Our staff assisted in the writing of the Revenue Agent procedures manual and audit classification procedures, so we know what sparks an audit and how to deal with an audit. Our staff has decades of experience in top positions in the IRS, such as the Appeals Division. Our staff also has many years of IRS experience as Agents, who audited both individuals and businesses. We know how the IRS thinks and how to best serve your interests.
No matter how simple the request for information may be, we never advise any taxpayer to represent themselves in an IRS audit. Even if you have been absolutely honest and filed everything correctly, meeting with the IRS can be an intimidating experience. The IRS auditor represents the IRS, and is looking to find errors on your return. Shouldn’t you have someone on your side to ensure that the IRS doesn’t take advantage of you?
IRS Agent and Auditors are trained investigators. Although they may appear friendly during the audit, don’t forget that their job is to find mistakes on your tax return and perhaps find unreported income. If an Agent or Auditor discovers that you failed to report a significant amount of your income on several years of tax returns, did you know that you could be faced with criminal prosecution?
Handling the audit on your own is a big mistake! For instance, do you know the “trick questions” an Agent or Auditor might ask you during the initial interview?
We highly recommend that you hire a tax professional to represent you before the IRS. When you hire us, you can be comforted by knowing that our up-to-date IRS experience will be used to protect you. You can face an audit with confidence when JG Associates is on your side!
