When a taxpayer is confronted with an IRS or state tax problem, the first thought may be to go online to look for a tax attorney or a CPA to help them with their tax problem. While Tax Attorneys and CPA's typically have a degree of expertise as it relates to handling tax problems, there are four divisions of the IRS and dozens of departments within each division. It is virtually impossible for a single tax attorney and/or a CPA to effectively deal with each necessary IRS division timely and effectively. Keep in mind, a tax attorney is typically skilled in dealing with the LEGAL aspect of a tax problem... while a CPA is typically adept at dealing with the ACCOUNTING aspect of an IRS issue. The problem with this is that IRS problems involve both legal AND accounting compliance issues. By hiring a tax attorney or a CPA solely, the risk of critical elements of the tax problem being neglected is significant.
In order for an IRS tax matter to be handled effectively, the problem must be addressed from both an accounting and a legal perspective simultaneously. This can only be done by a full service tax resolution firm... Not just a CPA nor just a tax attorney. Tax Resolution firms, if they are reputable and effective, will assign a team of tax professionals to each case and will address all aspects of the tax matter without neglecting certain critical elements of the problem.
FinishLine Tax Solutions is a full service tax resolution firm which addresses all client tax matters from both a legal and an accounting perspective simultaneously... leaving no aspect of the problem unresolved.
