IRS Audit

An IRS audit is every American’s fear. When that notice of audit arrives in the mail, the nightmare of the IRS rifling through your bank account statements, credit card statements and financial files begins and seemingly never ends. Document request after document request will follow even more document requests in an effort to wear you down and force you to give up. Do not face the audit alone. The IRS Examination Officer is focused on one thing: maximizing the amount of money you will owe the IRS. The IRS will not tell you how the law may benefit your case. They will simply deny deduction after deduction until they have essentially squeezed every last dime out of you. The tax attorneys at the Scammahorn Law Firm will use the law and experience to challenge the IRS on its findings, filing appeals and lawsuits when necessary. You will never be asked to meet with the IRS as the Scammahorn Law Firm will handle the audit process from start to finish. - Read More

Why You Need a Specialist Tax Attorney

The IRS Code is nearly 80,000 pages and extremely complex.

Because of this, the IRS often uses its knowledge of the code to intimidate and take advantage of taxpayers who elect to represent themselves. This is why it is imperative that you choose to retain an experienced tax attorney rather than fight the IRS yourself.
Scammahorn Law Firm handles cases that involve:
We have also been able to resolve cases through Partial Pay Installment Agreements, streamlined Installment Agreements, and Offers in Compromise. Many of our clients come to us when the IRS has already garnished their pay check or bank accounts. In most cases we are able to get the garnishment released immediately and put administrative procedures in place that will prevent the IRS from being able to seize any assets or bank accounts while the case is pending. We are able to delay collection activities – sometimes for years – while a case is being resolved. - Read More

Bank Levy Relief

The IRS has many tools at its disposal to take your money and leave you penniless. The bank levy is a common tool employed by the IRS.

  • "As an attorney, my civil litigation cases are contested.  In a recent lawsuit against Mr. Scammahorn's client, he fought agressively and accurately against me for his client, filing fast motions and objections to my pleadings and identifying weaknesses in our case, to our chagrin.  We could, however, trust each other to be straight, produce documents, and adopt realistic expectations for the case.  We settled fairly at mediation.  Every lawyer likes working with a competent, experiened, trustworthy opponent like Scott."
