Tax lawyers of the firm stand ready to negotiate and resolve controversies with the IRS for firm clients. Tax controversies can arise in a variety of contexts, some of which are best handled by the CPAs for the clients, in which instance the ETG tax lawyers have deep experience in working smoothly as a team with the client's CPA. Other IRS controversies are best handled by a tax lawyer, which is when the firm's tax lawyers step in. If the controversy requires going to court, then the firm's tax lawyers will obtain the services of tax litigators for the client. One of the key judgments provided by ETG tax lawyers to the firm's clients is advising when to settle an IRS controversy and when to litigate, recognizing that fighting with the IRS can be expensive, not only in monetary terms but otherwise as well.
