Why Choose a Fort Lauderdale Tax Attorney?
Unfortunately, South Florida is known as the tax fraud capital of the US due to the many unauthorized and incompetent tax preparers, and even many criminal tax preparers. Many times, the innocent taxpayer just goes to who they assume is a professional, only to find out later that the so-called preparer ended up preparing a fraudulent tax return, stole their identity or maybe didn’t even file their tax return but collected payment.
Sometimes, it’s the taxpayers’ fault for ‘refund shopping’ for whoever could get them the biggest refund. Unfortunately, places that promise the ‘biggest refund in town’ often are a bright red flag and could potentially be fraudulent. By working with a professional with vast knowledge of US tax laws and experience negotiating with the IRS, you can have the peace of mind of knowing your tax matters are in good hands. The Law Office of Ray Haselman handles a wide variety of tax problems with professionalism and efficiency.
