There is really not much worse mail you can get
besides an IRS Audit Letter. You know the letter that says “Come
on down to see us or we’ll be out to see you. Oh, and by the
way, bring in every piece of paper you have for the last
The time away from your job and family is considerable
when dealing with an IRS audit. The worst part is that if you don’t
comply, the cost of any changes by the auditor can be more than
your annual income with all the penalties and interest. We don’t
suggest that any individual or business meet with the IRS directly
in connection with an audit. The IRS auditors are trained to get
more information out of you than you have to provide. They audit
people and businesses all day long, everyday! How are you supposed
The first thing we recommend is that you don’t
speak or meet with the auditor. Have us handle all correspondence
and meetings with the IRS. This puts the IRS on notice that you
are serious about winning your audit. The preparation before the
audit appointment is extremely important.
The Buchwald Tax Firm handles IRS audits by actually
performing an audit of your records in our office before the scheduled
audit date. This way we uncover any areas where your documentation
is not adequate before the IRS auditor looks at your records.
IRS audits usually start with one year and then expand to other
years as the auditor makes changes. Your goal must be “to
stop the auditors in their tracks on the first year being audited
in order to prevent any additional changes in other years.”
Our firm meets with the IRS auditor in either their office or our
office, but not in your home or office. Our methods allow you to
continue on with your business and personal life and let us deal
directly with the IRS.
Us to end the Worry and Stress of Your IRS Problems.
