The IRS is the most powerful collection agency in the U.S. With a seemingly unlimited amount of resources, the IRS is able to thoroughly investigate an individual’s personal and business financial background in order to collect any debts owed. Tax problems can be twofold in that individuals with federal tax debt can face both civil and criminal charges that may result in added interest and penalties, fines, and possible incarceration.
My name is Norman D. McKellar, and I am a licensed tax attorney in Knoxville, Tennessee, handling both civil and criminal tax issues nationwide. I have been voted by my peers as a “Top Attorney” in Cityview Magazine for Income Tax and IRS Resolutions. I am also a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

If you are contacted by an IRS Criminal Division Agent, you should immediately contact an attorney prior to making contact with the Agent. By speaking with an Agent, you may jeopardize your chances of success and ultimately you may prove to be your own worst witness.
