Audit Representation & Examination

Audit Representation ExaminationAn audit is when the IRS or state analyzes the accuracy of your tax return. The IRS will determine if you reported all income and review proper documentation for your expenses. There are three types of audits: correspondence audit, office audit, and home/field audit.

A correspondence audit is the most common type and is done by mail. This type of audit often happens when there is a discrepancy with third party documentation. An office audit is at a specific time and date and requires the taxpayer to provide documentation for certain items on their tax return. The home/field audit is the most severe type of audit and generally involves high income business owners.

It is in the best interest of the taxpayer to consult with a tax professional to provide the IRS or state auditor proper support for expenses and say the right things. Having The Taxperts will significanly increase the chances of a favorable outcome and save you more money.
