Tax audits are one of the most stressful experiences a person can face. When the IRS flags your tax return for further examination, it often requires the production of documents to prove deductions or to answer questions the IRS may have. A Tennessee Tax Audit Attorney can help you through this complicated matter and make sure that you have experienced representation to help with your audit.
There are actually three different types of audits:
- Correspondence Audit – done entirely by mail, the IRS may want further proof of certain deductions or purchases;
- Office Audit – here, a filer will go to their local IRS field office for an interview;
- Field Audit – this is where an IRS official will come to your home or business to conduct their audit.
A Tennessee Tax Audit Attorney can help you assemble the documents you need and explain exactly what the IRS is looking for. This way, you can answer their questions and potentially avoid the steep penalties that can result from an audit. A lawyer will work to achieve the best outcomes possible for your particular audit and potentially help with any appeals once the audit is completed.
