The attorneys at Romano & Sumner are here to assist you with your tax issues:

  • Installment Plans
    • Many taxpayers facing a large tax bill are unable to pay the amount due by the due date. As result, the IRS files garnishments on their wages. An installment plan is an agreement with the IRS to pay the amount due in monthly installments. An efficient tax attorney is able to negotiate an installment plan which meets your specific financial situation.
  • Offers in Compromise
    • Some taxpayers owe much more in taxes, penalties, and interest than the taxpayers have in assets and future income. For such taxpayers, our attorneys are able to negotiate an offer in compromise with the IRS. An offer in compromise is a single payment or a small number of payments which the IRS accepts in full settlement of the amount due. An offer in compromise allows a taxpayer to settle their taxes with the IRS for a fraction of the original amount due.
  • Penalty Abatements
    • The IRS issues penalties for a number of reasons, the most common of which is a failure to file or failure to pay taxes. We understand that there a number of good reasons why someone failed to file or pay taxes. Our job as tax attorneys is to argue these reasons on the taxpayer’s behalf until the IRS agrees with our position.
  • Tax Court
    • When we do not reach a successful result in appealing with the IRS, we must go to tax court. Tax court is the last avenue in appealing tax decisions. Our attorneys are happy to represent you if it becomes necessary to involve tax court. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
