Tax Refunds, Claims and Abatements
If you overpaid a tax or have penalties assessed, we may be able to help you get your money back with interest by filing a claim for refund. Sometimes penalties may also be abated. However, it is important to contact us promptly. Specific statutes of limitations apply, and if you wait too long you may not be eligible for a refund.
If you are claiming a tax refund, representing yourself can be a costly mistake. An experienced lawyer can objectively advocate for your position.
Our firm has expertise on tax refunds and penalty abatement issues. We represent individuals and businesses in California and throughout the United States.
We file claims for refund and abatement (Form 843) with the IRS, as well as refunds from state tax agencies such as the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the Employment Development Department (EDD) and State Board of Equalization (BOE).
If your claim for a refund is denied through the administrative process, we can file a lawsuit against the agency in the U.S. District Court, Bankruptcy Court, or state court.
We also file claims for levy releases, lien releases, and return of garnished wages.Contact Us About a Tax Refund Issue
