Tax controversy is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of disputes between taxpayers and tax collectors. Whether you are involved in a dispute with a California tax agency or with the IRS, a tax controversy can have a significant impact on you, your business and your bottom line.
These cases are often complex and require a dedicated team of skilled attorneys to ensure that your rights are protected and your dispute is properly resolved. At Rodi Pollock, we have a skilled team committed to handling all types of tax controversies. Our tax practice is led by Hank Pramov and Elizabeth Nelson, who each have decades of experience representing clients in state and federal tax matters.
Tax Controversies Often Start With An Audit
The majority of tax disputes begin with an audit. Even at this early stage, it is vital to secure counsel to guide you through the process. In some cases disputes can be resolved prior to court involvement, which can save you time and money.

- Income, Sales and Employment Tax
