Biography

My goal is to help individuals and businesses facing IRS and New York State tax problems obtain the most favorable result possible while minimizing their stress and maximizing their time.
My firm has focused exclusively on the resolution of IRS and New York State tax controversies for over 25 years. Our attorneys have the in-depth experience taxpayers need when dealing with tax officials and negotiating a resolution that saves them significant time, money and worry. We represent taxpayers before the IRS and New York State Department of Taxation and Finance on matters such as:

• New York State and New York City residency audits
• IRS and NYS tax collection
• New York State sales tax audits
• Liens, levies and seizures
• Voluntary disclosures
• Installment Agreements
• Offers in Compromise
• Innocent spouse relief claims
• New York State Conciliation Conferences
• Individual and business tax audits
• IRS Appeals
• Penalty abatement request

Whether you’re a business owner suffering the consequences of poor recordkeeping, a NY resident with more than one home, an owner of a restaurant that has been padlocked for unpaid sales taxes, or an average taxpayer that just fell behind for a few years... we work around the clock to help you put your tax problems behind you.

Let's talk. Reach out to me via email at ktenenbaum@litaxattorney.com or call my office at 631-465-5000. Visit our website, www.litaxattorney.com for more information and additional resources.
