Tax controversies

Taxpayers sometimes make mistakes on their income tax returns, or they get bad advice from an accountant or tax preparation professional. Either way, if the IRS accuses the taxpayer of underpaying, the tax bill can be beyond his or her ability to pay.

Certified Tax Law Specialist In California

At Lawrence T. Ullmann, Attorney at Law, I help individuals, businesses and foreign entities in Silicon Valley stand up to the IRS. I am a certified tax law specialist and CPA who spent 17 years working for the IRS. If you are dealing with the negative results of an IRS tax audit, I will help you protect your rights and resolve the matter as quickly and inexpensively as possible.

As your tax lawyer, I will carefully examine the evidence to find out what you or your company actually owes in taxes, if anything. Often, the true amount of owed taxes is substantially lower than what the IRS claims.

A Unique Knowledge Of The Appeals Process

Negotiation is always an option in a tax dispute, but sometimes appealing the IRS decision makes more sense than a settlement. I worked at IRS for several years as an appeals officer, which is the person who acts as a sort of judge in tax controversy appeals. I know what an appeal is like from multiple perspectives and will plan your case accordingly.
