Solutions to Tax Problems

If you have been contacted by the Internal Revenue Service, California Franchise Tax Board, California Board of Equalization or California Employment Development Department, you have a conflict or controversy. You may not understand the tax laws, but you know you are in financial trouble — and perhaps legal trouble as well. John D. Teter Law Offices has extensive experience representing individuals, small businesses, small-business owners and financial officers of larger entities who face difficult tax problems.

We can explain your rights and options in regard to state and federal tax audits, liens, garnishment of wages, seizures, levies and government actions against the "responsible person" at a company when employment tax deposits or sales taxes are not paid. First, we will determine if you have a tax liability. If you do have a liability, we explain the possible solutions to your problem. These include:

  • Paying the past due taxes through "unrecognized sources"
  • Paying over time through an installment agreement
  • Treatment as "currently not collectible"
  • An Offer-in-Compromise based on your assets and ability to pay
  • Using bankruptcy reorganization or liquidation

We can also represent you in any California state or federal tax audit, Internal Revenue Service Appeals hearing, petition to the United States Tax Court, petition of an EDD determination to an Administrative Law Judge, or protest of an FTB notice of proposed assessment. Additionally, we can advise you on other tax matters, and provide advice and services in business law and estate planning matters.
