Federal tax controversy representation is a substantial part of our overall practice. Our objective is to resolve tax disputes as early in the process as possible and without the need for litigation. This is because the term “controversies” is not synonymous with litigation, thought that is one way of handling a tax controversy. To the contrary, there are many avenues for resolving tax disputes without the necessity of resorting to litigation. We have the breadth of knowledge and experience to make full use of all of these less formal dispute resolution mechanisms to obtain favorable outcomes for our clients short of litigation.
