Problem 1: Non-Compliance

I have unfiled returns and/or a large deficiency with the IRS or the Oregon Department of Revenue. To mitigate the risk of criminal fraud and/or evasion, we assist with the preparation of unfiled returns and subsequent negotiation with the IRS/Oregon Department of Revenue to attempt settlement of the balance owed.

Problem 2: Audit Defense, Appeal and Litigation

When individuals and businesses are faced with an IRS or state tax audit they feel a level of anxiety or overwhelmed with the process. Even a small oversight in an audit can cost you dearly in the form of lost appeal rights, lost rights to a refund, higher taxes and penalties, and potential levy. We are not just your advocate and confidante, but your advisor to see you through the complex administrative and legal process of tax controversy defense.

Problem 3: Personal Responsibility for Failure to Pay Employment Taxes

Any person responsible for withholding, depositing, or remitting payroll taxes to the IRS or state can be held personally liable for failure to remit. If you are contacted and asked to be interviewed for potential responsibility, you should never attend such an interview without representation. In such an interview, the taxing authority may be seeking additional evidence to assert civil or criminal fraud.

I received an IRS notice of an audit and was stressed out. Jonathan clearly explained what I could expect and how to prepare for the audit meeting. My audit issues were quickly resolved—and with a far more favorable outcome than I had anticipated.
