When people hear about someone facing tax problems, they often make some unflattering assumptions about that person. They might think he or she broke the law or is trying to cheat others or the system. These assumptions can make people feel embarrassed and ashamed to discuss tax-related issues should they arise.
In reality, however, people from all walks of life can end up having to deal with the IRS and tax complications. After all, our tax code is incredibly complex and it changes constantly, which makes it all but impossible for the average person to navigate the system without issue.
Because of this, we encourage readers to not hide from tax problems but to ask for legal help in resolving them, which can be beneficial for a few reasons.
- An attorney familiar with federal and state tax laws can help you avoid costly missteps. People who try to deal with tax complications themselves run the risk of making mistakes because they don’t know better.
- You may not have any first-hand experience dealing with the IRS, which can make you feel far more intimidated and unprepared. Without knowledgeable support, you can wind up agreeing to things that may not be in your best interests.
- A legal representative can protect you and your rights. There is a lot on the line when it comes to alleged tax violations and the IRS. If you don’t have someone looking out for you, you can find yourself exposed to serious civil and criminal penalties.
