IRS Audit Representation for Seattle, WA Taxpayers
IRS audit representation is the solution for those who have received an IRS audit letter. If you have received an IRS audit letter, we're sure that your first reaction was fear and dread. In 2011 and 2012, the IRS hired thousands of agents and is seeking more than $1 billion in funding to hire up to 4,000 more agents to collect over $1.5 billion in tax revenue. So, enforcement activity of all kinds, including IRS audits, will be increasing. And, lots of people are experiencing the misfortune of receiving an IRS audit letter.
First, a word about IRS audits. All audits are not the same. Most IRS audits take the form of what’s called a correspondence audit. In this type of audit, you don’t meet with IRS agents, but rather provide them with them information by mail. Still, the problem could be compounded depending on what you send and how you respond, so even in the case of a correspondence audit, it is best not to try to resolve your IRS tax problem on your own, but rather to seek IRS audit representation. Further, if you have IRS audit representation, it sends a message to the IRS that you’re serious about resolving your tax issue – whether you are right or the IRS is right about your tax return – in a professional way. Obviously, in the case of more intrusive field audits at your home or office, you absolutely need IRS audit representation by a tax attorney or CPA with experience in resolving IRS audits.
Remember, the IRS is not always right and sometimes people get picked by a random selection method, so once you get past the fear of having received an IRS audit letter, it’s essential for you to speak with one of our tax attorneys who specialize in IRS audit representation.
