Were You Selected for an IRS Audit?
Secure Representation from a Santa Clarita Tax Lawyer
An IRS audit is a review of your financial accounts to verify the accuracy of your reported tax information. Many times, individuals are selected for an IRS audit completely by random. In other cases, audits occur because the government noticed mismatching documents or erroneous tax returns. If you were recently selected, there is no need to panic. You have rights as a taxpayer and ourSanta Clarita tax attorney can ensure that these rights remain intact throughout the audit process. We apply over a decade of knowledge to each case and always take time to address our clients’ concerns.
Call (888) 256-8581 to obtain legal representation during your audit.
Understanding the Audit Process
The length of an audit depends on numerous factors, including the type of audit, the complexity of the items being reviewed, and your response to the government’s findings. From the examination to the refund process, you have rights which must be respected by the IRS.
Your rights include all of the following:
- A right to professional and respectful treatment by IRS employees
- A right to confidentiality about your tax matters
- A right to know the reasoning behind the audit and how the information will be used
- A right to personal representation
- A right to appeal disagreements
When it’s all said and done, an audit can be settled in three different ways – no change necessary, agreement from the taxpayer with the propose changes, or disagreement from the taxpayer with the proposed findings. If you disagree, you do have the chance to file an appeal.
While IRS audits can be intimidating, being chosen does not automatically mean that you are in the wrong. The best way to ensure a favorable outcome is by securing legal assistance at the very onset of your case. At RJB Law Offices, we are ready to begin representing you the moment you call.
