Sales Tax Controversies
This is a very interesting and challenging area of the law. The agency responsible for enforcement and collection is California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) formerly known as California Board of Equalization. It is an area that not too many attorneys focus on and it is an area of the law that can catch business owners, especially small business owners, off guard. What surprises many small business owners is how fast the liability can grow in what appears to be an innocent oversight. Mr. Taheran has helped many business owners successfully challenge these liabilities over that last 27 years. You need an experienced attorney by your side and we can certainly provide that. More often, taxpayers innocently believe that they have done nothing wrong and elect to represent themselves or allow their tax preparer or CPA represent them before the CDTFA. You need to assess and strategize the case from the onset. It is much easier and cost effective to tackle tax controversies especially sales tax correctly from the beginning. If you are involved in a sales tax controversy, please contact us for a free consultation.

Tax Settlements known as Offer In Compromise (OIC)
Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a wonderful tool for taxpayers who are in dire circumstance and eligible to participate. They key work here is eligibility. Not everyone will qualify. Taxpayers in need of settlement are usually in a dire circumstance. You need an honest and competent representation.
One of the mistakes taxpayers and professionals in this field make is that they ignore examining and pursuing the controversy on the ground that they may not even owe the liability. You need to strategize OIC from all angles.
Both federal and state agencies offer OIC. If you owe any federal or state agencies large sum of money, please contact my office for a free consultation.
