If you’ve received notice of an upcoming IRS audit, you might automatically assume that you made a horrible mistake on your tax return. While it is possible that an error in calculation, classification, or filing caused the red flag that led to the audit, it’s also possible that your return was targeted at random—or even by mistake. Perhaps the tax authorities simply need you to submit an extra piece of paperwork or fill out an additional form. Or maybe you claimed a large number of charitable deductions or too many business expenses, and the government wants to follow up to ensure accuracy. Whatever the case, there’s no reason to panic.
One of my jobs when people come to Munoz & Company, CPA, seeking audit defense is to determine why their tax return was selected in the first place. Knowing what circumstances led to your IRS tax audit helps me prepare the best possible IRS audit representation. Whether you submitted the wrong tax forms, declared the wrong amount of income, or are one of those unlucky taxpayers who did nothing wrong but happen to fit the IRS audit profile, I’ll guide you through the proceedings with consideration, care, and skill.
