Tax Audits

Our parents encourage us to “play fair.” Unfortunately, when an individual or a business must face the IRS, the California Franchise Tax Board, or the California State Board of Equalization, nothing seems “fair.” It does not always feel like a level playing field when the government notifies taxpayers that they owe unpaid taxes, interest, and penalties; or that they failed to timely file multiple years of tax returns triggering huge penalties; or that the government intends to perform an audit and assess additional taxes. Confronted with such government assertions, the goal often becomes clear: negotiate a satisfactory settlement without having to proceed all the way to a court trial. Palm Desert tax debt and collection lawyers Sanger & Molever can help taxpayers with large unpaid taxes.

I cannot recommend anyone higher.
Before your negotiations with the IRS, the IRS's levies and tax liens, would have driven us out of business. Thanks to your negotiations with the IRS Revenue Officer, our company was not shut down, and our company is now back on its feet, and again successfully operating. Plus, an extra special "thanks" for serving as a buffer between us and the antagonistic IRS Revenue Officer whose aggressive "enforced collection" threats, made it impossible for me to sleep at night, and left me with blood pressure far above 80/120.
