An IRS or state audit can be a very intimidating experience. Audits require you to gather all your records and substantiate the financial information reported on your tax returns and subject you to potentially invasive scrutiny.
With federal and state government deficits soaring, the IRS and state tax authorities are very aggressive in determining the accuracy of your tax return. Auditors are trained to extract more information from you than you have a legal obligation to provide knowing that most people do not know their full rights and can be intimidated.
Using our firm as your IRS representative will make the process substantially less overwhelming as we have a complete understanding of IRS procedures and the entire audit process.
We will anticipate what the IRS or state agency will exam during your audit and we will develop a comprehensive strategy to increase the odds of you getting a better outcome on your audit. An audit is like a game, if you are not aware of the strategies, it is best to have a professional on your side to help.
In most cases, you are not required, nor is it encouraged for you to attend the audit. Rarely do our clients even have to talk to the IRS. We handle it all for you so that you don’t need to take time off from your business or job to handle the bureaucracy of the IRS.
Having a tax professional represent you before the IRS can be a great decision and can actually end up saving you money.
