Auditors know that they are intimidating and employ this to extract additional information from overly honest tax filers. The mentality that some individuals have when choosing to represent themselves is, “I have nothing to hide”. That might be true, but you’ve also made yourself an easy target that can easily get overwhelmed with complex tax codes and jargon; accidentally using improper terminology that can then be used against you. When working with an examiner there is a conflict of interest. Their job is to send you a tax bill, even if it means just covering the expense on their side for the audit.
That’s why we recommend professional audit representation
has represented hundreds of audits over the years. Rarely do our clients even have to talk with the IRS. We understand the requirements of a federal or state tax audit, no matter what your unique situation may be. We will organize the process and tell you exactly what documentation and other data are needed. We work with you and provide options when problems arise, making sure you are allowed your maximum rights as a taxpayer. Some cases we have represented have actually received a tax refund after their audit was completed. How great is that!?
