Federal tax laws are highly complex. Finding a tax attorney RI who can handle the full range of tax issues that your tax controversy and tax dispute may entail can be difficult.

The Fresh Start Program

An Offer in Compromise is an agreement that allows taxpayers to settle their tax debt for less than the full amount. Fresh Start expanded and streamlined the OIC program. The IRS now has more flexibility when analyzing a taxpayer's ability to pay. This makes the offer program available to a larger group of taxpayers. It is more important than ever to hire tax Lawyers. Tax Attorneys have first hand experience dealing with the IRS and State and Local Goverment. As your tax attorney Creating Peace of Mind by Solving Your Tax Problems is my Goal 

Tax Resolution


Many times, taxpayers will consider undergoing tax debt relief services themselves. It is clear many people feel that they already cannot afford the cost of a tax professional to help them through the process.  However, without the expertise of a skilled professional, taxpayers in debt may find themselves in a financial dilemma.  When you go it alone, you may find yourself in over your head. That's why I recommend that the average individual not go this route, as there are a lot of options for getting rid of tax debt and maneuvering through them can be very tricky. Some of these programs require very thorough financial investigations and may even involve negotiation with federal or state tax agencies.

Offers in Compromise


I have a clear track record of filing successful Offers in Compromise for clients. At the beginning of each representation I determine if my clients qualifies for the Offer in Compromise program and the range of possible outcomes. I then lead the client through each step of the Offer in Compromise proceeding from filing the Offer to negotiating a settlement that can result in significant tax savings. Most our cases settle for a fraction of the client’s original tax liability.

Installment Agreements


The IRS allows individuals or businesses to pay their Federal tax liabilities over time with a wide variety of installment payment agreement options. We examine each client's unique financial situation and tailor the best installment agreement solution whether through the IRS Fresh Start program, full payment agreements, partial payment agreements or agreements based on the client’s ability to pay.

IRS Appeals and U.S. Tax Court


I provide representation to my clients through all types and stages of IRS appeals including Collection Due Process hearings, audit re-considerations and trust fund recovery determinations. I utilize my in-depth and firsthand knowledge of the IRS Appeals process to successfully resolve my client's tax collection and audit cases. I am also admitted to practice in the U.S. Tax Court where I often represent clients in challenging IRS cases.

Hardship Status AKA currently non collectible


Currently Not Collectible. There are times where you agree with the IRS that you owe taxes, but you can't pay due to your current financial situation. If the IRS agrees that you can't both pay your taxes and your reasonable living expenses, it may place your account in Currently Not Collectible (CNC) (hardship) status

Penalty Abatement


It allows a first-time noncompliant taxpayer to request abatement of certain penalties for a single tax period. Individual taxpayers may request an FTA of a failure-to-file or failure-to-pay penalty. Business taxpayers can request an FTA of those penalties or of a penalty for failure to deposit payroll taxes.
