Why you should consult a Tax Attorney for an IRS Audit
By Steven A. Leahy
There is very little that can strike fear in the heart like a notice from the IRS that you are about to be subject to an IRS audit.
A tax audit can make even the most honest person wonder how much trouble they are going to get into and what they should do to prepare.
Many people facing an audit choose to go it alone, but here are three ways that consulting a tax attorney can make it a little more bearable.
#1. You remove yourself from much of the process.
There is almost nothing more stressful than a tax audit, but if you hire a professional, they can handle the great majority of it for you.
#2. A tax attorney will know if your auditor is right or wrong.
Mistakes are often made in an audit because the tax code is so complex. A tax attorney will be able to spot these mistakes, possibly saving you thousands of dollars.
#3. A professional tax attorney can prepare a counter-attack.
An experienced tax attorney and their staff can go over old returns and find missed deductions and other errors that can be used to counter some of the things brought up in the audit.
