For those who have been bogged down by tax debt, or any complicated tax situation, a quality IRS tax attorney might be the best way to sort through the damage. IRS tax attorneys should be well versed and up to date on all the changes happening with their field, as well as be the perfect fit for your specific case. In any instance, finding IRS lawyers can be tricky and time consuming, so it’s better to know the right questions to ask before seeking one out. Here are just a few of the questions you might want to ask your potential tax attorney:

5 Questions to Ask a Tax Lawyer

What’s your specialty?

This may seem broad, but this is really how to decide if this is the right lawyer for you. Most tax lawyers will specialize in one area of tax law, and it’s important to find one that fits your case. For instance, some tax lawyers may only handle issues with income taxes while others are well versed on taxes for small businesses.  Most tax lawyers are not familiar with every area of tax law. Whatever your issue is, that’s where their area of expertise should lie.

Did I miss something?

Right away, you should ask your potential lawyer if you missed something about your case that they notice right away. A tax lawyer should be able to look at your case and quickly point out any glaring red flags. Regular non-lawyer folks might not be able to spot certain tax issues that are quite obvious to a trained attorney. One of the first questions you ask should be about the state of your case.

IRS tax attorneys are a specific breed of lawyer, so understand what you want and what they can offer before you make any decision. A quality, knowledgeable and ethical tax attorney should resolve your case quickly and efficiently.
