A strategic and intelligent approach

Do you have legal options? At most tax resolution companies, representation from licensed attorneys is not an option, providing limitations to your claim. In addition, some lawyers might not be aware that the tax code has changed, as a result of providing an exorbitant amount of legal services. Our proficiency and knowledge will afford the difference. Thinking outside the box for the best solutions for our clients is the rule and not the exception.


A virtually unaddressed option by most companies.

'Bankruptcy' is almost entirely absent from discussion in most other tax agencies? In recent years, the bankruptcy discussion has become extremely limited. As a result, individuals are unaware that filing for bankruptcy will sometimes secure complete liberation from tax debt. Filing for bankruptcy is more than likely a last alternative and, for some, it is truly the most ideal solution. This option should always be available to you, even if other companies are not qualified to file.

Claim For Refund

Discovering and resolving errors in the past.

Errors in previous year's tax return occur more frequently than most individuals would imagine. At the Law Offices of Yael N. Lazar, PC we will scrutinize your previous filings for errors, and walk you through the entire claims process.

Lower Your Taxes

Do you want lower taxes?

We can help you reduce your tax burdens with amended returns. These amended returns are also applicable to penalties and interest accrued. If your previous tax filing failed to account for every deduction that you are eligible for, we will review your returns and file amended returns.

We will also ensure proper audit assessment through our audit reconsideration, disputing and reducing what you owe if the audit was assessed improperly.

Sometimes there is a disagreement regarding the liability of an individual. In this case, we present an offer in compromise doubt as to liability.

Non-Collectible Status

Solutions for payment inability.

It is critical to your claim to speak to an attorney, prior to securing "non-collectible" status. Sure, articulating your claim to the IRS might grant the status of "non collectible," but if your position does not fulfill this status, you will face stringent collection from the IRS. We are dedicated to acquiring the necessary information that best defends your claim, as well as informing you every step of the way.

Offer In Compromise

Be educated.

Not all tax debt requires an offer in compromise application. Actually, 3/4 of these applications receive rejections and are not even the ideal solution. The Law Offices of Yael N. Lazar, PC will decide if an offer in compromise is your best solution, acquiring all of the vital credentials, and enhancing the best transaction.

Payment In Full

Reduce Penalties and Interest

The tax code can be confusing and the IRS understands its intricacy. As a result, stringent penalties are instated for violations. We can request penalty abatement if you had reasonable cause for not paying your taxes when they were due.

Our firm has acquired a great deal of knowledge with the appeals procedure, managing claims, and filing petitions with the tax court. Tax law is our specialty and your peace of mind is our priority.

Voluntary Disclosure

Could you be tied to legal or criminal dealings?

The IRS requires individuals to declare all revenue earned annually, if you are a citizen of the United States or possess permanent residency. Many individuals are unaware that annual revenue encompasses any advantage producing profit. Failure to declare income earned can result in examination for tax evasion, steep monetary fines, and imprisonment.

In 2011, revisions to the Offshore Voluntary Compliance Initiative (OVDI) were made, maintaining stringent consequences for violation. An individual's claim, adherence to procedure, and management of the claim will orchestrate any legal penalties that ensue. The best thing one can do is to address the problem with the IRS first, as opposed to waiting for them to knock on your door.
