United States Tax Court

The United States Tax Court is a specialty court that exclusively hears tax law cases. The U.S. Tax Court hears tax deficiency cases - cases in which the IRS asserts that the taxpayer has underpaid his or her tax liability. Prepayment of the proposed tax deficiency is not a prerequisite to litigating in Tax Court. Counsel must know the IRC, and rules of practice and procedure, disclosure rules, and the FRE as applied by the Court. 

Our Experience in United States Tax Court Dates Back to 1974

Our history in U.S. Tax Court dates back to 1974. Our staff is composed of a former U.S. Tax Court special trial judge who sat on the bench for 20 years and who previously worked in the IRS Office of Chief Counsel - domestic and international sections.. Another staff member is a former U.S. Tax Court judicial law clerk who went on to become an IRS litigator in the Office of Chief Counsel and then a distinguished law professor, celebrated legal author, and IRC and tax evidence scholar. Then there is a seasoned CPA-United States Tax Court Practitioner who serves as Chief Tax Litigation Counsel; an IRS Special Enrolled Agent who is an expert tax auditor and tax fraud specialist; an expert in international transactions that include mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures; and lastly, a professor emeritus and former White House tax policy advisor who is an IRS approved continuing education provider of U.S. Tax Court trial practice, litigation and appeal preparation.
