When it comes to criminal tax matters, the IRS does not back down

They say there are two certainties in life; death and taxes. Regarding the latter, the Internal Revenue Service is one of the most loathed and feared of all U.S. government agencies. This is due in part to the fact that the U.S. tax code is notoriously complex and the related IRS policies, punitive and stringent. In cases where an individual fails to abide by IRS rules and policies, he or she may face harsh penalties including fines, tax liens, wage garnishment and even criminal charges.

Connecticut residents who are facing IRS-imposed fines or penalties often have many questions and concerns. For these individuals, an attorney who handles IRS tax matters like audits, foreign assets, tax errors and back taxes can be an invaluable resource. In cases where an individual is facing possible criminal action as a result of a tax matter, it’s especially important to contact an attorney.

For nearly 45 years, the tax lawyers at Baker Law Firm have helped Connecticut residents find solutions to their tax problems. For individuals who fail to file or pay their taxes or who have been accused of committing tax-related crimes like tax fraud, the IRS can be relentless in their pursuit to recover assets to which they believe they are entitled.

While an individual may want to hide his or her head in the sand and hope one’s tax troubles just go away, doing so is never a good idea. The IRS has the authority to impose liens on an individual’s property and even garnish an individual’s wages or sell an individual’s property to recover outstanding debt amounts.

An attorney will act as one’s representative when dealing directly with IRS officials and provide sound advice and strong legal advocacy to assist an individual in resolving tax disputes.
