This is perhaps one of the most frequently asked questions we hear.
For most people, it is easy to think that they can handle their tax law issues on their own—especially when the person who contacted them from the IRS seems friendly. However, it is important to not be tricked into thinking that you can just deal with the IRS revenue office or tax auditor by yourself. Keep in mind that they are doing a job, and it is their job to collect your taxes. They are not there to represent your best interests; instead, they will be doing whatever they can to collect from you—as well as potentially collect penalties. In these situations, it is absolutely critical that you have a skilled San Diego IRS lawyer on your side who is there for you and who is there to protect your rights.
Can’t I Just Work with an Accountant?
You may be tempted into thinking you can hire only an accountant to help you sort through your tax issues, but we caution you before making that step. There are several ways that hiring a tax lawyer is more beneficial than just an accountant. One of the greatest benefits is that you will benefit from the attorney-client privilege, meaning that, in most cases, whatever you tell your lawyer cannot be later told to the IRS. While there are some client privileges in working with an accountant, it does not have the same scope and will not apply in criminal tax law cases if you are being accused of tax fraud. In some situations, accountants have even been forced to testify against their own clients.
