Have a Former IRS Attorney Handle Your Tax Problems
When it comes to California or federal tax problems, it helps to have an experienced tax lawyer. You are about to come up against a powerful bureaucracy with complex internal rules and regulations-one whose goal is to collect the taxes it alleges you owe.
IRS auditors and attorneys receive constant specialized training in areas such as audits, litigation, collection and unusual tax situations. You, the taxpayer also need an attorney with that training and experience to protect your rights.
A tax lawyer with extensive knowledge of tax laws can protect your rights when facing the IRS or a California taxing authority. My direct knowledge of how taxing authorities determine what you owe, how they prove it, and how they seek to collect it can help you minimize unexpected tax liability, interest, fees and penalties.
If you think you could be facing allegations of tax fraud, have received a notice of audit or a notice of tax liens or levies, or are in a dispute with tax authorities, call me right away at (949) 753-9262. Or, contact me by e-mail at my Irvine, California, law office to get the answers you need about your tax problem.
About Me, Tax Attorney Thomas J. Fernandez
I earned an LL.M in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center, then was a senior trial attorney for the IRS for six years prior to forming a boutique tax law firm. I know how tax agencies work. As an IRS attorney, I advised revenue agents, international tax examiners, estate and gift tax examiners, revenue officers, and appeals officers regarding complicated tax issues and procedural matters. I use this experience and training to defend my clients against unfair tax liability and to resolve their tax issues.
I represent individual and business taxpayers before the IRS, the California Franchise Tax Board, the California Employment Development Department, the California Board of Equalization, and county tax boards. I also represent clients in administrative appeals before tax agencies, before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, and before the U.S. Tax Court.
I enjoy helping taxpayers, and I charge reasonable rates for tax planning services and for representation in audits, administrative tax appeals, and California and federal court appeals. I provide civil tax fraud defense and help clients resolve tax liens, tax levies and wage garnishment.
