Accomplished legal advisor guides clients in income tax audits
There are three types of IRS audits that vary in severity:
- A correspondence audit — Correspondence audits are usually done because of minor mistakes on tax forms. They typically require taxpayers filling out and mailing back paperwork to the IRS that explains and corrects the mistakes.
- An office audit — Office audits take place at IRS offices with IRS examiners. Taxpayers are typically asked to bring documentation with them, such as receipts and other information that shows why they took various tax deductions.
- A field audit — Field audits are similar to office audits except that they take place at the homes or businesses of taxpayers. Frequently these audits can be held at the office of the taxpayer’s attorney or accountant.
If you are audited, you need to know your legal rights and what to expect. I will be with you during your audit and ensure your rights are respected.
Skillful law firm works hard toward resolving tax problems
If you are delinquent in filing your taxes, you may be subject to different types of debt collection attempts. These include having levies or liens filed against you or your business. Levies may be brought against your wages and other compensation from your employer. They may be brought against your bank accounts and assets held by third parties, such as insurance proceeds. Liens for unpaid tax debts can be placed on real estate and other personal property. I can help you through your audit and removing any levy or liens and can show you how to appeal any adverse tax decisions.
