Tax Penalty Abatement Attorneys
With the assessment of interest and penalties, tax debts can quickly increase to an unmanageable size. If you are facing significant penalties for a tax you owe, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. With skillful legal representation, interest and penalties may be reduced or eliminated.
At the Law Office of Williams & Associates, PC, our practice focuses on tax law issues such as tax penalty abatement. From our office in Sacramento, our attorneys represent individuals and business owners from California, throughout the United States and abroad.
Negotiating With Tax Authorities on Your Behalf
Interest and penalties are typically assessed for the late filing or late payment of taxes, understatement of income, overstatement of deductions or failure to report income. These penalties can have a significant impact, often accounting for 25 percent or more of your total tax liability.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA – formerly the State Board of Equalization (BOE)) and other tax authorities have tax penalty abatement programs. Often lawyers can help determine which abatement programs exist and why they may apply to you.
Our lawyers are skilled at showing that there is a reasonable cause for the late filing, reporting error or other tax issue. We also negotiate installment agreements and Offers in Compromise to reduce the underlying tax debt.
