Effective Representation In Tax Disputes

If you find yourself in a dispute with the IRS or a state revenue department, it makes sense to get help from an experienced attorney. When an audit notice or a collection action already has you on the defensive, you don't want to make matters even worse by ignoring the problem. Taxpayers have rights and there is often more than one possible resolution to any tax problem.

At Marsh, Higgins, Beaty & Hatch, P.C., our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to help you resolve the tax issue you face. We encourage you to call today to discuss your specific situation. We serve clients throughout the Vancouver, Washington, area.

What Type Of Tax Controversy Are You Involved In?

The federal tax code is notoriously complex. State codes in Washington and Oregon are also plenty long and potentially daunting. But there are a few basic types of disputes that often occur. Our firm focuses its tax practice on these disputes, which include:

  • Tax audits — An audit by the IRS or a state revenue agency must always been taken seriously. Even if you are only being asked to provide more information, you need to handle your response to an audit with care. Our law firm can take appropriate action on your behalf.
  • Tax debt — If you are unable to resolve your tax debt, you may find yourself subject to a tax lien, wage garnishment or some other type of collection action. Fortunately, there is more than one way to address this problem. We can guide you toward the solution that makes the most sense for you.
  • Tax liens — If you have unresolved tax debt, tax liens and distraint warrants are used by the government to claim an interest in your property in order to collect the debt. Our attorneys can help you take steps designed to get rid of the lien.

Our tax practice also extends to other key tax issues, such as payroll taxes, estate tax and tax relief through the appropriate use of tax credits and deductions.
