What is a Tax Audit?
What does it mean to be audited by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)? A tax audit is a review of a company’s or individuals’ tax returns and financial information. The first thing you should know is that an audit is not necessarily an indicator of a suspected problem. One way that the IRS selects returns for audits is by using software to compare the information submitted by individuals or organizations in order to identify anomalies.
Another means of selection is due to related audits. The IRS may decide to audit taxpayers based on their interactions and transactions with a taxpayer that is already being audited.
What to do if You Received an Audit Notice?
If you receive notice of an audit, CPA Accounting and Tax Services would like to be of service. You have the right, by law, to representation. A licensed Certified Public Accountant has equal standing as an Attorney in matters of tax audits, payment/collection issues, and appeals. We are experienced in working with the IRS and can help you prepare for the audit.
Call Our Orlando Office at (407) 382-6658 to Schedule Your Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation, we will get to know you and your financial situation. You should have some documents with you, such as the audit letter you received, pertinent years’ receipts, ledgers, etc. 1099s and W2s are also needed. If you have a business or are self-employed, bring business documents as well. As CPAs, we are experts in tax law and will analyze your financial, business, and tax documents so that potential issues can be identified in advance. We will then thoroughly explain the audit process and answer any questions you have. The result of the meeting will entail a recommended course of action.
Do You Need to be Present for Your Audit?
Typically, our clients do not even have to meet with the IRS. In most cases, we can handle all communications and appearances with them on your behalf. In fact, we usually advise clients in this situation to cease all communications with the IRS immediately and put them in touch with us. This can be an arduous and convoluted process, where the IRS aims to uncover as many problems as they can. Clients can inadvertently say something that can lead to additional inquiries and open up additional years to the audit. We know what to say and what not to say, to steer clear of these situations.
An IRS Audit is a Process
When facing an audit, it is important to understand the time the process takes. It usually takes months to resolve an audit, which often requires numerous back-and-forth communications. We can manage all of that for you, with input from you at various points in the process.
