Court Of Federal Claims Lawyer
In dealing with the Internal Revenue Service, it is not always possible for taxpayers to resolve tax controversies at the audit or administrative IRS appeals levels. Resolving tax issues early in the process is generally preferred to keep costs down and reduce uncertainty. However, it may be necessary to take a tax case to trial.
When a taxpayer takes a case to the Court of Federal Claims, the taxpayer must pay any tax deficiency before filing a case in court. However, the legal process provides an avenue to recover the funds in cases where the court deems the IRS determination was unjust. The Court of Federal Claims only hears cases against the federal government. Not all claims are tax-related, and the judges have varying degrees of experience with tax law.
