When an individual finds themselves in trouble with the IRS, they may be able to solve it themselves. However, with the complexity of U.S. tax law, the individual may find themselves better served in hiring a tax attorney to represent their case.

A tax attorney's area of expertise is, not surprisingly, tax; they deal strictly with tax-related matters and are of the utmost knowledge on all tax issues. Many people don't file their taxes due to financial problems and end up in serious trouble. The majority of these people are not knowledgeable about tax laws and postpone tax-related obligations, which can result in serious tax problems later on. The consequences can snowball into nearly unmanageable problems, but a tax attorney can make management possible.

Many small business owners consider their tax attorney to be as important as their accountant, and for good reason; often times a good tax attorney can assist in avoiding tax problems before they manifest. They are able to spot a potential problematic situation and advise the owner as to how to avoid it.

Tax laws in New Jersey are geared to supply income to the federal, state, and local governments. The laws do not, however, offer much protection for the residents of the state. Sure, there are homeowner relief acts, and domestic partner laws, but even those may require more than just a passing knowledge of tax law to comprehend. A New Jersey tax Attorney is just the person to use those laws to provide the protection that the laws do not. A New Jersey tax attorney can provide both offensive and defensive strategies for all types of tax issues.

A tax attorney is usually consulted after some sort of negative contact with either the government or tax collections agencies. Clients come into the office after receiving the notices of audit, seizure, fines, or even indictment. The tax attorney uses his intimate knowledge of the New Jersey tax laws and the Internal Revenues Service procedures to represent the clients interests. The attorney may have to represent the client in court; however, most tax cases are settled out of court. The tax attorney can usually negotiate for a lesser penalty, thereby saving the client's home from government seizures and liens, and greatly reducing the fines and tax penalties that the client will have to pay.

Defense of the taxpayers is a key part of a tax attorney's job, but not the only part. New Jersey tax attorneys can also double as tax planners helping individuals and businesses to outline their tax liabilities and ways in which to handle them. This includes employment tax and benefit planning. The attorney also handles estate planning, as New Jersey has both inheritance and estate taxes, despite the 2001 phase-out of the federal estate tax. The tax attorney also covers issues that extend from estate planning, such as will contests and the establishment of charitable foundations. They also handle international tax issues.

Tax issues can threaten a person's financial state and freedom. A New Jersey tax attorney can not only mount an effective defense, but also a very thorough offense to most any tax issue. It is therefore very important that the tax attorney is consulted for any regular or unforeseen tax situation. The New Jersey tax laws are very complex, and their interpretation requires an intimate knowledge and the skill to use it.

You want the attorney with the most experience in your situation, one with a long background of dealing with the state revenue department or the IRS. You can often find tax attorneys that are former employees of the IRS. Their former position gives them intimate knowledge of the workings in the agency, and they may have some much-needed contacts. Let their added experience benefit your case.
