Defend Your Tax Audit
Your Tax Audit Rights
What is a tax audit? A tax audit is when the IRS asks to see the records you used to prepare your tax return. A tax audit usually begins with a call or a letter from the IRS telling you that you are being audited. The tax audit proceeds with the IRS then sending out an Information Document Request, in which they list the various documents you used to prepare your tax return. For example, if you claimed a mortgage interest deduction the IRS might want to see the document from your mortgage company that proves how much you paid in interest. Or if you claimed an advertising expense on your Schedule C (business) then the IRS might want to review the receipts you have to make sure they add up to the amount you claimed on your return. An IRS tax audit can be very specific or it can be more general than this. Some times the tax audit help you need will be a need for professionals.
