Audits and Tax Controversies
When the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) comes knocking at your door, it probably isn’t just to say “hello.”
During your lifetime, or the life of your business, you will likely be faced with some kind of scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), the Florida Department of Revenue (“FDOR) or your local taxing authorities (or, in some circumstances, all of the above) in the form of an audit or an unexpected tax bill. These situations present not only a significant financial risk to you and your business but also take a substantial toll on your stress levels.
At Rogers Towers, we have a Federal and State Tax Audits and Controversies Practice Group, which is dedicated to representing clients in all stages of the tax controversy process, including:
- Administrative protests and appeals
- Post-appealsRuling requests
- Tax litigation before federal and state courts (including the U.S. Tax Court)
- Strategic tax advice for the future
- And more
Federal Tax Issues
Our lawyers have a strong track record when it comes to resolving highly sensitive issues with the IRS, both for individuals and for companies of all sizes (including nonprofits). Clients look to us for guidance through audits, the administrative process, the litigation process, in appeals, and beyond.
We can assist with:
- Tax compliance and reporting
- Offers in compromise
- Challenges to tax-exempt status
- Defense of reporting positions
- Defenses against tax collection
- And more
We are often able to resolve issues on favorable terms before the dispute advances to litigation. When appropriate, that might include obtaining private letter rulings or negotiating voluntary disclosure agreements — something we have successfully done for many clients in the past.
State Tax Issues
At the state level, we routinely represent clients in FDOR audits and in challenging assessments arising out of reemployment tax, sales and use tax, intangibles tax, documentary stamp tax, and ad valorem (real property and tangible personal property) taxes.
Whatever Florida tax issue you’re facing, we want to help. To learn more about the Rogers Towers Federal and State Tax Audits and Controversies Practice Group and how we can make a difference for your business, please contact us at 877-398-3911.
