Our practice focuses on, in addition to tax preparations, IRS representation of taxpayer before the IRS concerning collection matters.  We do tax planning either on event driven bases or comprehensively.  More than a few taxpayers who petition the United States Tax Court to settle their dispute with the IRS choose to represent themselves before the court rather than engage an attorney.  We assist these taxpayers through income tax research and other guidance.


What is an audit reconsideration ?


Many times after an audit has been completed, the taxpayer discovers that the audit results were inaccurate.  These discoveries are common in the case of a so-called correspondence audit.  Office and field audits are generally accurate, but, errors are committed in these audits also.


There are three main types of IRS audits: a correspondence audit, an office audit and a field audit.  The correspondence audit involves a letter from the IRS requesting additional information about a particular part of the taxpayer's tax return.  An Office audit involves meeting with the IRS agent at the IRS office.  During a field audit, an IRS agent may visit a home or business to examine financial information.


An audit reconsideration exam gives the taxpayer another chance to arrive at the correct tax liability.
