Experienced In Tax Litigation

Our lawyers have extensive backgrounds in tax and accounting. Many of our attorneys are certified public accountants and others have accounting degrees.

Attorney Phillip Hamilton helps clients resolve tax disputes with the IRS, the Illinois Department of Revenue and the Illinois Department of Employment Security. We represent taxpayers in IRS tax audits, collection proceedings and administrative appeals, in cases before U.S. District Courts and the U.S. Tax Court, and in bankruptcy courts. We handle income taxes, employment taxes and sales taxes.

Survive A Tax Audit

An IRS tax audit can be sparked by various circumstances. For example, an innocent spouse may not have known how much money his wife or her husband earned and failed to report the right amount. In other cases, a questionable deduction will raise a red flag with the IRS.

Tax codes are extremely complicated with hundreds of pages of regulations. If you have been audited, our legal team will closely review audit reports and other records to understand if the tax authorities made any errors. We work vigorously to minimize your tax liability as much as possible.

If You Cannot Pay Your Taxes

If you are unable to pay your taxes on time or have been penalized for nonpayment, our tax attorneys will ask the IRS to set up a monthly payment schedule, decrease your payments and, if good cause is shown, request a reduction of penalties.

Do Not Fight The IRS On Your Own

If you are concerned that you will be audited or penalized by the IRS, you need an experienced tax litigation attorney to guide you through this complicated legal process.
