When asked to comment, Steven Goldburd said, “One of the biggest problems among our clients is that they are so frightened of the power of the IRS and have no clue how to approach dealing with an IRS dispute.”

“One of the best ways to tackle this,” he said, “is to become what we call a ‘smart taxpayer’ with three key steps.”

1. Become Educated

One of the best things to do in dealing with tax issues, like any subject, according to Mr. Goldburd, is to become educated in the process.

“Tax professionals can help break down complex information about tax law, how it applies to a particular case and more importantly how the progression of your case will evolve,” Mr. Goldburd commented.

He added that while Goldburd McCone LLP works on a case, they work hand in hand with their clients to ensure that they don’t resume the bad habits that got them into this predicament.

“We want to find long-term solutions for our clients, so they don’t have the same issues with the IRS a year later. We try to permanently fix the problem both at the governmental level and at the client level, instead of simply applying a band-aid like a regular resolution service,” Mr. Goldburd said.

2. Contact the Right Professional

Another key aspect of navigating the tax landscape is to have the right counsel leading the way. So be sure to contact the right professional.

“Many firms will speak the right jargon, but the right lawyer will make you understand that your situation is serious, and will not be undone with any quick fixes.They will then proceed to outline a detailed plan on what needs to be done and what need to change,” Mr. Goldburd said.

Competent tax attorneys will also of course provide the honed expertise needed to navigate a complex IRS issue.

When asked to comment Benjamin Goldburd was quoted as saying, “For example, a lot of people trust the IRS and think their word is absolute. However, as experienced tax attorneys, we often uncover mistakes made by the IRS, or another tax professional once we fully delve into the entire tax situation. By finding the errors, the misconceptions, and the misread code sections we we can often cut balances in half or eliminate any debt completely.”

3. Avoid Tax Resolution Myths

An important aspect of being a smart taxpayer is to steer clear of mythical tax resolution firms, in the Goldburds’ opinion.

The reason for this is they have seen multiple cases where unrealistic expectations have been set in terms of wiping out tax debts.

“Some mythical tax resolution firms charge clients an upfront fee which can be three of four thousand dollars and then subsequent monthly payments with the promise of settling a case for pennies on the dollar.”

This promise is rarely met in their experience for the people concerned, even after months of waiting around. “There is no way to magically settle a case in this way, the only real way to work through the issues piece by piece.”

Generally though such firms might seem advantageous at first, and even cheaper at the start than a tax law firm like Goldburd McCone LLP. However, the end result will probably be more expensive, especially if you have to fix further problems that have arisen from inexperience or neglect of the case.
