Why Go To Tax Court
In my tax lawyer practice I file many Tax Court petitions for my clients. Most often they are filed before the running of the 90 day cutoff following receipt by the client of Notice of Deficiency. Filing a Tax Court petition is simpler than filing a protest with Appeals. A tax practitioner who can prepare a protest can surely prepare a Tax Court petition. Going to Tax Court, however, is a requisite skill for any attorney who is going to practice tax law. Navigating the murky waters of Tax Court requires the greatest care and highest level of experience. Only the foolhardy novice would take it on without careful consideration. For aggressive and thoroughly prepared legal representation call tax audit lawyer John Ellsworth at the Ellsworth Law Group.
Why am I so successful in Tax Court?
Because your case is prepared entirely by me – this is my secret. I handle every aspect of a tax court case myself. Every phone call is made by me; every letter is drafted by me; every meeting or dealing with the government is done only by me. I believe there is no such thing as a routine call or letter to the government. They all mean something and nothing should be overlooked or taken for granted. Of course I also rely on the valuable assistance of a select group of CPA’s and professionals to help me develop your case. But when it’s all said and done, it is my opinion and my expertise that will be presented to the IRS. Please compare this level of service and applied expertise to that offered by others. You will be amazed at what a difference this extra protection and care can make. I am a tax lawyer with 37 years of experience. My tax law practice extends across the United States. Each year I take cases from all states. My main area of expertise is settling tax debts owed the IRS and helping people comply with the tax law. I also practice defense of criminal tax cases. I try cases in U.S. Tax Court and U.S. District Court. All comments and postings are welcome and I will do what I can to respond in a timely way.
Over 50% of all Tax Court cases and over 90% of “small tax cases” under Sec. 7463 (cases under $50,000) are pro se. This means they are filed by the taxpayer without the assistance of an attorney. For the attorney tax practitioner, being able to prepare and file a petition is a useful skill against the tolling of a 90-day letter.
