How To Choose A Good Tax Debt Attorney
If you’ve decided to enlist the services of a tax lawyer, you definitely need to know how to locate a good tax debt attorney.
Attorneys are not all the same. Some may only specialize in certain areas. You need to make sure that you hire an attorney who understands and specializes in tax law. In addition, a good track record and reputation with former clients are extremely important. Any tax attorney that you are considering hiring should also be in good standing with their local bar association as well as the IRS.
Another point to consider are the attorney’s fee. Be aware that legal representation does not necessarily come cheap. However, if you’re trying to fix your tax situation yourself, the cost can easily wind up being much more – both moneywise and timewise.
Attorney fees vary depending on several different factors, which includes: location, case complexity, the experience of the lawyer involved and their fees for service. So before jumping in and choosing a tax attorney that seems just like the perfect on, slow down and be sure that you can afford their representation in order to prevent disappointment and delay.
Contact several tax attorneys and inquire about their fees. Find out if they have a payment arrangement that will fit in your budget and remedy your situation. The majority of legitimate tax attorneys will require that you put some type of upfront payment down in order to secure their services. In the legal industry, this is known as a “retainer”. Retainer amounts do vary, so be sure to ask about this.
Common Fee Structures:
1. Flat/Fixed Rate: This is an arrangement where legal services are performed under set agreed upon fees. You will know upfront exactly what your cost will be when it’s all said and done.
2. Hourly Rate: This is very common, and this means that fees will be determined based on how many hours the tax lawyer spends on your case. A good attorney will not try to milk you dry billing you for unnecessary hours; a good tax attorney will bill you only for necessary time invested in your case. Sometimes in this arrangement, a great portion of their payment can be agreed to come out of the settlement.
3. Contingency Fee: This is a fixed percentage related to the recovery amount that the tax lawyer is able to win for you; this will serve as the attorney’s payment. However, there may be other expenses such as filing fees, court costs, phone charges, copies, faxes and other that you may be billed for.
A successful tax debt attorney with a proven track record will have a solid background and knowledge in the intricacies of tax law. When you’re facing tax issues with the IRS don’t play around. Make sure that you obtain the services of a tax attorney that is licensed, skilled and confident enough to stand before the IRS and represent your case.
Know Exactly Who Will Be Handling Your Case
When interviewing and selecting the right tax debt attorney to handle your case, you want to know just that: will he/she be the person handling your case; will they be working with a team of attorneys to handle your case; or will they simply end up referring all the legal work out to a third party?
Also, you want to know how many cases the tax attorney and/or their firm has handled. What was their ratio of success. It is wise to know these things – especially being that you will be sharing very personal and confidential information with them.
You have got to trust your gut. What type of vibe are you getting from this attorney…positive, negative…what? You don’t have to love your attorney, but you do need to feel comfortable and confident in them enough to feel that they’ll do the best that they can to help you reach the best resolution for your case.
Settling your tax debt is one of the most important decisions of your life, so ultimately, it is extremely important to choose a tax debt attorney that you trust to represent your best interest and bring about IRS tax debt relief for you!
