Why Hire a Tax Attorney?
Tax Attorneys are experienced in tax law and have the expertise to defend you from numerous IRS and State Tax Authority actions. Communications to an attorney are confidential and privileged which is very crucial in tax cases. Communications to accountants and enrolled agents are not similarly privileged.
One instance in which a tax attorney is your best option is if you have not kept your tax payments up-to-date. Personal problems, business upheavals, and other factors occasionally figure into many people not paying or filing their taxes on time. Tax issues can also be a problem for those who have recently changed their filing status, or for those who are dealing with business taxes.
If you owe back taxes, a tax attorney can help you. This kind of help does not relieve you of your financial obligations; instead, it makes your obligations clear to you, and gives you the information you need to meet your obligations. A tax attorney can help you with the necessary paperwork, figuring how much tax and possible penalty fees you owe, and the most reasonable method and schedule for making your payments.
A tax attorney can also help if there has been a discrepancy with various aspects of your taxes. For example, if your tax return was not completed correctly, resulting in overpayments or making a smaller payment than you should have made, a tax attorney can assist in determining what the true tax liabilities are.
How do you chose a tax attorney? The best way is to find an attorney who has been recommended by a previous client and was completely satisfied with the full scope of his services, this is a good sign that you are dealing with an experienced, qualified professional. Steve has numerous references for his business as a tax attorney. Over 50 percent of his business is through referrals coupled with his over 15 years of experience in tax law.

Steve Vasquez is a great TAX Attorney.
He provides great advice and is always on top of my tax issues. I've been working with Steve for the last several years, and it has always been a terrific experience. He is consistently very responsive on getting back to me regarding any questions or concerns that I ask him, even during the busiest time of the tax season.
He is extremely knowledgeable on complex tax situations, including different types of UPS stock options and UPS employee stock purchase plans. I had some company UPS stock shares that I purchased over 15 years ago, but only just sold recently, with both multiple stock splits as well as company acquisitions over those 15 years for those same shares. But Steve was still able to figure out how to handle the stock sale for my tax returns.
Steve is also very savvy on how to handle the short sale of homes. For my recent short sale, not only was he able to avoid myself paying taxes on the sale, but he even was able to get me a tax refund instead, on top of that!
So incredibly impressive, which I never would have expected! Keep up the great work, Steve!
Very impressive and I will always highly recommend you to my friends and colleagues!

Mr. Vasquez holds degrees from prestigious universities, but as important as being an expert is, he is a person with impeccable morals, ethics, and integrity. Additionally, the personal service he provides goes beyond expectations in that he truly cares about each client as an individual. Moreover, he works hard for every client--he is not motivated by how much money he will earn, but how much money he can help YOU earn, or save, or more.
Mr. Vasquez, with attention to client long-term needs, has expanded his ability to provide financial planning and other services by enduring brutal licensing and accreditation training programs that ensure he is current (as well as ahead of the curve) and competent in financial and tax law, and more!
Without hesitation, I recommend Mr. Steve Vasquez to anyone who looks for credible, ethical, personal, and professional financial service providers.

I first hired Steve nearly 10 years ago. As a Tax man he is far and away above the rest. He is detail minded, he knows the law, he places you first and he talks with you - not at you. I have also used the Law offices of Luis (Steve) Vasquez. No where will you find a man who knows the law better then Steve. No where will you find an attorney who places your needs and your best interest absoutely above all else. I HIGHLY recommend Steve for any Tax or legal needs you may have.
