Tax Audits and Appeals in Torrance, CA

Tax audits must always be taken seriously. They can threaten your profits, impede your financial goals and potentially expose you to civil tax penalties or even criminal liability.Swift action is important in any type of tax audit. You could lose vital rights by ignoring (or putting off) a notice of a state or federal tax audit. The sooner you get an experienced attorney involved, the greater your options for implementing strong, proactive strategies.

Benefit From Our Wide Breadth Of Experience

Our firm has successfully handled complex audits involving hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of individuals and businesses. Our business clients range from large, multimillion-dollar companies to local real estate investors, hotels, nightclub owners, partnerships, LLCs and sole proprietorships.

Our experience spans all types of tax audits and appeals (IRS, FTB, EDD and SBE) including:

  • Federal income tax audits (personal, corporate or payroll) before the IRS
  • Sales tax audits conducted before the California State Board of Equalization
  • State personal or corporate income tax audits before the California Franchise Tax Board
  • State payroll tax audits before the California Employment Development Department

Through strategic negotiation, we can strive to achieve a favorable resolution while avoiding the cost and delay of litigation in tax court. However, our litigators are also more than capable of handling administrative tax appeals before the Office of Appeals or through state or federal courts.
