Bailey Glasser's tax controversy attorneys are here to help clients navigate disputes with the IRS and state tax authorities against tax-related claims and lawsuits including allegations of tax evasion, fraudulent tax returns, or failure to pay taxes. Our decades of experience vests us with a deep understanding of tax laws, regulations, and compliance issues; a deep knowledge of the procedural and substantive aspects of tax litigation; and the common-sense aspects of knowing how to work with powerful federal and state agencies to protect your interests while seeking to minimize your tax liabilities.
We understand that the prospect of owing more money, facing legal consequences, or undergoing a lengthy and intrusive audit and potentially even litigation is stressful and time-consuming. We will stand with you throughout the process.
The approach we take for each client is based on their unique situation. Our goal is to always endeavor to resolve a client’s case at the earliest possible time with the best possible terms, and to develop strong working relationships with the tax authorities at issue to keep the process as smooth and predictable as possible.
