There are few areas of the law as complicated as corporate or partnership taxation. Poor tax planning or adverse IRS actions can severely impact a small or medium-sized business. If you are concerned you haven’t been getting reliable advice on taxation, or you have an audit upcoming, Spizzirri Law Offices Company Limited is prepared to help. We handle all tax law matters, including tax law opinions, tax preparation and filing review, IRS and state tax audits, collection defensive measures, and criminal tax defense.

Irs Audit Examination Defense
If the IRS has sent notice it plans to audit your business, you need the assistance of an experienced tax attorney to help you minimize negative consequences, which can include additional assessments, penalties, interest, and even criminal prosecution. Our extensive experience with all areas of state and federal tax law allows me to understand the complicated processes and procedures that accompany an audit. We provide the proactive representation you need to prepare your company for the audit, including sound and effective tax law opinion letters, tax books and records documentation and maintenance and tactical initiatives to support your company’s tax strategies. We serve as your legal representative throughout the audit, defending your tax practices whenever the auditors raise an issue. When errors are uncovered, we can often negotiate a settlement that satisfies tax investigators and avoids an escalation of the controversy.
Fighting for Your Rights in Tax Litigation
In many instances, an optimal result of an audit examination can only be achieved through tax court litigation. When the results of an audit are controversial, you have the right to challenge the auditors’ findings in the U.S. Tax Court, the United States Court of Claims or United States District Court. As a tax litigation attorney with vast experience in tax disputes, Paul can help you through every step of the process. No matter your issue, he has extensive experience in the Tax Court and is prepared to provide you with the zealous advocacy you need.
Defense to Irs Tax Collection Actions
The IRS has aggressive tools at its disposal to collect back taxes and penalties. However, indiscriminate use of such tools, including the filing of tax liens, can restrict your access to the capital. Suddenly you are faced with a Catch 22: use capital to continue operations, so it’s impossible to repay what you owe, or repay your back taxes, but cease business operations. This choice can be even more difficult when tax compliance failures come as a surprise result of an audit examination where previously unknown liabilities for tax, interest and penalties can exceed your ability to pay. Before you let IRS collections force you into bankruptcy, consult a knowledgeable tax defense attorney who can protect your rights.
Providing Criminal Tax Defense in Atlanta
On rare occasions, an IRS audit uncovers discrepancies that prompt investigators to refer criminal charges. Potential penalties are steep, including heavy fines and potential prison time. We provide defense to criminal charges as well as civil tax disputes. Having been with my clients throughout the audit, I can move seamlessly to a defense of criminal charges, including tax fraud or tax evasion. When necessary, we partner with criminal defense counsel, who act as local counsel or litigation partners on substantial cases that can involve a variety of federal or state criminal charges in addition to tax fraud.
