IRS Tax Audits
IRS audits are conducted to ensure the appropriate amount of revenue is received by the government and to increase tax compliance. To do this, they calculate taxpayer’s deductions in accordance with their income levels. If your deductions vary greatly from the IRS’ computations, the chance of them citing an error on your return is likely. However, in many cases, tax laws are subjective, meaning they are open to interpretation.
Tax Audit Representation
Tax audit representation—also known as audit defense—is a type of tax debt resolution service. When you seek tax audit representation, a skilled legal or tax professional will represent you before the IRS during the audit process. The IRS allows CPAs, attorneys, and enrolled agents to represent taxpayers during income audits.
Audit representatives are skilled with the strategies and tax knowledge necessary to defend you during an audit. They will assist you in key actions such as gathering and preparing all the documents requested by the IRS. Additionally, they will handle all correspondence with your IRS agent and attend meetings on your behalf.
