What is a Tax Audit?
Essentially, a tax audit is an in-depth investigation conducted by the IRS. The IRS conducts audits to determine if individuals, businesses or other organizations are paying the correct amount of taxes. If an individual, business or other organization has neglected to pay in the correct amount in taxes, the IRS will perform an audit to determine if the negligence was a simple mistake or an attempt at tax evasion. In either case, the party in question will be audited.
What Happens in a Tax Audit?
During a tax audit, a team of accountants and fact finders will be tasked with going through all of your records to determine if you underpaid your taxes. These auditors will be looking for discrepancies between what you have paid and what you owe. A common area they will look at is tax write-offs. It is not uncommon for some write-offs to not qualify, thus resulting in additional taxes needing to be paid in to the IRS.
Because the auditors will be using tax code to assess your taxes, the assistance of an experienced tax lawyer will be beneficial. Your tax lawyer will be able to help you successfully navigate through the entire audit process. The tax lawyers at J.
