Filing state and/or federal taxes can be a daunting annual process even in the most basic financial circumstances. However, when it comes to negotiating intricate tax concerns on your own, this perplexing process can be downright daunting.
Working with a tax lawyer can be useful regardless of your income, deductions, household demographics, or occupation. He or she can assist you in avoiding possible tax issues or in staying on top of any existing concerns, ensuring that they do not worsen.
Furthermore, a tax attorney can communicate with the IRS on your behalf, saving you time, energy, and stress. Let’s go over what a tax attorney does and who should consider hiring one.
What exactly is a tax attorney?
A tax attorney is a lawyer who focuses on tax laws and procedures. Tax attorneys, like other lawyers, frequently specialize in a specific tax-related subject. This could include:
- State taxes
- Local taxes
- Personal income taxes
- Corporate taxation
- International taxation
- Tax controversies
- Planning an estate
- Organizations exempt from taxation
- and much more
To practice tax law, your lawyer must first finish the required law school courses, take the MPRE (or Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam), and pass the state bar exam.
Before they may practice, tax attorneys must first obtain a JD, or Juris Doctorate, in law. They could work for a variety of organizations and enterprises, federal and state government agencies, law firms, or even tax courts.
