The Ins and Outs of Being a Tax Attorney
Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Just in time for April 15, the official deadline for filing an individual tax return, we decided to dedicate this specific blog post to telling you what exactly a tax attorney does. Sure, we gave you more information about what areas of the law we practice in last month’s blog post, but if your eyes glaze over and you find yourself falling asleep when scrolling through the Internal Revenue Service’s website, then maybe we can liven up the idea of being a tax lawyer for you.

First thing’s first: while shows like “Law & Order,” “L.A. Law,” “Matlock,” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” make the life of lawyer seem glamorous and that the career is nothing but constant court dates, this isn’t the case — especially if you’re a tax attorney. You see, depending on what area of the law a lawyer practices, he or she may never see the inside of a courtroom at all (the IRS’s site is starting to look a little more interesting now, isn’t it?). Of course, we at Wolterman Law Office, our associates, and other tax lawyers in the business certainly love what we do. But we didn’t want to get your hopes up that tax attorneys would be putting tax evaders and tax criminals behind bars every week like Hollywood has basically made the profession out to be. Now that we have that out of the way, we can get down to the real business: taxes.

Before you groan or move your mouse cursor onward to find another blog post to idle away your work hours with, hear us out. It isn’t all as bad as it seems. To put it simply, a tax lawyer practices tax law. While you may be kicking our behinds for that bad “reveal,” the specific scope of tax law a tax attorney practices depends on the firm. At Wolterman, our firm in particular focuses on individual and business tax matters. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will solely be filing taxes when April 15 rolls around, but we can help you with Ohio Department of Revenue and federal IRS taxation matters. Tax law covers the tax process, which in turn covers estates, properties, transactions, income, and more, and all of the subsequent charges by the government on these effects.

While this isn’t our first tax return day, we realize it may be yours. That’s why, as a group of licensed tax attorneys, the Wolterman Law Office team can assist you with taxes in a variety of ways. Skilled tax lawyers — and those on the Wolterman team are among the best at what they do — can help minimize taxes. We can even assist you by communicating with IRS officials so you don’t have to (they too aren’t at all like what Hollywood has made them out to be). Our team of tax attorneys can assist you with real estate tax issues, estate and gift tax planning, wealth transfer tax planning, interest and penalty abatement, and tax audits, litigation and appeals, among other tax law services. To see the complete list of tax law services we can offer you, click here.

And it isn’t just individuals who need help with taxes, of course. Businesses big and small, new and established need professional help with their taxes as well. That’s where tax attorneys come in. And with a team of experienced tax attorneys to help you (such as the great team at Wolterman), businesses can save money through corporate tax planning.

All in all, taxes aren’t as exciting as your favorite band’s concert may be. But knowing that a tax attorney can assist you in parts of the tax law process, such as tax controversy or corporate tax planning — and while all that may still make you yawn — will certainly alleviate some of the stress out of your life.
