An attorney who represents clients involved in a tax controversy should possess a thorough understanding of the complex tax laws. Most attorneys can advise their clients on tax preparation matters and tax reduction plans. However, very few attorneys can effectively handle a tax litigation issue.
If you are involved in a tax controversy, you should contact an experienced tax attorney immediately. SM Law Group has represented several clients in California and we can fight your case in federal district court, US tax court, bankruptcy court, or state court.

Business Tax Issues Specific to California
Taxpayers in California face some unique challenges. The tax laws of the state often give rise to commercial tax controversies. But thanks to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, you are not without defense. This bill is overseen by the California State Board of Equalization (BOE). It affords certain rights to taxpayers in California with respect to penalties, audits, and other tax problems. During the audit, the taxpayer is entitled to an honest review of their account books. If you do not agree with the findings made by the auditor, your tax attorney will try to work out a solution by meeting with the auditor and you. If these meetings do not help, you can appeal the audit.
