For taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service is the bad guy in most situations. It is the agency that issues audits that can result in notices of back taxes, penalties and other tax-related issues. A tax attorney will always protect the interests of a taxpayer, but the truth is that there are instances in which the IRS does too.
Minnesota Vikings fans will recall that Michael Bennett was our first round draft pick in 2001. He came to us from the University of Wisconsin where he completed a record-setting 40-yard dash in 4.13 seconds. His first year with the Vikings he replaced Roger Smith. His second year with the Vikings he rushed for 1,296 yards and caught 351 receptions for a trip to the Pro Bowl.
The Internal Revenue Service has more than one problem. Noncompliance, scofflaws, tax evasion, plus plain vanilla tax errors found during random audits of Minnesota taxpayers are just a few of the issues with which the IRS is dealing.
