read more about us

Each year thousands of American taxpayers, both businesses and individuals, are threatened with penalties by the Internal Revenue Service. The issues you may face with the IRS include delinquent returns and payments, audits, and back taxes. If you have become the target of an IRS audit, or have received threatening letters from the IRS, it is important to act quickly in order to avoid any garnishment of your wages and bank accounts, or levies of your personal property – including your home.

IRS Audit Lawyers

more about our experience

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.

Why You Need A

Specialist Tax Attorney in Dallas

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.

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 checks 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. 

Resolve Your Tax Problems

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. If you ignore IRS notices regarding your back taxes, the bank and wage levy will happen. You won’t realize it until your checks are returned for insufficient funds and all of your money on deposit is frozen. Don’t let this happen to you. The Scammahorn Law Firm will file appeals where appropriate and stop the IRS from levying your bank accounts, wages, and property. If the IRS has already issued a levy against your bank account or wages, the Scammahorn Law Firm will work with the IRS to remove the levies and resolve your tax problems. Contact the Scammahorn Law Firm today to put an end to the relentless collection activities of the Internal Revenue Service and resolve your IRS problems. We serve individuals and businesses throughout Texas, including Tyler, Nacogdoches, Marshall, Longview, Palestine, Dallas, Fort Worth, Abilene, Odessa, Midland, San Antonio and Plano. Contact the Scammahorn Law Firm today at 903-595-1000.
