Audit Defense

“Your return has been selected for review….”

Those words can make anyone nervous, and ruin a perfectly good day. But understand that there may be any number of reasons for your audit. Reasons a return is selected for an audit include:

  1. Unreported income;
  2. Deductions outside the ‘normal’ range for the income bracket (for example, deducting 60% of your income as charitable contributions);
  3. Deductions in areas known to be ripe for abuse;
  4. Unusually large losses or gains;
  5. To assist the IRS in future audits;
  6. To investigate claims made on Form 8275;
  7. Random selection (yes, it exists!)

Whatever the reason, I am here to help take the stress off of you, provide you with a strong defense and zealously represent your interests. If you’ve been contacted by the IRS, Franchise Tax Board, Board of Equalization, Employment Development Department, Illinois Department of Revenue, Illinois Department of Employment Security, Los Angeles County, or any other tax body, give me a call. The sooner you call, the sooner we can start working on a solution.
