More Aggressive Than The IRS?

The state of California is known to collect on notices dating back 20 years, while the IRS acts on only the past seven years of debt. If you are a taxpayer experiencing difficulties, this creates the need for a strong advocate representing your position.

California Tax Audit LawyerIn California, state taxes take several forms. The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) is responsible for
collecting state income taxes. The State Board of Equalization (BOE) handles sales and use tax, fuel tax and other excise tax programs. The Employment Development Department (EDD) collects payroll taxes.

The sooner you contact us concerning a California state tax dispute, the more options you will have in resolving it. Our lawyers can:

  • Analyze the tax claim and help you understand your options for responding to it
  • Help you take action to stop liens and levies on your property and accounts
  • Solve IRS tax controversies when they take precedence over state matters
  • Prepare and file missing tax returns
