Resolve your IRS Problems Quickly with Our Professional Team of Tax Lawyers

Your entire tax case is handled by John E. Ellsworth – this is our secret.
John handles every aspect of a tax case himself.  Every IRS phone call is made by John; every letter is drafted by John; every meeting or dealing with the government is done only by John. We believe there is no such thing as a routine tax audit, or call or letter to the government. They all mean something and nothing should be overlooked or taken for granted. There are no salesmen or assistants working on your confidential tax audit case at any time. Of course John also relies on the valuable assistance of a select group of CPA’s and professionals to help him develop your IRS tax case. But when it’s all said and done, it is John E. Ellsworth’s opinion and his expertise that will be presented to the IRS and Tax Court judges. Please compare this level of tax case service and applied expertise to that offered by others. You will be amazed at what a difference this extra protection and care can make in the outcome of your tax audit!

A tax attorney from ChicagoTaxLawyerFirm.com is highly skilled and highly specialized. There is simply no higher designation available.  Evening and weekend hours are available by appointment.

Why do you Need Income Tax Lawyers?

Your first line of defense is John Ellsworth, tax audit attorney.  John has 30 years of experience dealing with the IRS and has defended every kind of taxpayer and entity over the years.

Let’s use a typical audit as an example of how we help.  The first thing we’re going to do in your defense is make sure we have the Information Document Request in hand.  This is the document filed by the IRS that tells us exactly which of your documents they want to see.  We then assign a staff member from our Document Staff to work with you in assembling those documents.  Sometimes we need to help you retrieve missing documents, sometimes we need to help you replace missing documents, and sometimes we need to create an affidavit to be filed in lieu of documents.

Second we’re going to meet with the IRS without you.  In our experience there’s nothing more dangerous than allowing the IRS unfettered access to a taxpayer.  That’s how Martha Stewart got in trouble and went to prison – not for what she had done but for what she told the investigators.  So John is going to insulate you from the IRS auditors and examiners.

Third, we’re going to meet with the IRS auditor and turnover your documents and affidavits, if any are used.  We’re going to answer the questions they wanted to ask you and we’re going to provide answers that are truthful and forthcoming while at the same time protecting you from your dealings with the IRS.  Sometimes people are missing documents or sometimes they have estimated deductions – we’re going to handle these situations with the IRS so that the issue doesn’t develop into something far more serious.

There are many other steps involved, but these should give you a pretty good idea how we make this audit work to your advantage so that you’re being proactive rather than reactive.
