Tax Questions

tax questions

Once you know you want to seek professional tax advice, you’ll next have to consider whether to approach a tax attorney or an accountant about IRS Tax Law. Answering this question will likely depend on what type of assistance you need. Of course, there’s no prohibition against speaking with both a tax lawyer and an accountant. In some cases, you’ll find both in one as many tax lawyers are also certified public accountants. Below are some things to keep in mind as you decide who to contact for tax questions.

Knowledgeable accountants and tax attorneys will be able to provide tax advice and planning strategies to individuals and businesses. The U.S. Tax court allows attorneys and certain non-attorneys, including qualified accountants, to represent clients in cases.

The differences. The training of attorneys, which includes an emphasis on studying case law, legal writing and research, may equip attorneys with an edge on specialized tax litigation and appeals and issues related to liability. The training of accountants in financial planning, and tax regulations and codes may give them an edge in financial strategy.
Consider your needs. Are you looking for simple tax preparation assistance, or are you planning an incorporation strategy for a new business you’re starting? For straightforward tax advice or assistance with filing income taxes you may save money and time in contacting a tax accountant. Additionally, an accountant may be the right fit if you are contacting an attorney primarily for planning or preventative purposes for you or your business.

If, on the balance, your questions are more complex, involve possible litigation or liability issues, and/or involve multiple parties or organizations, you would probably be best served by contacting an attorney. This is especially true if you find yourself in the position of receiving and responding to tax claims or audits against you, your family, or your business.

Knowing who to contact with tax questions is the first step. However, it’s just as important to know what questions to ask when you meet with a tax professional. You can find out more about U.S. tax law and procedures to help you by contacting Ascent Law.

About the Author

People who want a lot of Bull go to a Butcher. People who want results navigating a complex legal field go to a Lawyer that they can trust. That’s where I come in. I am Michael Anderson, an Attorney in the Salt Lake area focusing on the needs of the Average Joe wanting a better life for him and his family. I’m the Lawyer you can trust. I grew up in Utah and love it here. I am a Father to three, a Husband to one, and an Entrepreneur. I understand the feelings of joy each of those roles bring, and I understand the feeling of disappointment, fear, and regret when things go wrong. I attended the University of Utah where I received a B.A. degree in 2010 and a J.D. in 2014. I have focused my practice in Wills, Trusts, Real Estate, and Business Law. I love the thrill of helping clients secure their future, leaving a real legacy to their children. Unfortunately when problems arise with families. I also practice Family Law, with a focus on keeping relationships between the soon to be Ex’s civil for the benefit of their children and allowing both to walk away quickly with their heads held high. Before you worry too much about losing everything that you have worked for, before you permit yourself to be bullied by your soon to be ex, before you shed one more tear in silence, call me. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.
