Very few things create concern in the hearts of people more than receiving an IRS Audit letter in the mail. Audits take significant time away from your business and family.
Many taxpayers who decide to handle a tax audit themselves, may unwittingly create a tax deficiency. IRS Auditors are trained to extract more information from you than you have a legal obligation to provide. Often, a casual conversation can lead to a finding. IRS Auditors know that most people fear them and are ignorant of their rights. For others, the IRS may use that fear and lack of knowledge of tax laws and your rights to their advantage.
The good news is that it is common for clients not to negotiate directly with the IRS or other auditor. Instead, you authorize us to handle the audit for you in our office -- and the auditors expect that of a tax preparer. This means you do not need to use time from your business or job to handle the bureaucracy and paperwork of the IRS. No lost wages or business. And, no innocent comments that could lead to more work, and perhaps more tax liability.
