Cost-Effective Help For Tax Appeals

If the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has audited you or your business's financial records, it may determine that you owe additional tax. People sometimes may not know that they can appeal the IRS's determination. At Gordon & Alvestad, PLLC, our attorney has handled many complex tax controversies for clients throughout Washington.

More Than 30 Years Of Tax Experience

Our lawyer, Paul Alvestad, has been working with complex tax and financial matters since the 1980s and representing businesses and individuals who have been identified by the IRS as having unpaid or delinquent taxes. He has an advanced tax law degree in addition to over 30 years of helping clients with tax law matters.

We make a careful examination of your audit or collections action, explain the IRS's position and your options, and then work to develop a strategy to minimize your taxes and resolve your appeal.

Tax Collection Appeals Process

  • Tax appeals begin as an administrative proceeding with the IRS Office of Appeals. This office is independent of the IRS office that made the tax determination. It attempts to settle disagreements between taxpayers and the IRS without a traditional trial proceeding.
  • Your case will be examined by an appeals officer who examines issues involving disputed audits, collections litigation, offers in compromise, assessable taxes or trust fund penalties, and other issues of contention.
  • This process is complex, and errors or mistakes can be costly. Our experienced tax lawyer can provide the counsel and representation you need to resolve your dispute efficiently and in a cost-effective fashion.
