Even with recent changes in IRS staffing, the chance of an audit still remains. Your best line of defense in an audit is good recordkeeping. Be prepared for an audit by making sure you keep all of the supporting documentation for your deductions with your tax return copies. If you would like to see the IRS audit statistics for recent years, you can find them at www.irs.gov/uac/Tax-Stats-2.
If you receive an IRS or State tax notice, review the notice for accuracy. If you are not sure it's accurate, or if they've changed your tax liability or refund, you may consider having us review the notice. Please note there may be additional charges for this service, depending on the situation. You should still provide our office with a copy of the notice, even if you do not need our review services, since it may affect your tax return in the following year. Please remember that the IRS does NOT send emails or call you by telephone. Their primary mode of communication is U.S. Mail.
