Business And Individual Tax Representation

If you receive a letter from the IRS, California Franchise Tax Board or another state taxation agency, you may be wondering what to do. What are your options? When do you need to contact a tax lawyer? How much will it cost?

Ignoring the letter will only make the problem worse, as penalties and interest add to the balance owed. You need to seek help as soon as possible. Clients frequently tell us they wish they would have called sooner.

At the Tax Law Office of Jayson M. Aquino, CPA, Esq., we answer tax questions every day from business owners and individuals just like you. From our Garden Grove office, we have helped clients resolve a wide range of tax problems from delinquent taxes to criminal fraud charges.

What To Expect At The First Appointment

First, we will listen. We need to hear from you what happened. Once our attorney gets your story — whether related to a business or personal issue — we can discuss available options. Often we are able to immediately begin work on your case. We'll handle all the communication with the IRS or FTB to minimize the burden on you.

We can help you resolve a broad range of tax controversies related to:

  • FTB and IRS audits — We'll protect your rights and handle any necessary appeals or tax court litigation.
  • Back taxes — A variety of tools may help, including a request for penalty abatement or an offer in compromise.
  • Offshore accounts — We provide advice to dual citizens and recent immigrants on international account issues including FBAR and/or Form 8938 requirements, or coming into compliance through a streamlined disclosure or voluntary disclosure program.
  • Criminal tax fraud charges — Whether a charge relates to filing false tax documents or comes with other federal white collar allegations, we will fight to limit the consequences.

Clients frequently tell us they wish they would have called sooner. You can read what they have to say.
