FAQ

A tax lawyer is a type of attorney who specializes in tax law. Tax law is a complex and constantly evolving area of law that covers federal, state, and local taxation. Tax lawyers advise individuals and businesses on tax-related matters, including:

  • Tax planning: Helping clients minimize their tax liability by identifying tax planning opportunities and developing strategies to reduce taxes
  • Tax compliance: Ensuring that clients are in compliance with all relevant tax laws and regulations
  • Tax controversies: Representing clients in disputes with tax authorities such as the IRS or state tax agencies
  • Tax litigation: Representing clients in court proceedings related to tax disputes
  • Tax exemptions and credits: Advising clients on tax exemptions and credits that may be available to them

Tax lawyers may work in private practice, for a law firm, or for the government. They may also work in-house for businesses, helping to advise on tax-related issues and ensure compliance with tax laws.

The cost of hiring a tax lawyer can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including:

  • The lawyer’s experience and credentials
  • The complexity of the case
  • The location of the lawyer’s practice
  • The amount of time the lawyer anticipates spending on the case

In general, tax lawyers charge by the hour, and their hourly rates can range from $100 to $800 or more per hour. Some tax lawyers may also charge a flat fee for certain services, such as reviewing and preparing tax returns.

It’s important to keep in mind that the cost of hiring a tax lawyer can be significant, especially if the case is complex or involves a large amount of money. However, the peace of mind and expertise that a tax lawyer can provide may be well worth the cost for some individuals and businesses.

A change in tax law should be accounted for in the period in which the change becomes effective. For example, if a change in tax law is enacted on January 1, 2022 and becomes effective on that date, the change should be accounted for in the 2022 tax year.

If a change in tax law is enacted mid-way through a tax year, the change may be accounted for using either the full-year or the partial-year approach. The full-year approach assumes that the change in tax law was effective for the entire year, while the partial-year approach prorates the change based on the number of days in the year that the change was in effect.

It’s important to note that changes in tax law may also have retroactive effects, meaning that they may apply to tax periods that have already ended. In these cases, the change should be accounted for in the tax period to which it applies.
