Understanding the Law
 
An IRS commissioner once stated that given a choice between taxpayer service and law enforcement, "enforcement will win out every time."  In other words, the IRS would just as soon grind people into powder for failing to comply rather than help them to comply properly in the first place.  In my opinion, it is this attitude primarily drove the problem of IRS abuse.
I have accused the IRS of using tactics of bluff, intimidation and misinformation, and in many cases simply outright lying to citizens concerning their rights and the IRS's powers.  The result of this is that millions of citizens pay taxes they do not owe or are otherwise subjected to abusive treatment.

As a tax attorney with more than twenty-two years of experience dealing with the agency, I have helped thousands of people deal with IRS problems of every description.  The vast majority of citizens I deal with are honest taxpayers doing their level best to comply with an increasingly complicated and convoluted tax code.  The uncertainty that flows from such complexity creates a level of anxiety that most citizens never experience in any other area of their lives.
This uncertainty naturally leads to fear whenever the initials IRS are mentioned.  Most people would rather undergo a root canal than suffer through a tax audit.  The idea of finding an IRS letter in the mailbox terrifies folks because, frankly, they are sure the news must be bad.  This fear and uncertainty creates a second problem.  That is, people generally tend to roll over when it comes to the agency's demands.

Citizens do this believing either or a combination of two things: (1) if the IRS said it, it must be right, or (2) you can't fight the IRS anyway, so why bother?  The answer is the IRS is frequently wrong, and I can help you fight them!
