Why use us?

Do you need to have your accounting books reconstructed? We can handle that too. We know what it probably looks like... old reciepts, bills and returned checks in no particular order thrown in a box waiting for the day you have time to go through it all. Let us reconstruct your accounting records so you can move forward and get your taxes done.

Why use a tax attorney to resolve your problems with the IRS? In the United States, communications between accountants and their clients are usually not privileged. A person with aggressive tax strategies or who is worried about accusations of questionable accounting, such as tax evasion, may want to work only with an attorney or only with an accountant who is also an attorney.

We are a local law firm. Unlike many of the tax resolution firms advertising on the internet and TV we have offices in Tucson, AZ where you can meet with the attorney that will be handling your case. Reviewing your documents in person with an attorney is much easier and more reassuring than dealing with a firm located in another State.

We are licensed by the State Bar of Arizona. Because we are tax lawyers we are held to a much higher standard than most accountants and tax preparers. If we fail to deliver you have recourse through the State Bar of Arizona.

Unlike many of the firms advertising on TV we do not employ telephone sales people or so-called 'Tax Advisors'. At the Law Office of Arthur Weiss, P.C. you will work directly with the attorney handling your case and not an intermediary. Your lawyer will return your calls and respond to your requests for information in a timely and responsible manner. Don’t expect to spend time on the phone with a salesperson.

We deal with the IRS so you don't have to. At the Law Firm of Arthur Weiss, P.C. we are highly skilled at navigating the maze of regulations, laws, protocols, negotiating settlements, and mediating IRS and Arizona tax issues on behalf of our clients. Call for a free phone consultation.
