The Barclay Law Firm represents clients in all phases of state and federal income, gift, and estate tax matters and controversies. This includes representing clients in IRS and Missouri Department of Revenue audits. Tax law is complex and ever-changing, which is why it is highly recommended that you seek the professional services of an attorney who is well-versed and experienced in this practice area when faced with an issue or dispute.

  • Preparing and filing tax returns, including understanding and taking advantage of valid deductions and/or credits

Why Hire A Tax Lawyer?

You may be asking yourself if you need a tax lawyer when facing a dispute with any governmental tax agency. Many of our clients have told us that the agent handling their tax audit discouraged their use of professional tax representation. In general, we believe it is a mistake for a taxpayer to fail to retain an attorney during an audit or when a dispute arises with a tax agency. You can make inadvertent mistakes, such as volunteering too much information, which results in the agency expanding the audit beyond the initial scope. With a capable attorney on your side, such errors and pitfalls can be avoided.
