If you are unable to resolve your tax dispute with the IRS through the administrative appeals process and require legal representation in the Tax Court, we can help.
Based in Bellevue and serving Washington State and Seattle, attorney Olga Guzhva has years of experience in U.S. Tax Court litigation and appeals. To consult with us about our tax attorney services and whether they are right for you, we welcome you to contact Guzhva Law Firm to schedule a free phone evaluation.
If the IRS denies requested relief, the taxpayer may petition the Tax Court within 90 days of the date the denial was mailed. In addition, the taxpayer may petition the Tax Court if the IRS has taken no action within six months from the date the request for relief was filed.
However, if a determination is issued after the six-month period, the taxpayer must file the petition before the close of the 90th day following the issuance of the determination. Filing a Tax Court petition for review of the IRS denial of relief has the effect of tolling the statute of limitations on collection and prohibiting enforced collection efforts.
In these situations, it is critical to hire a tax attorney who will present your case to the Tax Court.
At Guzhva Law Firm, we are providing thoughtful solutions and measurable value to each individual situation. Because U.S. tax law and regulations are complicated and constantly changing, it is important that you obtain up to date information about the provisions that apply to you to prevent costly mistakes.
Sometimes a petition to the U.S. Tax Court is your only option to preserve your appeal rights. Thus, we file this petition. But after the petition has been filed, we take all necessary steps to possibly negotiate a settlement with the IRS prior to trial, or prove to the IRS that our position is correct and the IRS is in error. In many instances, a taxpayer’s case can be settled prior to the costly Tax Court litigation.
