Most people don’t think of the taxes they filed years ago. That is until they receive notice that the IRS is auditing their past returns. Although an audit can be completely random, it can be stressful. However, with the right federal tax audit defense lawyer on your side, an audit does not have to be an intimidating process. Our attorneys at the law firm of Diosdi Ching & Liu, LLP will work to ensure your audit goes as smoothly as possible and will address any issues raised by IRS auditors.
Providing Representation Throughout the Audit Process
An IRS auditor will closely examine your tax returns and may request that you provide supporting documentation for the expenses and deductions that you claimed on your returns. This is because the IRS regularly suspects people of overstating expenses to wrongfully limit tax liability. The auditor may also investigate whether you underreported your income by examining your financial records. If the auditor determines you owe additional taxes – which is their goal – you will receive a tax bill with added interest and possible penalties.
It is important to understand that just because an auditor makes a determination does not mean it is the final decision. Too many filers fail to realize that they have the ability to contest an auditor’s findings during the audit process. Our attorneys can help with the following, among other issues:
- Challenge whether an expense or deduction should be disallowed
- Challenge the auditor’s estimation of income underreporting
- Challenge the auditor’s projection of possible errors across multiple years to increase tax liability
