Tax Help

Whether you are an individual or a business, the Kugelman Law tax attorneys in California can assist you with all your tax needs, including a tax audit, tax appeals representation, tax litigation, tax preparation, cryptocurrency accounting and audits, or any other kind of tax help.

The Internal Revenue Service is a bureau of the Department of Treasury responsible for the nation’s tax system. Collecting more than $3 trillion each year, the IRS employs about 80,000 people and has a budget of approximately $11 billion.

But the IRS is a fragmented bureaucracy enforcing confusing tax laws. Most taxpayers lack knowledge and experience required to resolve IRS issues, but trying to deal with tax audits, appeals, voluntary disclosures, or other tax issues does not have to be an overwhelming and exhausting process.

At Kugelman Law, our attorneys leverage their prior IRS and U.S. Tax Court experience and intimate understanding of how the system works to navigate the administrative and litigation process.

We understand how difficult and stressful it can be to deal with tax problems. That is why it is our goal to provide you with premium quality tax counseling and assistance to simplify and streamline the entire process.

We can help you with any tax issues including, but not limited to:

  • Audit Defense
  • Criminal Tax Defense
  • Cryptocurrency Tax Reporting and Compliance
  • IRS Appeals
  • Missing Tax Returns
  • Offshore Account Disclosure
  • Resolving Tax Debt
  • U.S. Tax Court Litigation

Cryptocurrency tax issues are unique in that the IRS considers cryptocurrency an existential threat to tax compliance and has prioritized audits of cryptocurrency income. However, the IRS’s capacity and understanding of cryptocurrency is limited. Our team of California cryptocurrency lawyers is an industry leader in accounting, reporting, and audit representation for cryptocurrency matters.

Kugelman Law tax attorneys in California strive to effectively and efficiently resolve each client’s tax issue - no matter the size or complexity. To that end, the firm has developed working relationships with experienced outside accountants, CPAs, and bookkeepers to complete the representation.

Alexander Kugelman is a California tax lawyer concentrating on tax controversies, domestic and international tax compliance, and tax collection defense. His experience includes four years of federal government court experience at the U.S. Tax Court and a U.S. District Court. That background blends substantive tax law knowledge with administrative and litigation experience. This unique combination differs from that of an accountant or a general practitioner attorney.

Mindy Meigs co-counsels all IRS matters, including collections, audits, and litigations. Her 15 years spent as an IRS Chief Counsel attorney enables her to provide her clients an inside perspective of how the IRS operates. That immense IRS experience and procedural knowledge allows Mindy to leverage the process in her clients’ favor.

Kugelman Law has a successful track record of helping hundreds of clients throughout California, including clients in San Francisco and Irvine, with myriad tax help issues. If you need a tax lawyer in California, then please contact Kugelman Law today for a consultation to better understand your tax help options.

Alexander helped me break down my tax situation and used his expertise to figure out the next actionable steps, make sure that all the bases were covered (that I wasn't aware even existed), and confirm that things were done correctly. If you are confused and stuck in a difficult tax situation, Alexander will guide you forward and help you confidently resolve the issue. Henry Wang

If you are having tax trouble, Alexander is the one to help you. He was very professional, personable, and easy to reach. His explanation of the entire process is helpful for easing the stress that is associated with tax trouble. We never felt intimidated or out of the loop while working with him. The process was handled to our liking and we are satisfied with the results. Even the after care has been phenomenal! Tony W.
★★★★★

Alexander has been a life saver! I got dragged into some serious IRS issues with a complicated foreign assignment component, which included divorce. Alexander has been working with me to resolve directly with the IRS. Alexander is detail oriented, responsive and I trust him to guide me. I will be using Alexander for all tax related matters from now on! He is stuck with me forever. Eve T.
★★★★★
Alexander helped me understand the IRS audit process and prepared my response. There were certain records that I had lost, but he suggested alternatives that the IRS accepted. Even better, he showed up at the audit for me and I never actually had to talk with the IRS. I didn't have to pay any penalties. I'd definitely recommend hiring Alexander to deal with an IRS issue.
