Lancaster Tax Audit Attorneys

Despite your best efforts to be honest, truthful and forthcoming with the IRS, it is possible that you will find yourself in a situation in which the IRS wishes to perform an audit of your tax return. The experienced attorneys at Appel & Yost LLP can help you prepare for your audit by advising you as to what types of documents need to be collected in preparation for the audit and will be with you every step of the way to ensure the audit process runs as smoothly as possible. We can also help you dispute the result of an audit if you believe that the result of the IRS's audit was incorrect or an inaccurate reflection of what taxes you need to pay.

Lancaster Tax Litigation Attorneys

It is not particularly uncommon for the IRS or local taxing authority to incorrectly determine your tax liability. The tax law attorneys at Appel & Yost LLP will vigorously represent you at both the administrative level and, if necessary, in court. Our attorneys take the time and care to analyze each case individually to determine the most appropriate means of proceeding effectively and cost efficiently. In the event our clients are determined to owe additional tax, our tax law attorneys are experienced in negotiating settlements with the federal, state, and local taxing authorities. These settlements are often for amounts much lower than what you owe, so that you can be relieved you of your tax liability and still have enough money to pay for your living expenses.
