If you are in the middle of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax controversy that may need to be resolved in a courtroom, it is essential to get experienced legal representation in your corner to help prepare for the battle to come.
The team of Miami Tax Law Professionals at Frost & Associates, LLC serve a diverse range of individuals, families and businesses throughout Florida and across the country. We are dedicated to helping you successfully resolve your tax controversy.
Working Hard to Reach a Favorable Outcome
Our goal in every case is to quickly and efficiently reach a favorable outcome for our clients. The best way of accomplishing this is to settle cases administratively before they reach the litigation stage. However, this is not always a viable option. If we are unable to reach a favorable resolution in your case, we are prepared to put our skills and experience to work for you in federal court.
Dedicated Representation in all Courtroom Venues
Our attorneys will litigate your tax case in one of four courts, depending on the unique circumstances of your case:
- U.S. Tax Court: This is where the majority of tax cases are heard. Judges in this court have an extensive knowledge of U.S. tax law. Perhaps the biggest advantage to requesting a hearing in this forum is that taxpayers are not required to pay any tax assessments prior to the hearing.
- U.S. District Court: In order to be granted a hearing in this court, taxpayers must have exhausted all of the administrative options for resolving their case before filing a suit for a refund. In addition, unlike the U.S. Tax Court, taxpayers must pay the disputed tax before suing. However, this venue can be advantageous as it is the only court that gives you the option of a jury trial.
- U.S. Bankruptcy Court: If you or your business has filed for bankruptcy, this court may decide whether IRS tax assessments or IRS tax liens are valid. It may also determine whether or not your tax liabilities may be discharged as part of your bankruptcy filing.
- U.S. Court of Federal Claims: Based in Washington, D.C., this court may be the most favorable if you have already paid the disputed tax and wish to sue for a refund.
Whether your tax issue is resolved through negotiation or before a judge, you can rely on us to provide you with the facts and advice you need to make sound decisions. We will protect your rights at all times and work hard to get the best possible outcome.
