When It’s Time To Deal With Your Tax Dispute

You need more than a tax accountant. More than a tax attorney. You need both at the same time—and that’s exactly what you’ll have, when you hire my firm. I’m a tax attorney today, but I started my career in accounting. I spent years preparing hundreds of tax returns, tax planning with Fortune 500 Companies and small businesses, dealing with IRS and state and local audits, and researching the most challenging tax issues for one of the world's largest accounting and consulting firms (one of the Big Four firms). So I know taxes. And that can make all the difference when it’s time to deal with the IRS, the Alabama Department of Revenue—or a judge.

No one can guarantee results. But I can assure you that I will work hard on your behalf every day. And most of all, being your advocate in a complex—and sometimes confusing—world. Let me be your guide.

Facing the IRS for the first time?

I will make it easy for them to understand your story. I know how busy IRS agents are—and what they need to hear to consider your case as favorably as possible.

Concerned about a court date or meeting with an revenue agent?

I will stand before the judge in your defense. I’ve been there before and know how to present your story in the best light.

Missed a filing deadline?

I know more than a traditional tax attorney about how to overcome it. With my accounting background and knowledge of tax law combined, I’m better prepared to help you take the next, best step.

Not sure what to do next?

I will tell you what your rights and responsibilities are. So that together, we can plan your next steps with confidence.

My firm is experienced in handling disputes with governmental taxing authorities over the amount or collection of taxes owed by an individual or business. Tax controversies begin with a letter of notice from a taxing authority detailing the tax amount in dispute and the reasons behind it. Issues range from simple matters such as providing substantiation (i.e., receipts for expenses) for deductions and credits—to more complicated issues such as interpretation of tax code, which may require appearing before a state administrative board, state court or the United States Tax Court.

If you have a tax dispute or need tax relief, call me now. Every day you wait may only make the problem worse. I can help.

Tax Practice Areas 

IRS audits and litigation

Being audited or even contacted by the IRS or state tax authorities can be a frightening and intimidating experience. The best way to achieve a favorable outcome in such situations is to work with an experienced tax attorney. We have represented Fortune 500 companies, S corporations, partnerships, LLCs and individuals for over 20 years.  Tax attorney and CPA, Gene M. Bowman has a successful track record in dealings with the IRS and state tax authorities.  Although most tax disputes are resolved at the IRS audit and appeals level, if a favorable outcome is not achieved administratively, taxpayers have the right to litigate their cases in the federal court system.  The United States Tax Court is the most common forum in which these types of cases are litigated.  The Bowman Law Firm has decades of experience successfully representing clients during the IRS tax audit, appeals and litigation processes.   Our clients include individual taxpayers, corporations, LLCs, S corporations and other entities.  Our attorney and CPA has worked for the Big 4 Accounting Firms, Fortune 500 Companies and in private legal practice.

Tax Return preparation 

The Bowman Law Firm has over 25 years of experience preparing, reviewing and filing tax returns for individuals, trusts, partnerships, LLCs, corporations and S corporations.  We file prior year tax returns for non-compliant individuals and businesses that haven't filed returns for years.  We assist non-filers with filing their prior year returns and getting on the right track with IRS.

business Tax

When businesses are dealing with complicated tax issues, a lot is at stake. Whether an organization is facing IRS audit, structuring a sophisticated business transaction or dealing with a payroll tax controversy, sound legal advice is essential. An experienced tax lawyer at Bowman Law Firm is committed to delivering the highest quality legal services to each of our clients.  Bowman Law Firm treats its clients as partners and works with them to understand their business and financial objectives. We have represented clients before the Internal Revenue Service,  IRS Appeals, the United States Tax Court, the Alabama Department of Revenue, and other state taxing authorities.

Criminal Tax

The Bowman Law Firm has years of experience successfully resolving criminal cases. Early intervention is the key to a successful outcome in criminal matters.  For some taxpayers, an IRS civil tax audit can turn into a criminal investigation.  Other taxpayers do not suspect they are being investigated until they are contacted by an IRS Special Agent.  We help our clients cooperate with investigators to the extent required by law, while fully asserting all available defenses, including the constitutional privilege against self-incrimination.  A criminal attorney knows that an effective defense requires early action, expert negotiation skills and the ability to formulate and present a compelling case.
