Audit/Tax Return Exam

Receiving a letter from the IRS informing you that your tax return has been selected for audit (exam) is terrifying for most people. It is important to hire someone with extensive experience to deal with the IRS for you. The Law Office of Casais & Prias has represented individuals and businesses throughout every stage of the audit/examination process.

If you received an audit/exam letter from the IRS, contact the office of Casais & Prias immediately to schedule a consultation.

Collections

If you receive a letter from the IRS demanding payment, threatening a lien, or threatening a levy of your assets, it is important to contact an experienced tax attorney immediately. IRS letters have specific due dates and timelines that must be followed strictly, in order to avoid any negative collection action by the IRS. Failure to respond to an IRS letter may result in a levy of your assets, including your bank account(s), and/or the filing of a Federal Tax Lien.

A common IRS levy is a levy on a taxpayer’s bank account(s), in which the IRS enters your bank account and withdraws whatever funds are available in order to satisfy the past due tax debt. In addition, your bank will charge you fees for processing the IRS levy.

The filing of a Federal Tax Lien attaches to all your property and goes on your credit report, usually having a devastating effect on your credit score. Therefore, it is important to timely respond to the IRS before a Federal Tax Lien is filed.

If you received a letter from the IRS, contact the Law Office of Casais & Prias at (305) 722-8015 immediately.

Tax Return Preparer Representation

Our firm has successfully represented tax return prepares in matters involving tax preparer penalties (including due diligence penalties and audits), investigations by the US Department of Justice (DOJ), and DOJ injunctions to shut-down return preparer business.

Frequently Asked Questions

The first is a “No Change” result, meaning that the IRS has reviewed your books and records and determined that the tax return you filed is substantially correct and requires no changes. The second possible outcome is that the IRS has found errors on your tax return that are to your benefit, which results in a refund to you. Finally, the third possible outcome is that the IRS found errors on your tax return which would increase your taxable income and therefore increase the amount of tax due.
