Why would I want a tax attorney to represent me instead of my accountant? 3 Answers as of November 16, 2010

I know my accountant, and he knows my taxes. He filed them after all. What is the advantage of having an attorney represent my case to the IRS instead of him?

If the action proceeds to court, an accountant cannot represent you. In addition, an accountant will not be familiar with how the IRS applies the law.
