It goes without saying that tax law is a complicated area of law that can leave an individual’s head spinning (not literally — that would be bad). But even though this is an obvious piece of information, there are still plenty of people out there who may think that they can tackle their tax issues or the Internal revenue Service on their own.
Don’t try to be a hero. You need legal help in these situations to ensure that your rights are protected and that your case is proceeding effectively and appropriately. There are just far too many intricate details and complex issues that can be involved in tax litigation or a tax problem.
For example, just take some simple tax debt. Say a person owes $5,000 in back taxes. That person may be inclined to just deal with the IRS directly, but that can be a difficult task. These days it is rare to actually talk to a person at the IRS. The communication is mainly done electronically or through the mail. How are you supposed to effectively appeal something — or try to settle something — under these circumstances, especially if you don’t know all of your rights and options?
