Tax Controversies and Disputes
We represents clients in the most complex IRS audits and appeals, IRS tax collection matters, civil tax litigation and IRS criminal tax matters.
At Ellis and Mock, we strives to resolve every tax controversy as early as possible and as favorably as possible. Litigation is expensive and risky, so we make every effort to hammer out a favorable resolution and avoid court. However, when litigation is the best or only option, you have a formidable trial lawyer on your side who can challenge the government's case.
Skilled Tax Litigation
Ellis & Mock Attorneys and Counselors at Law are uniquely qualified to represent clients in tax litigation. With many years of experience in complex tax matters,
We have a great understanding of IRS and Department of Justice policies, procedures and strategies.
When involved in the early stages of the process, our team proactively challenges the IRS' position. If tax disputes cannot be resolved at the IRS audit or IRS appeal level, taxpayers have the right to contest the matter in various federal courts. We will closely examine the facts of your situation and advise on whether litigation is the best course of action. If so, there are a variety of potential venues in which your case may be heard.
Preparing to Fight the Government
Tax litigation is a fight. A single loss may create unfavorable precedent that costs the U.S. Treasury millions in tax revenue. The government has a lot on the line, and so do our clients. We assemble a team with the capabilities to match or exceed the government's. Depending on the complexity of the case, Ellis & Mock Attorneys and Counselors at Law may pull in former IRS agents, forensic accounts, financial investigators, CPAs and industry experts. We do not initiate trial proceedings unless prepared to go all the way to verdict — there is little to be gained in retreat.
