Audits can be scary! But, you do have rights. Know them. Protect yourself. Call us!
Have you been notified by the IRS that it will be auditing your tax returns? Are you unsure of where to begin or what to do?
The first thing an audited taxpayer should do is – get help! Most taxpayers don’t know that they have certain rights in an audit. They don’t know how to exercise those rights, and they don’t know how to protect themselves from having hundreds or even thousands of dollars added to their IRS tax debt.
Audits most often begin by the IRS asking for information and documents to support filed tax forms. It is important to give the information in a well-organized package, and with proper explanation.
Once the audit is completed the IRS gives the taxpayer an outline of its findings and the proposed results – usually, more tax due. At that time the taxpayer can contest the findings and results through various means, including filing a tax court petition.
Know your rights, get IRS audit help and be prepared! These three simple things could save you tons of money and lots of headaches.
