Tax lawyers across the country have one thing in common — the feeling of frustration when trying to figure out the hows and whys of IRS action or inaction. Finally, there is a book that helps to lift the veil of mystery. Written by a former litigator for the Tax Division of the Justice Department, Federal Tax Litigation offers unique insights from an insider’s perspective on both the legal issues and practical considerations involved in handling a federal tax controversy. It presents a comprehensive building block approach from start to finish of a tax controversy — audit, appeal, problems resolution office, collection, and subsequent judicial proceedings involving the Justice Department — all in light of the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 and the reorganization of the IRS into its four new divisions.

You’ll find coverage of every aspect of federal tax disputes, including: handling tax controversies at the administrative audit and appeals levels of the IRS; alternative dispute resolution procedures; asserting the "innocent spouse defense"; dos and don'ts in negotiating with the IRS; representing a client who is the target of the Criminal Investigation Division; refuting jeopardy assessments; suits against the federal government for overpayments; establishing that a taxpayer’s failure to pay was due to "reasonable cause"; fighting government suits for recovery of erroneous refunds; recovery of damages for improper government disclosures of tax return information; taxpayer recovery of attorney’s fees; tax debts that may be discharged in bankruptcy; and more.

Whether you are experienced or new to the field, this book will show you what to expect and help you advise clients in difficult situations. Don’t miss this essential guide used by practitioners in government and private practice and by law schools across the country!
