Tax litigation can be civil or criminal. It can result from a Statutory Notice of Deficiency issued following an IRS audit; or, it can result from an IRS audit investigation, levy, or other collection action. Litigation can involve summonses, subpoenas, injunctions, document requests, discovery and depositions. Sometimes the IRS will file a Complaint, but more frequently the taxpayer files the Complaint (or a Petition in Tax Court). While as a general rule clients are better off settling tax and other disputes out-of-court, often that is not possible. If that happens, we can help you.
The Gremminger Law Firm is well suited to represent you in any type of tax litigation. We fight hard for our clients, with the goal of winning the case. When it is in their interest, we are also expert at settling cases, either informally or through alternative dispute resolution including mediation.
Tax Litigation is what we do. Steve has first chaired virtually every type of civil tax case. He can help you with your case, or he can help your team be better equipped for the case. Whether it is collection-related, or a refund suit; whether the IRS thinks you promoted abusive tax shelters, that you owe penalties or that you are liable for criminal fraud, we will aggressively and thoughtfully defend you.
