Effective Tax Controversy

Has the IRS challenged your tax returns? You need experts who know the law to represent you. Whenever you are dealing with the IRS, timing is key. The sooner you contact a tax attorney the better your chance of preventing an adverse tax ruling. 



The Walton Firm assists client in cases before the IRS/State related to Audits, Appeal hearings, Trust Fund Penalties, (individual or tax professionals). We work with clients to address and resolve federal, state, local tax collection matters.

Tax Audits

An IRS/State tax audit is a review/examination of a company's or individual's tax returns, documents, and financial information to ensure information is reported correctly, according to the tax laws, and to verify the reported amount of tax is correct.

Administrative Appeals

Taxpayers have the right to a fair administrative appeal of most IRS/State decisions. If the IRS/State sends a notice proposing that the taxpayer owes more money, the taxpayer may want to dispute it through an administrative appeal.


Mediation, also known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), can help you if you have an unresolved issue with the IRS/State or disagree with an IRS/State decision or action.

Innocent and Injured Spouse

You may be eligible for innocent or injured spouse provisions, if you file a joint tax return and all or part of your portion of the overpayment was applied or offset to your spouse's legally enforceable past-due federal tax, state income tax, child or spousal support, or a federal nontax debt such as a student loan.

Payroll & Trust Funds Tax Penalties

If you are responsible for your companies' payroll and you did not pay the required payroll taxes, not only can your company be subject to penalties for no paying the payroll taxes or paying those taxes on time, you could also be subject to a trust fund penalty.

Tax Preparer's Due Diligence Penalties

In an effort to reduce inaccurately filed tax returns, the IRS/State also examines a percentage of tax returns related to Earned Income Credit (EIC), Child Tax Credit (CTC), Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOTC) and Head of Household filing status.
