State And Federal Tax Attorney For Southern California
Level The Playing Field In Tax Litigation, Tax Audits And Tax Collections
When it comes to California or IRS 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, revenue officers and attorneys receive constant specialized training in areas such as audits, litigation, collection and unusual tax situations. You 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.
I am Thomas J. Fernandez. As a former IRS trial lawyer, I have inside knowledge of how taxing authorities determine what you owe, how they prove it and how they seek to collect it. I can use this knowledge and experience to help you minimize unexpected tax liability, interest, fees and penalties.
Put My Experience To Work For You
I started Law Offices of Thomas J. Fernandez after working as a senior trial attorney for the IRS. I now represent individual and business taxpayers before the IRS, the California Franchise Tax Board, the California Employment Development Department, the California Department of Tax & Fee Administration (formerly 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 representation in tax audits, administrative tax appeals, and California and U.S. Tax Court litigation. I also provide civil tax fraud defense and help clients resolve tax liens and tax levies, including bank levies and wage garnishment.
