TAX/IRS/FRANCHISE TAX BOARD (FTB) DISPUTES

Chuck represents clients against the IRS, Franchise Tax Board (“FTB”), State Board of Equalization (“SBE”) and other tax agencies. Because of attorney-client privilege, it is important to have legal representation for your own interests in disputes with taxing authorities. This is a level of protection that a CPA cannot offer (unless they are also an attorney.)
