Tax Services in Westchester County, NY
How Can Our Tax Attorneys Help You?
Tax issues are stressful and complicated, requiring the help of an experienced
legal professional. At Bronson Law Offices, P.C., we help you face tax
authorities for a number of tax problems, including tax debt, unfiled
tax returns, removing tax liens or garnishments, interest abatement, appeals
and litigation, business tax problems, and more.
Unpaid or Unfiled Taxes
Failure to file your taxes can result in a number of penalties.
These can include:
- Wage garnishment
- Interest charges
- Larger tax debt
Penalties may be avoided if you qualify for tax relief programs. Our Westchester
tax lawyers can look at your tax debts and help resolve or settle your
unpaid taxes or minimize what you owe in a way that best fits your family.
Are You Being Audited?
When the IRS or New York State views your tax return for inconsistencies,
they may ask you for proof. Audits can take months to complete and often
result from unknown issues in the tax laws over almost anything. This
is where disagreements arise and where an attorney can look at the law
to argue your case.
Facing the IRS on your Behalf
The IRS will determine tax penalties based on your circumstances. Penalties
can equal 25% of your debt, so finding a way to abate that debt may provide
significant relief. Levies are taken by the IRS or the state to seize
your money, wages, or accounts. Similarly, tax liens and wage garnishments
can tie up your wages and property, making it impossible to sell your
home or hard to pay your bills. Further, it can affect your credit score
and make it hard to secure a loan.
You should never ignore notices from the IRS or the State Franchise Tax
Board. Once these penalties are in place, they are very hard to remove
until your debt has been paid.
Settling Your Tax Debts with Our Westchester County Tax Lawyers
We work to reduce your liability and help you create a payment plan to
repay your debts. We can help you negotiate a resolution to find a favorable result.
Furthermore, if you are the spouse of a person who owes back taxes, you
may qualify for “Innocent Spouse Relief” based on Code section
6015. This requires compliance with a nuanced law, correctly filed paperwork,
and understanding the code.
