Fees will vary depending on the type of case. Estimates cannot be provided over the phone. Nor will answers to specific tax questions be provided over the phone. We will be happy to discuss the services we provide and a general overview of the process.
OVDP/Streamlined Procedures: Flat fee
Audit Representation: Hourly rate for office and field audits. A flat fee is not possible because it is impossible to determine how long the audit process will last. Additionally, additional years are often audited and issues are expanded. Our goal is always to minimize the audit timeframe and keep the scope of the audit from expanding.
IRS Collections Representation: Hourly or fixed. If client chooses fixed fee, we’ll provide a fee range at the initial consultation, but we will not be able to provide an engagement letter with exact fees until we’ve completed an analysis of your tax account history and financial information to determine what type of collection relief you might qualify for. The cost for the analysis is $500. Upon completion of the analysis, which can take up to two weeks, we will provide you with an exact estimate for the remainder of the process.
All Other Matters: Hourly or fixed depending on the issue.
Clients are sometimes concerned about hourly rates due to uncertainty as to what their total legal costs will be. We’ll give you an accurate range of what we expect based on prior cases we’ve handled. If at any point we determine that it will exceed that range, we will notify you immediately. If there is any concern about an invoice, we will be happy to discuss with you to come to a resolution.
