IRS Tax Audit Help
The Internal Revenue Service and/or your State Department of Taxation can within their rights choose to review your income tax return for accuracy if it believes some or all of your tax return is incorrect. This review process is generally referred to as a tax audit. Although many people fear the tax audit, it does not necessarily mean you have broken any tax laws. It also does not mean your return is definitely incorrect. It may mean you need audit representation from an MA tax firm with experience managing the IRS, State & City authorities.
However, it is important to note you are not alone, oftentimes, an individual that has been subject to an audit immediately assumes that they will need an attorney or that they are in legal trouble. This is not always the case – in fact, many times a CPA like our team at Aleks Tax and more, is a great first choice for an audit representation. In addition, a CPA is more reasonably priced than a tax attorney office. If you find yourself on the receiving end of an IRS, State, or MA tax audit, the AM accountants at Alek Tax & More can thoroughly analyze and defend your case, giving you the peace of mind you need to navigate the review process.
How Returns Are Chosen
An accountant’s main role is to ensure that the deductions and claims are always correct. Large, unusual, and suspicious items reported on a tax return increase the odds that the IRS will choose to analyze your return. If the IRS suspects that you or your return preparer made mistakes on your return, it may choose to perform an audit. In general, the IRS searches for extra revenue that it was projected to receive. The IRS does this by seeking individuals who underreport or fail to report – or who inflate deductions to reduce total tax owed. If the IRS flagged your return, these are the two most likely explanations on why you have been chosen for an audit.
What to Bring to Your Initial Consultation
When you meet with Alek Tax & More for your initial consultation, you will need to bring all documents including the taxes in question that pertain to your IRS case. These include the notice or notices sent by the IRS, an accurate and complete copy of the return you submitted, and any supporting documentation to prove your information was correct.
These supporting documents can include:
- expense receipts
- mortgage interest and property tax statements
- documents pertaining to your business if you are self-employed
- foreign income information
- any other important tax documents that are relevant to the year being audited.
It is important to share all information during this 100% confidential period with our team pertaining to the audited year in order to achieve the most favorable result. It is much better to hire an accountant to defend your case early in the audit process rather than wait until the IRS threatens to levy or collect on the tax debt it thinks you owe. You have rights during the tax audit process, and many taxpayers answer questions during IRS hearings they are not legally required to answer in certain circumstances.
What to Expect During the Audit Process
At Alek Tax & More, our tax accountants will take the time to understand your financial background and story. We will thoroughly explain the entire audit process to you and your rights. Following our in depth analysis, we will together identify probable outcomes and recommend a strategy. If you get additional notices from the IRS during this process, it is very important to share those IRS notices with Alek Tax & More immediately. Many notices you will be receiving during the process will highlight important deadlines, dates, and instructions.
If you are worried about meeting an IRS officer face-to-face, you are not alone. This is very common by many of the people that we represent. The accountants and professional team at Alek Tax & More can handle the meetings for you. In fact, we highly recommend that you cease contact with the IRS and allow the Alek tax and More team to defend your case for you. However, do not expect the audit to resolve itself in a few weeks – dealing with certain departments of the federal, state and local governments usually takes at least a couple months.
