Holistic Tax Solutions and Business Strategies

According to the National Taxpayer Advocate's Annual Report to Congress, 98% of noncompliance with the tax laws (as interpreted by IRS and the courts) is not willful, but is due to confusion and lack of information. Indeed, even though the National TPA would classify many of our clients as falling into the 2%, we know that our clients have done extensive research, and come to believe that the IRS and courts are the ones misinterpretatng the Code.

Either way, for most of our clients, tax debt is just a symptom of a larger systemic problem. Most of our clients come to us not having filed returns or paid taxes for decades, yet also not having amassed any measurable wealth. Others have filed but done so late, and paid late, incurring tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in interest and penalties. Many of our clients owe tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt. For most clients, their only savings is home equity; others do not even have that. Most of our clients come to us with a negative net worth.

For such clients, an IRS attack can actually be the best thing that happened to them.

Instead of addressing merely the symptoms (that is, the fact of an alleged tax debt), we address the entire business system, and correct the problems that led up to the IRS issues. This not only averts IRS (and state revenuer) issues, but also ends up saving our clients money in the long run. Our clients can "BEAT-IRS" without running afoul of IRS (or, worse, DOJ): saving money on taxes, reducing other costs, and saving money for the future.

Maybe your bookkeeping is haphazard. Maybe you don’t even have a bookkeeper or accountant handling the myriad financial forms the IRS requires of a business, let alone determining whether and how much money you actually make (or don't). Or maybe you are keeping great records, but you just don’t know what the law – as interpreted by IRS and the courts – requires, and thus, you’re always playing catch-up with, or running away from, the IRS.

Maybe you just need an unbiased third-party to review your business system, like a coach who watches an athlete run, and then offers advice on exactly what that athlete needs to do to shave a few seconds off of his time.

Regardless of whether your business is 2 years old or 30 years old, regardless of whether you’re a sole proprietor or a C-corporation with 300 employees, we have the knowledge and experience to make your business run better, so that you will avoid tax troubles in the future and build an inheritance for future generations. (Speaking of which, as a second-generation family law firm, we have also helped many clients navigate intergenerational business transfers.)

We are not licensed to provide financial planning or investment advice, but we have a network of advisors who are. We work closely with industry experts in financial planning, investing, pension plans, and other business strategies. One of our close advisors is the world's leading priority strategist, whose advice can help any business (or individual) better carry out his vocation.

What if you could access a world-class team of legal and financial advisors? You can!

Pension Plan Strategies

What if you could keep more of your hard-earned money without losing sleep at night or having to look over your shoulder to wonder when IRS was going come knocking? What if you could create wealth that is an inheritance for future generations? "The good man shall give inheritance unto his children’s children...." (Proverbs 13:22a) As part of our overall IRS tax defense strategy, we can refer you to industry leading pension plan administrators and financial advisors who can craft a custom-tailored tax-compliant plan that reduces your current tax burden while helping to bring you into compliance according to IRS and the courts. We have used these strategies to help settle cases for pennies on the dollar...while preserving a heritage for the future.

Credit Card Debt Settlement

Often, our tax clients owe credit card and other unsecured debt. We regularly work with our clients’ creditors to settle that debt outside of bankruptcy, achieving results with which our clients are very pleased and allowing our clients to gain a fresh start on their lives.

We are also able to help our clients, via our strategic alliances, rebuild their credit, obtain liquidity lines of credit and other financing, and otherwise improve their overall financial health. In the end, our legal fees, rather than being an expense, end up being an "investment on return" that pays dividends.
