Tax controversy encompasses resolution of tax related issues with tax authorities involving for-profit or nonprofit businesses, individuals, estates or trusts. The dispute can be at a state, federal or foreign tax level. It can originate from income tax, sales tax, use tax, property tax or estate/gift tax.
Tax controversy can involve civil matters, such as dealing with IRS audits and collection activities or foreign tax issues, or criminal matters, such as handling criminal investigations by the IRS, the state tax authorities or the Justice Department.
Abajian Law’s greatest asset is the unique insight Vic gained from working inside the government as a former IRS counsel, which allows him to understand the nuances of how the system really works. Judge for yourself: we are confident that a business savvy client will quickly realize that we can understand their issues and devise a logical course of action for almost any tax issue.
We also understand that attorney representation is not always the answer, and have advised many consults that an alternative option may be more sensible.
