When the IRS inquires, we generally immediately request information, including if need be, filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to find out what the IRS knows and what process it has followed. We are also familiar with and will consult the Internal Revenue Manual (IRM), for a description and outline of IRS systematic methods for matters within their area of governance. These resources are deployed in addition to the typical IRS tax authority such as regulations, revenue procedures, revenue rulings, private letter rulings, and case law.
- We work with tax payers with tax debts equaling and in excess of $100,000.00 but less than $1,000,000.00.
- We do not practice criminal tax defense.
Few if anyone can predict when the IRS will inquire about or audit your tax position(s). If the IRS ever contacts you in this regard, we are here to protect you. We are CPAs and tax attorneys with years of experience in defending IRS inquiries and audits. When circumstances require, we will negotiate with the IRS toward the best solution for you. Where you are not able to agree with the IRS, then an appeal to the US Tax Court or Court of Claims may be appropriate. Our legal staff is admitted to practice before both courts. This advantage never exists in a run-of-the-mill CPA firm, and rarely in a law firm. Working with Crest Key you are connected to an integrated team of CPAs and legal staff to ensure there is no loss in translation at the various levels of assistance.
