IRS Audit Representation

It can be unnerving to receive an IRS or state audit letter in the mail. 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 leave no stone unturned in its mission to determine the accuracy of your tax return. Auditors are trained to extract more information from you than you have a legal obligation to provide and know that most people fear them and are ignorant of their rights.

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 prior to our first meeting with the auditor.

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 need not take time off from your business or job to handle the bureaucracy of the IRS.
