Get the Benefit of In-Depth Knowledge of IRS Procedures From First-Hand Experience.

Although many tax attorneys have advanced degrees in tax, few can understand the way IRS agents think, the language they use, and the steps IRS agents are likely to take in your case better than someone who once sat in their shoes. When you don't know what the IRS is doing, don't understand why they are asking certain questions or for certain documents, or don't understand the technical tax language they are using, it can be intimidating. Daniel Layton's in-depth knowledge can level the playing field. Mr. Layton's insights shine a light on the inner workings of the IRS for his clients in order to anticipate the IRS's next moves and to avoid costly mistakes.
