Non-Filer Defense

We have helped many desperate taxpayers come into compliance. Perhaps one of our most difficult and unusual cases involved a taxpayer from another state who had moved to Massachusetts. The department of revenue in the other state had obtained a judgment against the taxpayer for failure to pay taxes alleged due the other state. We represented the taxpayer in court.  We obtained continuances that bought us time. We used that time to obtain the documentation supporting the preparation of an accurate state income tax. Ultimately, we settled the case for the amount due plus the fees billed by opposing counsel to enforce the tax judgment against our client.
