MATTHEW WAYNE
 

Before joining Allen Brothers in 2018, Matt worked at a small firm that focused exclusively on criminal, civil, and administrative representation of taxpayers, primarily before the Internal Revenue Service. He has handled virtually every type of tax-related issue, from the filing of fraudulent tax returns to tens of millions of dollars in unreported income, from appeals to claims for refunds, from failure to disclose foreign financial accounts to penalty abatements, from overturning assessment of the trust fund recovery penalty to offers in compromise, from audits to settlements, and everything in between. Matt has represented clients before various federal district courts, the U.S. Tax Court, the Michigan Department of Treasury, the Ohio Department of Taxation, and a variety of local taxing authorities.

 

Matt has a thorough command of the internal structure and inner workings of the IRS, and has achieved successful results for his clients at all levels. Irrespective of the issue or taxing authority in question, he is prepared to assist clients at every step of the way.

 

Additionally, he serves as the prosecutor for the City of Hamtramck.
