The contentious phase occurs after maintaining a disagreement with the administration and collection of taxes. A tax lawyer can intervene either following a tax audit, or when a taxpayer entrusts him with his case directly at first instance or on appeal.
In case of control, it is preferable to request it as soon as possible. The presence of a lawyer from the start of the procedure makes it possible to prevent the taxpayer, because of the reverential fear that the tax authorities inspire in him, from acknowledging in writing that he is the author of acts, which put an end to end are then liable to be penalized in this way.
The lawyer specializing in tax litigation intervenes both as counsel, in order to manage the criminal tax risk in the company or for individuals, but also at the litigation stage to defend you or assert your rights before the criminal courts. and in the first place before the commission of fiscal offences.
