Retaining the services of an experienced and knowledgeable Baltimore tax attorney is imperative for taxpayers who are struggling with tax debt or problems dealing with the Internal Revenue Service. In order to become a tax lawyer, one requires many years of study, training and hands-on experience. The Baltimore tax lawyers at Frost & Associates are CPAs and attorneys who have a thorough knowledge of federal, state and local tax laws and can help you resolve any issues that arise with regard to local, state, federal or international taxation laws.
Most taxpayers are not aware of their options, especially when they are struggling to make tax payments or when they accumulate significant tax debt. This is often because they feel extremely anxious or intimidated when it comes to dealing with the IRS. This type of anxiety could lead to tremendous stress and could even affect your relationships and life in general.
The aura of fear attached to the IRS causes individuals to meekly comply with the agency’s demands. Many don’t even know that they have an option to negotiate with the IRS or may even be able to settle their tax debt by paying a fraction of what they owe. Some taxpayers may simply put off making their payments or ignore letters and warnings from the IRS. This often digs a deeper hole for taxpayers getting them even deeper in debt. In some cases, individuals may end up facing criminal tax evasion charges and even jail time.
We can offer the professional help you need to make the best possible decisions with your tax debt. Our goal is not only to provide you with legal representation and help you come with a plan of action to pay off your tax debt but also to help equip you with the tools you need to avoid such a situation in the future.
Here are some of the tax services we provide to our clients in Baltimore:
IRS tax audits and appeals: Our experienced lawyers can help create a buffer between you and the IRS if you are facing a tax audit. We are certified public accountants and forensic accountants who are well versed in reconstructing expenses and presenting to the auditor in a format that is logical and intelligible. We have been successful in resolving IRS tax audits with limited records or no records and receipts at all, and we can help you achieve similar results. We also handle appeals.
International tax matters: Complying with foreign account requirements can become extremely complex. If you are no longer in compliance with these tax-reporting laws, you may be wondering if you should participate in one of IRS’s limited-amnesty programs. We can help you determine the best course of action for you, given the specifics of your case.
State tax issues: There are a number of tax issues that could arise at the state level such as sales tax, income tax, property tax, unemployment tax and withholding tax. Maryland taxing authorities can be challenging to deal with and in some cases, could be even more aggressive and intimidating than the IRS when it comes to tax collections. We can help you find solutions to your state tax problems.
IRS tax litigation: Your IRS civil litigation may be conducted in tax court, U.S. district court, bankruptcy court or at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Regardless of where your IRS tax issue is being adjudicated, our attorneys can help equip you with the facts you need to protect your rights and obtain the best possible outcome.
Criminal tax matters: Whether you are being charged with tax fraud, tax evasion or other tax-related crimes, our attorneys can help build a solid defense strategy in your case. The consequences of a criminal conviction could include jail time and hefty fines.
