“There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’  tax planning or tax defense strategy. Each situation is different. Each situation requires the Tax Attorney to review and analyze the constant barrage of recent (daily) legal developments and creatively, legally, and effectively apply the law and his experience and ingenuity to the particular client’s circumstances. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize that online legal services and generalist or mill attorneys, or many times, even our CPA friends  are for the most part, one size fits all, or simply not knowledgeable of tax law’s incredible complexity, dynamism, and subtlety. They may not know how to  design plans  to save taxes or develop a winning strategy to deliver a client from the taxing authorities or crushing tax debt. An experienced tax attorney  can do all of this and more. A tax lawyer sees the subtle shades and permutations of tax law, and how to design, prepare, and implement a tax plan or provide effective, and complete representation  and tax resolution appropriate for a given client.STEVE YAHNIAN, Attorney/CPA, Yahnian Law Corporation

Steve Yahnian has handled a substantial number of tax matters and saved his clients significant tax dollars. He has accomplished this through tax planning, tax debt resolution and other tax services. As a CPA, he has prepared a significant number of tax returns over the years.

Other Tax Advisors, CPAs and Attorneys often refer their clients or client situations to STEVE YAHNIAN when the tax issues or problems are beyond their experience, time constraints, workload or skills. At their request, we either take over the matter completely or alternative, remain in the background reviewing their work, the situation or circumstances, as they develop, thus enabling the tax professional who engages us to assist them, more effectively address the tax issues, or represent their clients and reach a successful resolution or tax savings result.

YAHNIAN TAX is an affiliate of YAHNIAN LAW CORPORATION and of  DSA ACCOUNTING. Each company is 100% owned by D. STEVEN YAHNIAN, Tax Attorney/CPA/CFP, the author of this web site.

YAHNIAN TAX serves as the tax information resource for taxpayers seeking tax assistance. Once you contact YAHNIAN TAX, you will be referred to either YAHNIAN LAW CORPORATION or DSA ACCOUNTING for the appropriate professional services.

YAHNIAN TAX is,  among other roles, a Taxpayer Advocate. Our client objective: Legally minimize or reduce taxes. We do this by using knowledge of the tax law. We accomplish this by reviewing the law and planning strategies, both conventional and cutting edge. Then, by  putting into practice these planning techniques we purpose to reduce our clients’ taxes. We also handle audits when a taxpayer comes to us. Finally, once an assessment has gone final, we are available for appeals and litigation to contest the same. And, if taxpayers come to us with an existing assessment that has gone final, we invoke  tax reduction or liquidation strategies provided by tax law enabling our tax clients to obtain  a fresh start.
