Have you been selected for a tax audit? Let us help you
We all dread the thought of an IRS audit or examination. Tax audits can be stressful and complicated as you must be prepared to explain the nature of your income and substantiate the expenses and deductions claimed on your tax return. If the IRS assesses additional taxes and interest, the adjustments are generally matched by the State making an already difficult situation much worse.
Using a tax attorney to help with an audit can significantly increase your chances of getting a better outcome. Many times individuals don’t realize that audits can go both ways, you may actually end up being owed money after an audit. A tax attorney can analyze your situation and find the best approach to take in order to get the best outcome. The IRS actually prefers working with professional tax representatives because it makes their job easier and helps the process move along more efficiently, which can actually result in a more favorable decision.
Upon hiring our firm we will file a Power Of Attorney Form signed by you which authorizes our representation. This will allow the following:
• Audit communications are directed to our firm and we are in direct contact with the IRS or State tax agent assigned to your audit.
• Research any issues that are likely to come up during the audit.
• Respond to the agent’s inquiries and requests for information.
• Meet with the IRS or State tax agent in person as required.
• Negotiate and settle taxes owed if you end up owing more money during the audit and cannot pay.
• Handle any unforeseen issues that may arise during the audit.
• Get your audit underway without the stress of handling it on your own.
We will communicate directly with the agent and build a persuasive case on your behalf because we know how to present your case with legal argument and tax authority. Of course, if we cannot reach agreement with the agent, then we have the opportunity to appeal the case.
