An audit by the IRS sounds very stressful. And it can be.
An audit doesn’t always mean that there’s a problem with your individual or business tax return, but responding to a notice regarding an IRS audit appropriately is critical and crucial.
IRS audits are conducted either by mail or in person. Either way, they’re very document-intensive and can take up a lot of your time and energy. Some people find the audit process invasive, and many become frustrated with the process.
Legal representation by the experienced tax attorneys at Bailyn Law is a very good idea if you’re being audited by the IRS. For one thing, we’re familiar with the audit process – we know what to say to the auditors, what documents must be provided in a given situation (the fact that an IRS auditor asks you for a certain document does NOT mean that it is required!), and how to respond to the audit findings.
