IRS Taxes


Whether it's an impending IRS audit, unfiled returns, back taxes owed with interest and penalties, or an inability to pay federal or state taxes in a timely manner, you need skilled representation experienced in legal matters involving both the IRS and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. The IRS has their experts, don't you want yours?

The IRS utilizes aggressive actions to recover money they feel you owe them including wage garnishments, tax liens, and tax levies.
Lien  -  A tax lien is a legal claim to your property and is a prerequisite for a tax levy. Specific procedures can remove a lien before a levy provided the tax debt is satisfied.

Levy  -  A tax levy is a legal seizure of one's property to satisfy their tax debts. The IRS will sell or auction seized property and the proceeds will be applied to any taxes, penalties or interest owed. A garnishment is considered a wage levy.
Only an attorney with years of experience dealing with IRS policies and procedures can offer you the full range of potential resolutions permitted by law including:
  • Penalty abatement
  • Stay Of Collection
  • Non-collectible status
  • Innocent spouse relief
  • Levy release
