What is Taxation Law? Assistance From Tax Attorney

Taxation law is the study of a process whereby charges are imposed on individuals or property by a federal or state government (or functional equivalent) to raise funds for public purposes.

Why Use a Tax Attorney

Tax attorneys can help with many complex tax issues just like a CPA or an Enrolled Agent. However, there are benefits to using tax attorneys:
Attorney-Client Privilege

Tax attorneys are the only type of tax professional that are legally exempt from being forced to testify against you if the IRS were to bring you to court. Other types of tax professionals, such as a CPA, can be forced to testify against you. There is some confidentiality with other tax professionals, but it does not apply to criminal cases. If you have been accused of fraud or are being audited, it is best to hire a tax attorney for this reason.

Legal Analysis

A tax attorney can give you other options that a CPA or enrolled agent most likely would not give you. For instance, based on your situation, a tax attorney may recommend that you file bankruptcy. Many times, this attorney (or another attorney in the office) could perform this service for you. Also, tax attorneys could advise you on how to protect your assets or the tax implications of your estate planning.

Negotiation Skills

Most attorneys have been trained to negotiate. It is possible that your tax problem may require a significant amount of negotiation. Instead of having a CPA and then hiring an attorney, you can skip a step by using a tax attorney directly.
