IRS Audits and Appeals
Skilled Legal Counsel in IRS Administrative Appeals
Unfortunately not all tax issues can be resolved at the IRS audit level. In these circumstances, a skilled lawyer at Thorn Law Group will navigate the client through the process of making a successful appeal to the IRS Office of Appeals (“IRS Appeals”).
The IRS Appeals is a neutral body within the IRS that is dedicated to resolving disputes between taxpayers and the IRS without the need for litigation. The attorneys at Thorn Law Group have experienced great success resolving unfavorable audits utilizing the IRS Appeals process and negotiating offers in compromise (OIC) on behalf of our clients. The OIC program allows a taxpayer to negotiate a settled amount with the IRS that is less than the full amount owed, giving the taxpayer a fresh start.
The attorneys at Thorn Law Group are committed to achieving the best possible result for each of our clients. Our experience as former IRS attorneys provides us with a unique appreciation of the procedures and options employed by IRS appeals officers. This expertise allows each IRS lawyer at our Washington DC firm to evaluate cases to determine when an appeal is appropriate and to successfully represent clients throughout the IRS appeals process. When necessary, the attorneys at Thorn Law Group are prepared to aggressively litigate unsuccessful cases before the U.S. Tax Court and other federal courts.
