Within the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, is the right for taxpayers to retain an authorized representative of their choice when dealing with the IRS. Taxpayers also have the right to seek assistance from a Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic if they cannot afford representation.
Representatives must meet a set of required credentials and have permission to practice before the IRS or state. The types of appropriate representatives include attorneys, certified public accountants (or CPAs), and enrolled agents.
A representative will assist a taxpayer by preparing all documents requested by the IRS, attending all meetings on their behalf (unless the taxpayer is specifically requested to present themselves), and handling all correspondence between the taxpayer and the IRS.
Where is the Right to Representation Applicable?
A tax representative can be instrumental in your battle with the IRS. While you can go about handling your case on your own, the benefits of having a representative on your side can exponentially increase your chances of a successful outcome.
You don’t have to be in dire circumstances, or even in financial trouble, before finding a legal representative. A representative can be a preventative measure.
Should you choose to find a representative in TaxRise, we will provide you with an attorney and the bonus of our industry knowledge, experience, and resources.
Below are some instances for which it may be a good idea to partner with TaxRise.
Legal representation helps you negotiate with the IRS during and after an audit. An effective attorney can help settle your liability for less than you owe by making an offer in compromise, seeking a penalty abatement, or requesting a payment plan.
Negotiating with the IRS
Often the language used in tax situations and the overall complexity of the IRS bureaucracies can make it difficult to know what to say and to whom. However, partnering with a tax attorney and gaining the power of attorney, allows your skilled and knowledgeable representative to negotiate with the IRS on your behalf.
Receiving an IRS Notice or CP
The IRS sends notices, also known as CPs in IRS jargon, to inform taxpayers about hundreds of different matters; anything from an error on a return to tax bill reminders. Knowing how to proceed after receiving such a notice can be confusing and require the assistance of a qualified tax attorney.
Occasionally, the IRS is mandated to pursue criminal charges. In such cases, you need to hire a tax attorney. Tax evasion and tax fraud are the most common causes of criminal IRS investigations. To avoid or reduce prison sentences and hefty fines, consider hiring an attorney.
