IRS/State Tax Representation

There is nothing more alarming to a business owner and a management team than receiving an IRS audit letter. It can set off an almost immediate panic that either the company has done something wrong or there is additional money owed. While it’s rare that these worst fears are realized, an audit can be a tedious and complex process that most do not have the expertise, resources, or time to properly manage on their own. Oftentimes, an audit involves numerous requests for records, information, and other materials to substantiate various items reported on the corporate income tax return. This process is often draining, distracting, and leaves leadership unfocused on their task of managing the company.


For this reason, it’s important to understand that “going it alone” with the IRS is usually not the best approach. It’s often more effective to work with an accounting partner that can manage the process, address requests for documentation, carefully review IRS questions, formulate responses, and address other issues as needed. We have experience representing companies in IRS audits, compliance, and office and field examinations. We not only reduce the hassle of an audit, but we also understand how to respond to IRS inquiries in a way that puts you in the most optimal position possible.
