If you want to save yourself and your business for which you work so hard, NOW would be a good time to hire someone to help. These people know what they are talking about, and many have years in the business and are able to perfect a particular plan for each case.
Consider this scenario: You open your mailbox and see that you have been issue a CP notice. This may very well just be a reminder notice for a balance due, but just to be sure, it would be in your best interest to hire someone to make sure it is not tied to something more serious.
When the IRS is at their final straw, and they are ready to pursue criminal charges because you have not been paying your income tax, you should call an attorney. A situation like this is not anything to joke about and should be taken seriously. It is something that needs to be taking care of right away. The longer you go without paying, the higher the consequences you will face. An attorney can help you get on the right path, but you have to make that first step by contacting one.
Other reasons that you might want to consider hiring an attorney is if you own more than $10,000 to the IRS, or you have a tax issue that you do not understand. It is also a good idea to call someone if you have committed fraud, or if you think you might have committed fraud unintentionally. Another situation in which hiring a legal attorney is prudent to do right away is if you are going to start a business overseas.
It may be intimidating or daunting to think about hiring IRS tax attorneys. Always remember they are there to show you how to get your life back on the right track, and they truly do want to help you.
