AUSTIN TAX ATTORNEY GERALD BRANTLEY
Austin Tax Attorney Gerald Brantley is dedicated to helping clients when the Internal Revenue Service claims they owe more tax than reported on their tax returns. He has over twenty five years of experience as a trial lawyer. His tax litigation trial experience equips him to provide zealous, effective representation for his Austin and central Texas clients. His goal is to ensure that his clients pay no more tax than they are legally obligated to pay.
In 1992 Gerald was hired by the IRS Office of Chief Counsel as a tax attorney in their office located in Austin, Texas. As senior counsel representing the IRS, he developed and litigated complex tax cases. In 2007 he returned to private practice in Texas, focusing on federal tax cases and controversies.
Federal tax disputes involve difficult legal issues and generate anxiety for taxpayers who face increasingly aggressive tax enforcement officials. As a former government attorney, Gerald knows what to do when his clients are facing the IRS in an audit. He will notify the IRS of his representation and attend all examination conferences. If the examining agent proposes an excessive tax deficiency, he requests a hearing before the IRS Appeals Division in Austin, Texas. If the appeal hearing does not produce a satisfactory settlement, he will file a court petition for redetermination of tax. He has the experience to select cases that merit the resources associated with a contested trial. And he has proven ability to litigate those cases if the IRS will not engage a reasonable settlement.
