Tax Controversy

At Plush Smith PA, we analyze the nature of issues at the center of tax controversy, including the applicable policy and law, practical precedence, and potential cost-saving solutions. We have the resources and experience necessary to address controversies presented by the IRS and various state departments. Our staff will work diligently to research your unique facts and circumstances in a timely manner to avoid the build-up of penalties and interest, and to settle outstanding tax matters before property seizure. The key to dealing with tax controversy is immediate and decisive communication, and our professionals are committed to acting quickly on your behalf and being available to address your concerns.

  • Revenue Agent's Report (RAR) Analysis and Consulting
    A RAR can significantly change your tax position if an examiner finds that you paid too much or too little tax. Plush Smith PA can prepare you for the process of an examination and advise your actions in response to the examiner’s report.
  • Information Document Requst (IDR) Response
    In 2002, the IRS formalized the IDR process and mandated a 20-day initial response time. Delinquency in response can lead to severe penalties for the taxpayer. The inflexibility of these deadlines requires early and frequent communication between the taxpayer, the taxpayer’s representative and the IRS examiner.

Plush Smith PA also advises clients with issues in other tax controversy areas, including response to state notices and the preparation of amended returns.
