“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Austin Tax Court Suits Lawyer
The People’s Tax Court
Sometimes, individuals and businesses with tax conflicts will take those disputes to the U.S. Tax Court. The U.S. Tax Court is often called “the people’s tax court” because taxpayers with minor dispute(s) occasionally represent themselves. However, when stakes are high, it is much safer and much more effective to be represented by a tax lawyer who will be prepared to try the case, if a settlement cannot be reached.
The judges at the U.S. Tax Court tend to favor the IRS when there are controversies. If your case is controversial, it is important to be represented by an experienced attorney who is familiar with tax laws and regulations, and with the court itself.
Taking a Case to Tax Court Can Delay Tax Collection
It is possible to sue the IRS in tax court without having paid the tax. If a taxpayer sues the IRS, he or she will not be required to pay back taxes until the judge rules against the taxpayer. This is an attractive incentive for many taxpayers to take their case(s) to tax court when they cannot afford to pay the tax, but believe they have reason to challenge it.
