How to Survive An IRS Tax Audit

Are you being audited?

A key element to know about IRS tax audits is that they are, most definitely, survivable. Many people fear them as they represent a great unknown or the taxpayer feels they have done something wrong when, in fact, they have not. IRS audits are one place where an aggressive Tampa IRS tax relief lawyer works hard to be of great service to you and your family.

If you have been notified of an audit or one is ongoing, you first action should be to call Attorney Brian Loughrin, who is fully prepared to perform all the work on your audit, from start to finish. Although an accountant or enrolled agent is able to represent you in an audit, they do not have the attorney-client privilege afforded to an attorney. This can make your tax information vulnerable if they are summoned by the IRS.

At times, an IRS examination will not require a personal appearance and can be resolved through the mail. If you are asked to appear and bring specified records, you can have your attorney appear for you. In this case, we are empowered to fully act on your behalf all the way through to signing the final agreement. With more than 15 years of experience in these matters, we know the rules of the audits game and how to win.

In any meetings with the IRS, we follow a strict policy of not volunteering any information that they have not requested. Additionally, our office will not provide any documentation that is not specifically required. We want you to be represented by someone who thoroughly understand the tax codes and knows how to answer, or not, questions from the IRS. Our office is here to represent you and your interests.
