IRS audits are one of the most dreaded events in the life of any taxpayer, especially if the taxpayer is a self-employed professional or the owner of a small business. Nevertheless, a taxpayer can successfully navigate through an audit, provided that he does not panic AND intelligently addresses the issues raised by IRS. Nobody should go into an audit alone.
Professional will determine the scope of the audit. Most audits seek information ONLY regarding a limited number of issues. Some audits are done by responding in writing to an IRS letter (the so-called correspondence audit). Other audits are face-to-face. Weinberg Law Firm, P.A., schedules face-to-face audits either at the IRS, at the accountant’s office, or at his law office, NEVER in the taxpayer’s home or office. Moreover, our clients sit back and watch us earn our money responding to the IRS auditor. Our clients generally do not speak.
Audit defense is about preparation. This office reviews all relevant records, advises clients if additional documentation is needed, assists in obtaining such documents and generally ensures that the client goes into the audit “ready to rumble”.
