Rely on Tax Litigation Attorney, John McDuff


I have successfully handled cases as large as five million dollars and as small as 50,000 dollars. I have handled income tax, excise tax, penalty, and estate tax problems. I have counseled other lawyers on criminal tax matters. I have appeared frequently in tax court, as well as in the federal district court and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. When the state of Texas seeks to collect sales taxes from my clients, I have been there, too, at the audit, administrative appeal, and litigation stages.

John McDuff will handle your audit from start to finish. After the audit, there may be a tax appeal. If you do not win at appeals, you may sue in tax court (specifically if you cannot afford the payment or the consequences of payment are severe).
