About this firm

Located in Austin, Texas, the Law Office of Gerald Brantley is dedicated to effectively minimizing clients' federal taxes and favorably resolving their disputes with the IRS. Mr. Brantley's experience as a tax litigator has taught him to be solution oriented. He provides appropriate, proven tax planning to reduce federal income and estate/gift taxes. When clients are audited, he represents them with the IRS Examination Function. If the IRS Examination Function proposes a tax deficiency or penalty, he negotiates with the IRS Appeals Function and, if necessary, IRS attorneys to settle the case. If negotiation does not produce a satisfactory settlement, he has the proven ability and experience to litigate the case in United States Tax Court ("Tax Court").

Mr. Brantley has more than twenty years of experience as a trial lawyer, having successfully litigated in Tax Court and in state trial and appellate courts in Texas. Licensed to practice by all courts in Texas and Arkansas, Mr. Brantley's current litigation practice focuses on federal tax controversies, mostly in the Tax Court.

Federal tax disputes involve complex legal, procedural and enforcement issues, generating fear and anxiety for taxpayers when they are notified of an audit, face collection of delinquent taxes or find themselves against the IRS in court. With effective representation, many federal tax controversies can be resolved during the audit with the IRS Examination Function or settled after the examination with the IRS Appeals Function. Mr. Brantley believes that taxpayers are best served when the IRS examining agents, appeals officers, and attorneys know that the taxpayer's representative has proven ability to litigate a case if necessary. Mr. Brantley has experience representing both taxpayers and the IRS in Tax Court. This experience translates into positive outcomes for clients, often without the necessity of a costly trial.
