When Does it Make Sense to Hire a Tax Lawyer?

You have the right to attorney representation for any tax problem. However, as a practical matter, unless your tax liabilty, penalties and interest exceed $20,000, it may be cost effective to hire me.  Tax representation can be very time consuming and paper intensive. Although I strive to keep my fees as low as possible, every tax case I handle requires a certain level of work. It has been my experience that the $20,000 tax liability figure is a fairly good rule of thumb.

There are a number of “do it yourself” tax guides on the market for cases where it is not cost effective to hire a tax lawyer but there is always a risk if you try to deal with the IRS or Georgia Department of Revenue by yourself.

If you would like me to review your tax situation and offer you my analysis and suggestions about how you might be able to proceed on your own, I would be happy to schedule a consultation. My fee for an hour consultation is $250. Please click here to see what I will need to get started.
