Audits or Exams
When the tax return has been selected for an exam or audit, the process can be overwhelming and frustrating. The auditor will try to intimidate the taxpayer and it seems they are trained to do that. A tax professional experienced in supporting an audit can be a valuable resource as you work through this process. The audits can be simple and be resolved with a letter with supporting documents or they can be an exam where everything on a return is audited. These exams can take some time and frequent meetings with the officer are usually required. After the exam is complete and the final report is issued, there are options available to address the final determination.
