Problems in Rockaway, NJ? I help individuals and businesses in Rockaway and throughout New Jersey find efficient solutions to their tax-related legal issues.
If you are facing a tax problem, the sooner you address the problem, the better. Tax problems do not just go away. In fact, the longer you wait, the more you are likely to owe to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the New Jersey Department of Revenue.

Are you concerned about interest and penalties? Are you wondering what will happen now that the IRS has discovered that you haven’t filed your taxes? Do you need to appeal the outcome of a tax audit in order to avoid insurmountable financial liability? As an experienced Rockaway Tax Lawyer, I deal with these types of questions on a daily basis. And if you would like legal advice custom-tailored to your individual circumstances, I invite you to give me a call.

FAQS: Working with a Rockaway Tax Attorney
Q: When should I think about hiring a tax attorney?
Not everyone needs a tax attorney. Sometimes, a certified public accountant (CPA) will be able to provide the advice you need. In other scenarios, your best option may be to hire an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
However, there are a number of situations in which working with a Rockaway tax attorney can be of great benefit. Some examples include:
- You have received an audit letter from the IRS or New Jersey Department of Taxation
- You have received an unfavorable tax audit determination
- You have not properly disclosed your foreign assets
- Your spouse or former spouse has underreported his or her income
- You are facing any other issue carrying the potential for financial penalties and civil or criminal prosecution
Q: How can a tax attorney help?
If you are facing a tax problem with the IRS or the New Jersey Department of Taxation, an experienced tax attorney will be able to help you execute a plan of action that minimizes your financial liability and reduces or eliminates your exposure to prosecution. Examples of the types of questions a tax attorney can help you answer include:
- What is a streamlined installment agreement? Am I eligible; if so, is this an option I should consider?
- What do I need to include in an offer in compromise in order to make it attractive to the IRS?
- What foreign assets do I need to disclose? How should I approach disclosing my foreign assets if I haven’t previously reported them to the IRS?
Q: How much does it cost to hire a tax attorney?
It depends. Senior tax partners at large law firms command high rates. If you choose a large firm, you could have several associates billing hours to your tax controversy as well. A new solo practitioner may offer a much, much cheaper rate, but may lack the experience and insights you need to secure the best possible resolution.
