Tax Collections

Southern California Tax Law Collection Lawyer

At The Law Office of Howard S. Borenstein, I help clients who have tax problems. My advice and representation can preserve your rights, and can give you the financial breathing room you need.

Resolving Delinquent Taxes

Federal and state tax collectors have significant authority in collecting the taxes an audited or delinquent taxpayer owes. In addition, the Internal Revenue Service, California Franchise Tax Board, California Employment Development Department, and the California State Board of Equalization each have different rules and operating styles. A skilled tax lawyer can minimize the burden through effective presentation of the facts and understanding the dynamics of a particular tax agency.

With over 25 years experience as a tax collections attorney, I have the knowledge and skill to effectively resolve your tax liability. I will work with you to decide the best course of action for you, your family and/or your business in light of your financial situation. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, I may seek to:

  • Reduce the taxes you owe through an Offer In Compromise
  • Place your tax liability in Non-Collectible status
  • Establish an Installment Agreement
  • Analyze your tax liability for potential bankruptcy discharge

Owing taxes impacts all aspects of a person’s life. I believe in addressing the underlying issues as well as solving the immediate crisis posed by the particular tax issue.

The Law Office of Howard S. Borenstein represents individual and business clients facing all types of tax problems. Howard S. Borenstein can provide effective legal guidance throughout the tax audit, tax collection, and if need be, the tax litigation process.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“This man is AMAZING!! My husband has always been very difficult to please regarding his Family Trust - which has been re-written over the years probably 4 times. I have never seen anyone be able to explain, clarify, make awesome suggestions and gain my husband’s confidence and admiration like Mr. Borenstein. He is amazingly sharp with the memory that surpasses genius. We have been working with him at least 2 years. He is not into this profession for the money. His ethics shine through!” Anonymous
