Why Hire a Tax Attorney?

When facing the IRS, it is important to consider whom you will trust to resolve the problem - a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or an experienced taxation lawyer? While a CPA may be capable of providing informative advice regarding your financial status and the matter at hand, a tax law attorney can provide honest advice, informative answers and practical solutions informed by a deep understanding of the Internal Revenue Code and regulations (including the ambiguous areas which can be disputed). Tax attorney Paul Ambrose prepares clients for what to expect from the IRS and how to best to proceed.
