Help with Tax Audit

An IRS audit can be a very frightening and stressful situation.

The Tax Experts at Tax Pros Plus, never advise any taxpayer to represent themselves in an IRS audit, no matter how simple it may seem. Even if you honestly believe you filled your entire tax return out correctly, meeting with the IRS can be a very intimidating experience and more so if you have to experience a face-to-face audit.

Traditionally, however, the majority of IRS audits are done via correspondence. In other words, most IRS audits are in the form of letters asking for explanations of various tax items on a tax return or requesting supporting documentation. The fact of the matter is that on average only about one-third of all IRS audits are done on a fact-to-face basis with a revenue agent, tax compliance officer, or tax examiner.

More often than not, an IRS audit of a tax return will result in changes to the return. Whether these changes are good or bad for the taxpayer depends on the situation. As for the likelihood of your tax return being audited, just keep this in mind that only around one percent of all individual returns filed actually received an IRS audit.

But what if you happen to be in that unlucky one percent? We advise that you hire a professional to represent you.
