Tax laws are complicated. Congress constantly makes amendments, changes or adds more rules to the current tax code. The federal tax code started in 1913 and was only 400 pages. It has now grown to more than 74,600 pages!
Our tax laws also contain numerous gray areas that are open to interpretation. Taxpayers who misread the code or don’t come to the same conclusions as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding a provision or regulation could find themselves in hot water. Even an honest mistake could lead to substantial penalties on top of any amount the IRS declares that you owe.
With so many pages and so many details involved in the tax code, it’s important to get someone on your side that understands not only what the tax law says, but how it has been historically applied. Getting the right representation can help you whether you’re going through a tax audit, arguing in tax court or just trying to negotiate payment terms with the IRS.

Having the best tax attorney matters when it’s your money on the line. Polston Tax has over 100 years of combined experience solving tax problems, and it shows in the results we’re able to achieve for our clients!
Over the years, Polston Tax has helped numerous individuals and business owners rectify their tax problems and achieve the most favorable outcome for their situation. Here’s a story of one client we were able to help resolve after they were abandoned by another tax lawyer.
This client came to us after he’d stopped paying his taxes in order to afford his wife’s medical bills when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He had previously hired a different tax resolution chain to help resolve his now high tax liabilities. After a few months, that chain set him up in a payment plan that he couldn’t afford and he ended up defaulting. The chain promised to get him into Currently Not Collectible Status, but then he never heard from them again.
Our client then came to us hoping we could resolve his tax issue once and for all. Our tax attorneys looked over his finances and realized he was going to owe additional taxes when he filed his tax return as he had not been making Estimated Tax Payments.
We decided to delay the IRS until our client filed his tax return so we could include the balance in his resolution. When looking at our client’s resolution options, we realized he had too much equity in his home for an Offer In Compromise. We decided on a Partial Payment Installment Agreement (PPIA) as our client did not believe his income would increase. We worked with the IRS to get the right payment amount by showing our client’s inability to pay a large monthly payment.
After months of aggressively negotiating, they finally agreed to our terms and we were able to secure a $25/mo PPIA for our client, which saved him over $73,000!
Our extensive knowledge of the tax code and its numerous changes combined with our years of experience helping people just like you enable us to offer a wide range of tax law services.
