Before You Hire a High-Priced Tax Attorney That Bills by the Hour, Consider Your Options.
If you need professional advice and representation for tax problems, there are many choices in three categories – the Tax Attorney, Certified Public Accountant and Enrolled Agent. At first glance perhaps an attorney, a lawyer, might seem to be good and powerful counsel for facing the Internal Revenue Service. But is the attorney the most qualified, most experienced and most valuable asset you can bring to the table?
Are there More Qualified Sources of Assistance? According to literature provided by the IRS and available at the government website: “Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.” (Source: IRS.Gov, http://www.irs.gov/taxpros/agents/article/0,,id=100710,00.html)
Did You Know? In many states throughout the country, attorneys and CPAs may not be required to take continuing education courses to stay abreast of changes in tax code. Again, that fact is provided by the IRS. (Source: IRS.gov,http://www.irs.gov/taxpros/article/0,,id=255487,00.html) The truth is, only Enrolled Agents are issued a federal license to represent clients before the IRS, and only Enrolled Agents are subject to continuing education throughout their term of accreditation.
If you need representation and you want to insure the individual you are working with is competent, up-to-date on the latest changes in tax code and has qualified for a license by the IRS, you should choose an Enrolled Agent first.
The Only Reason You Might Need a Tax Attorney
Tax Attorneys can provide unique assistance—provided that they specialize in tax problem mitigation and if you, the client, have committed tax fraud or other tax crimes that may be subject to criminal penalties. These are serious charges and best handled by a lawyer.
Do you need legal counsel, or would you best served by an Enrolled Agent? IRS Tax Relief Now, Inc. can help you answer that question responsibly. You are welcome to contact us for a free consultation to determine if you should seek the counsel of a tax attorney.
Benefits of Working with Enrolled Agents vs, Attorneys
Billable Hour vs. Flat Fee/Same Results or Better. Ask yourself: Would you be more comfortable paying a lawyer by the billable hour, or paying a flat fee to an Enrolled Agent that is obligated to take continuing education courses to keep up with the ever-changing tax codes … and stay in practice? What if the Enrolled Agent you choose to work with and represent you had more than 30 years of experience in the specialized industry?
Simply, these are reasons that explain why working with IRS Tax Relief Now, Inc. makes more sense than consulting and retaining a mere attorney who may or may not know all the current tax laws.
