Tax Lawyer In San Francisco
I am attorney Connie Yi. Over the past 10 years, I have successfully helped individuals throughout the Bay Area resolve a wide array of tax-related conflicts, including tax compliance issues, and I have represented individuals during the IRS audit process. I also represent individuals involved in tax-related litigation.
My firm also helps clients reduce their current and future tax liabilities through strategic estate planning. By taking advantage of a multitude of tax-savings devices — such as charitable gifting — I am able to build comprehensive estate plans that reduce my clients' current income tax liabilities and future gift and estate taxes.
Representing Your Best Interests During The IRS Audit Process
Many individuals don't realize that their tax preparers including certified public accountants (CPAs) may be held liable for any mistakes or misrepresentations made on their tax returns. This creates a conflict of interest between taxpayers and their CPAs. Many taxpayers wish to convince the IRS that any underreported income on their tax return was due to reliance on the advice of their tax preparer or CPA, while CPAs want to limit their own liability by showing they were not at fault. In addition, your CPA may be required to testify against you during the audit process.
Because of this conflict, using a CPA to represent you during the audit process can actually hurt your chances of being successful. Instead, hire an attorney who is required — by law — to act in accordance with your best interests.
In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a CPA. By combining my background in finance with my legal knowledge, I am often able to provide clients greater insight during the IRS audit process. I also prepare gift and estate tax returns.
