Tax Audit Attorney
Specifically, how should the taxpayer prepare for an audit when that letter comes? These tips will point you in the right direction:
- Retain the services of a tax audit lawyer. Enrolled agents, tax attorneys or CPAs may represent you at an audit. They are trained in IRS procedure and can represent you much better than you can represent yourself. To a non-lawyer, however, reading the tax code is like reading a foreign language. If you want the best, get the very best the United States has to offer: the tax audit attorney. After all, your case is about law, not accounting.
- Second, let us do you talking for you. We are tax lawyers with a lot more years of defending tax audits than you. We will appear at the interview for you. We will appear at the audit and you will not even be there. In our law firm all IRS discussion goes through a tax attorney. You can rest safe in the knowledge that your legal work won’t be passed off to an EA or CPA, that you will be represented by a lawyer. What’s even better, it costs no more.
- Keep good records. Believe it or not, maintaining good tax records is more than just getting things in order a month before April 15 and running out and buying TurboTax. You must learn to keep in proper file folders in a proper filing system the proof of what you put on your tax return. So you keep bank statements and deposit slips. You keep your checks and attach them to the invoices they paid. You keep your credit card list of purchases. Then, if you’re called in for an audit, you’re prepared. The “proof records” you keep are important, producible evidence of what you put on your tax return. TurboTax is a good program, but without the supporting evidence it alone is inadequate to get you through an IRS tax audit. Keep your backup information for three tax years because the IRS audits can go back three tax years.
- If you’re caught without records, here’s what we help you do. Think back to that year. Remember bank accounts and credit cards. List your major purchases. Go to your pharmacy and get a copy of all drugs purchased and the price you paid for that tax year. Get bank records (yes, they’ll cost a little, but far less than an audit has the potential to cost you). If you’ve claimed expenses like medical expenses, it’s possible that your doctor or hospital will still have those medical records on file. Don’t hesitate to call them. You can also call your employer and ask for duplicate W-2s or 1099 forms; or check with your mortgage company for interest expenses for that year; or with your county for personal property taxes paid. Now we will put it all into order for you, in the format the IRS requires. Our document staff will then get the records to the IRS for you or I will take the records to the audit for you.
- Do your homework. Our website has tremendously useful tools in the form of articles that you can easily browse and read. You’ll be amazed how much you can learn about automobile deductions just by reading one article. Home office? Read the publication about home offices. Do your investigation and there’s no reason why you cannot know as much about the rules in your case as the auditor knows.
- When we attend the interview, we’re going in as your hired cash guard. We will volunteer no information beyond what is asked. We will take along no more documents than what the IRS has requested. If you decide to go it alone (which we do NOT recommend!) remember that your demeanor means everything. Be professional. Try not to argue or insist. Don’t ridicule and above all, don’t belittle. Be on time, have your documents organized and copied, and take the audit seriously.
- About the roles in your audit case. First and always remember the auditor is not on your side. He or she may seem to be on your side, or at least pulling for you, but they are not. They are pulling for their employer – the IRS – and they are pulling for their own job performance. Second, you are guilty until and unless you can prove your innocence. You have probably lied or made things up or why else would you be here in the first place? That’s their attitude. Again, we will appear for you and we will calmly and politely answer questions but we will never ever volunteer information on the notion that it may help. It won’t help. The IRS is schooled in letting long pauses develop during which they expect the lay person to blurt out information. We won’t do that because are tax lawyers and know better.
When we at Ellsworth Law Group defend an audit we consider it a win when we have proven the tax return was accurate and complete as filed. No additional tax due is a win. When we prove extra items in our client’s favor and get money back, that’s an even better result. We’re serious. There are many audits that prove the IRS actually owes you instead of the other way around. So how is all this done? In three words: records, records, records. Seriously consider hiring a tax lawyer to make sure you have everything in the best possible posture for presentation. We can help produce documentation where you often just don’t know what to do. Our services, and what you pay for our services, will pay off in the long run. Play to win. Know the rules. Document everything. Give us a call and we’ll help you get started today. Nothing makes the fear go away faster than good old-fashioned preparation.Contact attorney John Ellsworth as soon as you are notified of an impending tax audit.
