Here at JD Katz, we cannot stress enough how important quality representation by a Maryland tax lawyer is anytime you
are dealing directly with the IRS.  Why?  Understand that any representative of the IRS sent to evaluate your tax responsibility, and your past tax history, has one goal in mind.  Specifically, they are trained to thoroughly investigate your present and past tax liability and make certain that the IRS collects every penny possible owed to them.  That includes penalties and interests, regardless of whether improper withholdings were intentional or not.   Hiring a tax attorney to represent you in your dealings with the IRS is the only way to guarantee that tax laws and their application will work for you, and not against you, when its all said and done.
