In any case, it is important to conduct proper due diligence to ensure that you are representing your client to the fullest extent of the law, and putting them in the best possible position given their circumstances. This client came to our firm after working with another attorney who was more interested in appeasing the IRS than negotiating a deal that served his client well. The IRS was forcing this client to sell his assets and pay his back tax debt in full. Once he had sold pretty much everything, he decided that he had enough and wanted to seek outside counsel and after reviewing his case we determined that he qualified for penalty abatement.
Our firm was able to successfully abate $40,290 in penalties, which paid the remainder of the outstanding tax liabilities and left a surplus credit which resulted in the IRS cutting our client a refund check. At McCauley Law Offices, P.C., we are always here to discuss your circumstances and determine which option is best for you and your family and business. If you think you may qualify for a penalty abatement, or you are unhappy with your current representation, contact us today!
