Tax Litigation: Summons Enforcement Proceedings
Miami Tax Litigation Lawyer
Florida Tax Enforcement Proceedings Attorney
Tax litigation can be complicated and involve many different things. A tax litigation case may be tied to an IRS civil audit or a criminal investigation. If this is the case, the IRS may send out a summons in order to determine the accuracy of any tax return, filing a substitute return when one has not been filed, assigning tax liability to any individual for any IRS tax matter or to collect the tax debt that may be owed.
If you have received an IRS summons, turn to our experienced tax attorneys at Weisberg and Kainen P.L. We have extensive experience handling all aspects of tax issues for individuals and businesses in Miami and throughout the surrounding Florida communities. Our firm is committed to helping clients understand their rights and defend them throughout any IRS or criminal proceedings. Contact us today to discuss your tax litigation or tax enforcement matters.
We can work on your behalf to contest the summons that has been issued against you. Through thorough investigation and examination of your records, we can see that the issues at the heart of the matter are addressed. An individual may be able to contest a summons if there are realistic grounds for an objection. Many summonses are contested on the grounds that:
- What the IRS is seeking is not applicable to any genuine purpose
- The IRS already has the information or documents that it is requesting through the summons
- The summons was issued in order to harass or intimidate (in bad faith)
- Enforcement of the summons would result in an abuse of process and unnecessary inspection
Third Party Summonses
It is possible for the IRS to have issued a summons to a third party that may have information on your tax issues, such as a bank or brokerage firm where accounts are held. You can contest these third party summonses, just as you can contest a summons that was issued directly to you.
