New Jersey region. Our attorneys are also highly skilled in negotiating tax liability settlements with the IRS through the Offer in Compromise Program (OIC), often resulting in a payment that is less than the total tax owed.
The attorneys at Thorn Law Group appreciate that litigation can be a long and costly battle. We attempt to settle our clients’ tax issues with the IRS at the audit level or through the IRS Office of Appeals process. However, we know that there are times when pursuing a matter in court may be in the best interest of our clients. In these situations our attorneys are well-positioned to litigate our clients’ cases in the United States Tax Court and the other federal courts that hear tax law matters.
