The Tax Division represents the United States in a broad spectrum of litigation in federal and state courts across the country. Trial attorneys with the Tax Division have a unique opportunity to handle some of the most complex and important civil cases in the courts today. These include suits involving the legality of complex tax shelters, suits to enjoin promoters of tax scams and other fraudulent activity, and a wide variety of other affirmative and defensive litigation related to the collection of taxes and the uniform administration of the nation's tax laws. Tax Division attorneys at all levels are given significantly more responsibility for the conduct of these cases than they would normally receive in either the public or the private sector. The trial attorneys work in a collegial professional environment with the support of experienced litigators and a robust training program.
