How Much Do Sacramento Tax Attorneys Charge?

Summary: How much a Sacramento tax attorney will charge depends upon the service. First, California tax attorneys often charge flat fees for particular services.

The best way to find out how much a tax attorney in Sacramento will charge is to call for a free consultation and quote. After a few consultations you’ll have a better understanding of local rates for the particular tax relief option that fits your case.

Currently Not Collectible

The least costly IRS collection task for an attorney to perform is securing currently not collectible status with the IRS. Not everyone qualifies for CNC status, and some who could qualify fail to appropriately complete the paperwork. A Sacramento tax lawyer may charge anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000 to secure Currently Not Collectible Status with the IRS

Installment Agreement

IRS installment agreements can be a good avenue for individuals who need to stop IRS collections, but who have income or assets such that the IRS can collect the balance due in time. An installment agreement will stop IRS collections and create an affordable payment plan. A tax attorney in Sacramento may charge anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000 for an individual and potentially double those amounts for a business.

Offer in Compromise

Many people have heard of an offer in compromise with the IRS, but few are successful in reaching this compromise without a tax attorney. To propose a viable offer in compromise your tax attorney must calculate your reasonable collection potential; something people without an attorney rarely do successfully. When successful, the taxpayer can essentially settle their debt with the IRS for less than the total amount owed, and in light of the potential savings and difficulty a tax attorney in Sacramento may charge an individual anywhere from $5,000 to $7,500.
