TAX RESOLUTION AND TAX CONTROVERSY
We help clients with audits/appeals, foreign bank/FATCA/crypto compliance,
tax debt relief/Offer in Compromise, and unpaid/unfiled taxes
If you are being audited by federal and/or state tax authorities, we can help you navigate this daunting process more effectively than your tax preparer or accountant, whose errors or oversights may have led to the audit in the first place.
If you owe federal and/or state taxes, interest, and penalties that you cannot afford to pay, either now or in the foreseeable future, we can help you negotiate to pay a lower amount (an "Offer in Compromise") to clear the debt. We can help you determine if you're likely to qualify for this program.
If you are a U.S. citizen or green card holder living anywhere in the world, or you are currently "resident" in the U.S. (regardless of citizenship), then every year you must report foreign income and certain assets to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and/or Treasury Department, even if you have paid taxes in another country and even if you don't owe U.S. taxes on these. Non-compliance can carry serious penalties. We are experts in helping you comply with these complicated rules, and in helping you resolve any existing issues.
If you have received an unfavorable decision from a federal and/or state tax authority—whether from an audit or some other action—we will help you prepare an appeal and navigate the appeals process, including litigation in U.S. Tax Court, if appropriate.
Use crypto? Whether you're a miner, investor, speculator, or small-business owner who takes Bitcoin, we can help you comply with the tax rules, as well as help you negotiate payment of back taxes you owe on previously unreported gains.
We can't make your tax obligations go away, but we can help you pay what you owe while still meeting other important financial obligations in your life by negotiating a payment plan or installment agreement on your behalf. We can also help you get your account into Currently Not Collectible (CNC) status with the IRS when appropriate.
Having a tax lien placed on your home or other assets, or having your bank accounts levied, can paralyze your life. We can help release liens and levies as soon as possible through our expedited service. We can also help release garnishment of your wages or Social Security payments.
If you filed taxes jointly with your current or former spouse, and they failed to report income or pay taxes, you may be held liable for their debts. We can help you petition to be found innocent of their mistakes, relieving you from their liability.
Gold Path Tax was founded by experienced tax attorney Goldie Greenstein as an honest, client-focused alternative to the many over-promising, under-delivering—sometimes even unethical or fraudulent—tax resolution firms out there. Our boutique tax law practice bridges the gap between mass-market tax resolution firms run by non-attorneys and the ultra-specialized tax controversy practices of big corporate law firms. We bring legal ethics, expertise, and professionalism to the field of tax resolution while keeping our fees affordable.
We represent clients in all 50 states, as well as U.S. taxpayers living abroad, in both federal and state tax matters. They are hard-working professionals and small-business owners who happen to need help with tax problems. Many have experienced a personal crisis or cash flow issue that forced them to defer their tax obligations. Some have made mistakes and want to do the right thing. Others hired a tax preparer or accountant who failed to do their job properly, leading to IRS actions. And some are expatriates, digital nomads, U.S. residents, or naturalized citizens caught up in very complex international tax compliance rules, or crypto traders struggling to comply with lagging tax regulations.
Our mission is to help clients facing state and federal tax issues to get the best possible outcome for their situation. No outcome can be guaranteed, but high-quality legal representation ensures your case will be handled professionally and that you will receive counsel at every stage of the process. Tax laws and regulations are a maze; we'll help you navigate it.
