With the 2020 tax season coming up, some taxpaying individuals or businesses may still be dealing with the aftermath of previous tax seasons, like surmounting debt or unpaid back taxes. For those individuals who may still be looking to receive tax relief on past tax years, Platinum Tax Defenders shares tips on when a tax attorney can be helpful in matters such as these.

Tax relief Platinum Tax Defenders has released tips for individuals and business taxpayers this tax season who may be wondering if and when they need to hire a tax attorney. When it comes to opening back taxes, fighting for a wage garnishment release, or trying to get the IRS to lift a bank levy, an experienced tax attorney can come in handy. There are other essential scenarios in which the help of a tax attorney would be beneficial for an individual or business’ tax situation.

“Tax attorneys can be beneficial in a lot of tax situations, whether they’re serious and you’re being audited, or not,” said Sherry Gastelum, CEO of Platinum Tax Defenders. “If you’re dealing with the IRS in any way, shape, or form, you should seek out the help of a professional tax attorney, and we’re here to assist.”

Platinum Tax Defenders understand how intimidating it can be for taxpayers to work directly with the IRS on their own. Any time a taxpayer begins to receive phone calls or letters in the mail from the IRS, Platinum Tax Defenders recommends they seek out the help of a professional tax relief services company as soon as possible.

The Difference Between a Tax Attorney and a CPA
Platinum Tax Defenders understands that some may not know exactly how a tax relief services company can help. For that reason, they first find it essential to point out the differences between a tax attorney and a certified public account. A CPA specializes in tax preparation and can answer any questions taxpayers may have on filing taxes. On the other hand, a tax attorney can assist when there’s a legal issue regarding your taxes.

When does it make sense to hire a tax attorney?
Any time a taxpayer is dealing with the IRS is a good time to seek the help of a tax attorney. If the IRS is threatening or has begun to garnish your wages, you should seek out the advice of a tax attorney. Additionally, if the IRS has placed a bank levy on your assets, it is also time to seek out the help of a tax attorney. There are other situations in which it may be helpful to hire the help of a tax attorney, as explained below.

If the IRS is auditing an individual or business, you should hire a tax attorney. In this situation, a tax attorney can help you negotiate a settlement with the IRS.
If the IRS is pursuing criminal charges against you, hire a tax attorney. There are times when the IRS has no choice but to pursue criminal charges against taxpayers, usually as a result of income tax evasion. If the IRS is threatening to take criminal action against you, hire a tax attorney.
If you want someone to communicate with the IRS on your behalf, you can hire a tax attorney.
