IRS Audit Representation

We know that it is very disconcerting when an IRS Audit letter arrives in the mail. Audits can take significant time away from your business and family, requiring you to gather significant records to substantiate each and every item reported on your tax return and develop a comprehensive understanding of tax law.

The IRS is very thorough in pursuing its mission to determine the accuracy of your tax return. If you don't comply with the Auditors' wishes, the IRS will recalculate your tax and present you with a tax bill which is likely to include substantial penalty and interest charges.

Many taxpayers decide to handle a tax audit themselves, and discover they may have been "penny wise," avoiding a representative's fee, but "pound foolish," because they received a substantial bill for a significant tax deficiency. IRS Auditors are trained to gather more information from you than you have a legal obligation to provide. IRS Auditors know that most people fear them and are unaware of their rights. As a result, they know they can use that fear and ignorance to their advantage.

Rarely do our clients even have to talk with the IRS. We handle it all for you so that you needn’t take time off from your business or job to handle the bureaucracy and paperwork of the IRS. There is no need to experience lost wages or business; you simply forward notification of an audit to us and we handle it from beginning to end.
