What can a tax attorney do for me?
Tax attorneys represent clients in complex legal matters arising from business and personal taxes. This includes the planning side of the tax law where we use legal means to help you pay as little tax as legally possible, and the tax controversy side of tax law, where clients are disputing their tax bill with the IRS or their state taxing authority. While personal, business and estate tax laws differ from state to state, they apply equally throughout the country at the federal level.
At De Alicante Law Group, we focus on the preventative and planning side of the tax law to help you do smart personal, estate and business planning, so that you and your family can keep as much of your hard-earned assets as possible and not hand over any more than is absolutely necessary to state and federal taxing authorities. Sometimes tax planning requires a long-term plan, not just a one-time fix, and the sooner you start planning to pay as little tax as possible, the better your chances of success!
How to Find a Trustworthy Tax Attorney
The biggest challenge in finding a good tax attorney is finding someone with advanced, formal education in taxation. While some tax classes are optional in law school, there is no requirement that a person studying to be a lawyer take them, so just graduating from law school and passing the bar does not qualify someone to be a tax attorney.
Of course, experience matters, as do practice areas. An LLM in taxation may become obsolete if a lawyer does not practice in areas of law that require tax expertise. Likewise, there are also people who have a tax practice (in-house lawyers with the IRS, for example), who practice nothing but tax law with expertise acquired through years of practice, but never studied for an advanced degree in taxation.
Your best-case scenario would be to find a lawyer who has both the formal training and the practice experience demonstrating frequent application of that formal training. De Alicante Law Group provides that to clients each and every day. Tony earned his LLM in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington DC.
