The IRS Examiner conducting an audit ( more than 1.7 million in 2010) generally knows more about the tax laws than you do. Therefore, going through an IRS audit by yourself, whether as an individual or business, puts you at a clear disadvantage. However, having an attorney represent you at an audit will maximize your protection from the IRS and most likely result in your case being closed out quickly, and save you thousands of dollars. We have represented individuals and businesses at IRS audits and know what it takes to obtain timely and cost-effective solutions.
