Cape Girardeau Tax Disputes Attorney
Missouri Tax Appeal Attorney
You have gotten a letter from the Internal Revenue Service. You feel rather intimidated. Who wouldn't? But in our experience handling taxpayer audits and appeals, the IRS is incorrect more often than it is correct. The IRS can lose documents or make mathematical mistakes just like everybody else. You do not have to simply pay what it says you owe, in hopes that it just goes away.
Put an Attorney and CPA on Your Side
Kelvin Birk is an attorney as well as a certified public accountant, with more than 20 years of experience in that field. This expertise is invaluable when creating legal documents that involve tax issues or defending against federal or state charges involving tax controversies. Kelvin is one of very few attorneys in southeast Missouri who is also a CPA.
Birk Law Firm represents individuals or businesses against the IRS and the Missouri Department of Revenue and local taxing authorities. The tax dispute may involve real estate taxes, property taxes, commercial property taxes, business or individual taxpayer audits or collections of income taxes.
Defend Against Tax Collection Actions
The IRS can be very aggressive and intimidating when they are attempting to collect taxes and penalties. Often, these amounts are partly or entirely incorrect. Sometimes the penalties can be removed. Our approach is to utilize all options for each particular case and try to get the entire amount eliminated. Alternatively, we try to get the amount reduced and paid in an amount you can afford.
Help With a Notice or an Audit
The IRS will start with a friendly notice that you owe money. It will state the amount you owe and expect you to pay it. If you do not, it will attach it to real estate or property and start to charge interest and penalties. It is possible to prove that these notices are invalid by proving its methods or information to be wrong; for example, by proving that the data-matching process it used for your 1099 was incorrect. Let's get it removed or settled before it gets out of hand.
Help With Appeals
A lawyer and a CPA, Kelvin Birk has successfully appealed many IRS decisions. We are not afraid to go up the ladder or to create a brief, outlining why the auditor is incorrect. We can help throughout the appeals process.
Help With Offers in Compromise
The IRS Offer in Compromise program allows qualified individuals with an unpaid tax debt to negotiate a settled amount that is less than the total owed to clear the debt. A taxpayer must qualify for one of three conditions: doubt as to liability, doubt as to collectibility, or extenuating or special circumstances.
