Q: What is the aprox time and cost to resolve 10 plus years on unfiled taxes , do I need a lawyer or a CPA ?
A: You may need both. I am a lawyer And a CPA. I can help you out. See www.lawyercpa.com and I will give you a complimentary case evaluation.
You may need both an accountant and a tax lawyer. You need an accountant to file the taxes and a tax attorney to help you set up a collection alternative if you owe taxes.
Keep in mind that you will lose attorney-client privilege in regards to the preparation of any returns prepared by an attorney or someone in their office. Sometimes this can be an issue so be careful. Stay away from the places you see advertised on tv. Most tax attorneys can refer you to an accountant if you do not have one.
