Some instances where it can benefit you to hire an attorney include: if you’re facing a tax audit; if you’re being charged with tax fraud; if you have a large tax debt you need to repay; if you have unfiled taxes; and if you have unpaid payroll taxes.

If you receive notice from the IRS that you are facing an audit, you need to hire an attorney before your initial interview with the federal agency. During this interview, the IRS can ask you a series of questions, and the answers to these can have an impact on your audit. A tax attorney can ensure the questions you are being asked are fair and can help you answer them without unintentionally making your situation worse.
Tax Fraud Charges
Tax fraud or tax evasion charges are serious and require you to hire a tax attorney as soon as possible. If convicted, you can face financial penalties and even jail time. Because of this, it is essential to hire an experienced tax attorney to represent you during your criminal case.
Large Tax Debt
Do you owe the IRS a large amount in back taxes? Before you stress about the amount, hire a tax attorney. An attorney can ensure you owe the amount the IRS is claiming. He or she can also negotiate with the IRS on your behalf to try to get your total debt reduced or set up a payment plan.
If you have unfiled taxes, it’s important to work with a tax attorney to determine the correct process for how to file them and how to avoid any potential penalties. An attorney can work with the IRS to try to get you the best possible outcome and the lowest penalties.
Unpaid Payroll Taxes
Failing to submit payroll taxes to the IRS can result in substantial financial penalties. If you are responsible for submitting the payroll taxes, it is crucial to hire a tax attorney so he or she can advise you on the best course of action. An attorney can also work with the federal agency to try to get your penalties reduced while defending you and pleading your case.
