Tax litigation applies in the event that you do not resolve your case at the appeals level, you have the right in order to go to trial at the US tax court. There is a calendar call on Monday, they schedule the trial for sometime during that week and we go in to present the case, witnesses are called, evidence is presented and the tax court makes a determination in the case.
The Qualifications Of A Good Tax Litigation Attorney
Tax litigation is a fight, it's a negotiation. Tax litigation is a combination of the thorough organization of facts and documents, the strength of your case, the strategy and preparation of your tax litigation attorney in understanding how to present the facts of the case in a way that will put the tax payer in most favorable light, and the wits of the tax lawyer in negotiation. Experience plays a key role in preparing for tax court.
