Assuming you are here because you received a notice of audit, you are probably concerned at what lies ahead…to say the least.
Representing yourself in an audit makes as much sense as a doctor performing an operation on themselves; and, sometimes the complexity of an audit goes beyond the scope of work your tax preparer is able to handle.
In addition to knowing tax law, it is important to know what the IRS is and is not looking for in their investigation. Some audits stem from a “red flag” having been raised and others are chosen to occur at random. It is important for the person representing you in an audit to know which applies to you.
If your audit is “routine” based solely upon the luck of the draw, compiling and submitting supporting documents and arguing your position may be a relatively simple task. If on the other hand, you need to defend a more serious concern, you want to ensure you have the right person in your corner.
