Are You Being Audited by the IRS?

Do not feel discouraged if you have received a letter or notice from the IRS and do not know what action you should take next. Depending on the situation, the response you will need to provide can be either very simple or extremely complex. Regardless of what the IRS asks for, we can help you interpret what they are asking so that you may respond adequately to the letter and put this behind you.

The IRS may send a letter to you in a number of different situations, including:

  • Your tax return may have a discrepancy that the IRS notices and requires an explanation for.

  • The amount paid is either below or above the amount calculated by the IRS or another tax agency

  • A payment deadline for taxes you owe has passed without you making the payment.

  • The deadline for filing tax returns has passed, and you have not filed them.

  • The previous correspondence they sent has not been responded to.

You should be aware that the IRS will never send you an email regarding any of the situations mentioned above. In every case, they send physical letters. In the event that you receive an email, it is most likely a scam. 

The response can be fairly simple to craft and send if it’s a discrepancy letter or balance due. Getting a tax professional to review or develop any response you need to send to the IRS is always a wise idea.

If you’re being audited, you must prepare for your meeting. The IRS officer has probably asked for certain records. A tax professional, like anyone from our team at Total Tax Resolution, can help you get ready and guide you on what you should be willing to provide to the IRS and what you shouldn’t. Suppose the IRS requests your QuickBooks file or online access, and there are several years of data in it. It is only advisable to provide the IRS officer with the pertinent year; otherwise, you will open yourself to more scrutiny.

It can be extremely nerve-racking to undergo an audit. An experienced tax professional can guide you through the entire process, easing your mind.
