o you have a tax issue concerning the Internal Revenue Service, State or local tax authorities? One of our founding attorneys has successfully represented clients in all areas of tax law.
When dealing with the IRS or other tax agencies, your case can quickly become complex and overwhelming. Tax law is complicated, involving plenty of codes, laws, forms, procedures, and protocols. This is why it is so important to have a tax lawyer representing your best interests.
Bauer, Gutierrez, & Borbon is well versed in tax controversy, civil tax controversy, and tax litigation and may be able to help you or someone you know with difficulties or charges concerning tax issues, negotiation with the IRS, and more.
Our Areas of Expertise Include:
Business and Corporate Tax Issues
Running a business or corporation can already be very time consuming, why not let a tax lawyer advise you on tax matters related to audits, payroll taxes, social security payments, sales tax, and other common tax problems. We can advise you on best practices, create a system that works for your business and resolve issues as they occur.
Partnership Tax Issues
Generally, the IRS does not consider partnerships to be separate from their owners for tax purposes; instead, they are considered “pass-through” tax entities. The complexity of that classification creates numerous tax issues for partners in partnerships. Not understanding the implications of asset contribution, distribution, deductions, capital accounting, and other partnership issues, can subject partners to unnecessary tax liability as well as possible criminal liability. Our accomplished attorneys can advise you and your partners on tax compliance as well as proper tax planning as it relates to partnerships.
Past-Due Tax Forms
Forgetting to file your tax return, whether because of serious illness, disorderly records, or inability to pay, is still a criminal offense. We can help you catch up on your past returns and avoid criminal prosecution.
Tax Consulting & Planning
The area of tax law is complex and often difficult to navigate. Whether you are looking for a complex business structure to minimize taxes, a strategic estate plan to preserve wealth, or competent representation to defend against IRS audits; Bauer, Gutierrez, & Borbon can help you with your individual needs. Understanding the tax code and proper planning is the best way to avoid tax problems.
International Tax Planning
Whether you need tax planning related to foreign tax credits, FIRPTA withholding, FACTA compliance, or are in need of a sophisticated international business structure, a knowledgeable tax attorney can help you make the right choices. Our attornerys have assisted international clients with structuring of offshore companies and trusts for real estate investment purchases, allowing them to avoid US estate tax as well as minimize income-related taxes.
A 1031 exchange allows you to defer tax on the sale of certain investment property so long as you are willing to reinvest in a replacement property and follow the rules and regulations for completion of a successful 1031 Exchange. We have a wealth of experience in handling these exchanges and can guide you through the process.
Innocent Spouse Claims
When married taxpayers choose to file joint tax returns, both taxpayers are legally responsible for the entire tax liability. This includes any additions to tax, interest, and penalties, even if they divorce. This is even true where one spouse earned all the income or claimed improper deductions or credits. In some cases, the innocent spouse can be relieved of any penalties associated with a tax crime or mistake of the other spouse or ex-spouse. We can help you determine whether you qualify as an innocent spouse.
Offers in Compromise
OIC is a program which allows qualified individuals with unpaid tax debt to negotiate a settlement amount that is less than the total owed to clear the debt. OIC can help you get out of tax debt for a small percentage of what you currently owe.
IRS Audit Defense
While the IRS actively seeks every bit of tax owed, a tax attorney can make sure you only pay what you have to. A tax attorney can help you avoid lengthy and costly tax audits and advise you of any possible negative outcomes. If you have an impending audit, call us for aggressive and competent representation.
IRS Installment Agreements
The IRS gives very little thought to your financial well-being or the impact levies on your accounts, or property liens and seizures can have your life. Very few people are approved for payment plans or installment agreements. However, your chances are vastly improved when you have the help of a tax attorney who understands the tax codes, laws, forms and procedures. Before you have levies attached to your property, call our law office to negotiate an installment agreement.
