Complex IRS Audits

by Bruce Givner on September 29, 2011

There could be a new round of complex IRS audits. On September 15th an agency official said the Internal Revenue Service’s examination team will focus on individuals whose tax liability is greatly reduced by using multiple flow through entities. IRS lawyers warned, that they will target individuals with substantial incomes and wealth, as well as individuals with lower incomes but high net worth’s. These complex IRS audits will include individuals with incomes of $250,000 and real income of at least $1,000,000. The Internal Revenue Service will also pursue individuals with multiple years of non-filing.

If you are in the middle of a difficult IRS audit, you need to know when it’s time to call an IRS Lawyer and get audit representation. We will discus this in a blog later this week.

A Few Tips For Dealing With a Complex IRS Audit

  • When dealing with an IRS audit or an Internal Revenue Service agent, timeliness, cooperation and accuracy are paramount.
  • If you or your CPA have questions as far as how to handle or respond to an Internal Revenue Service notice, call an IRS lawyer and get audit representation.
  • For the examination agent to conduct a successful IRS audit, they must fully understand the business and/or individual’s tax return.
  • When dealing with a difficult examination agent or simply a difficult IRS audit, remember remain civil and speak to a manager or call an IRS Lawyer and get audit representation.

So how exactly do I know if my CPA is on top of my audit? Should my CPA handle my IRS audit or should a tax attorney?
