In one case, a taxpayer had neglected to file tax returns for an extended period of 15 years. Seeking help, they turned to a CPA, who prepared and filed all 15 returns without considering the IRS’s requirements. The taxpayer was left with a staggering tax liability of several hundred thousand dollars. Realizing that simply cutting a check was not a feasible option, the taxpayer contacted McCauley Law office. Our experienced attorneys discovered that the CPA had filed significantly more returns than required, leading to additional financial burdens. To regain tax compliance, our firm typically constructs an agreement with the IRS to file the last six tax returns. However, in this case, the CPA’s actions proved costly, totaling over $300,000. If you have unfiled tax returns, it is essential to seek the exclusive representation of an attorney dedicated to resolving IRS matters. Many accountants may prioritize filing more returns to increase their income, often overlooking the most favorable resolution for the taxpayer.
