Tax audit representation, also called audit defense, is a service in which a tax or legal professional on behalf of a taxpayer, represents IRS or state income tax audit.
We as your representative develops the strategy used to defend your position. We assist the taxpayer in preparing all documents requested by the tax authority and typically attends all meetings and handles correspondence on behalf of the taxpayer.
If you receive an IRS audit notice or other IRS examination letter stating that your return has been selected for an examination, it is time to seek tax audit help from a tax professional. If you have already been through a tax audit, which resulted in additional taxes, penalties, and interest being assessed, you do have options besides paying the tax liabilities in full. These options include filing an appeal, audit reconsideration, and/or an offer in compromise.
Well, there’s no need to panic, but there are certain steps you should take.
