Tax Attorney Buffalo NY

IRS & NYS Taxation

Dealing with the Internal Revenue Service or the New York State Tax Commission can be a difficult process for most people. Not only are the laws and issues often incomprehensible, but the bureaucracy can be overwhelming as well. Confronting these without the assistance on an experienced tax attorney could be disastrous.

Facing a tax controversy will be stressful, especially since the penalties and interest may continue to add up for every day you are unable to resolve it. Add the fact that many tax issues arrive completely out of the blue and you had no idea you were doing anything wrong to begin with, and you have yourself a legal problem that requires immediate and decisive legal assistance.
