The fear of being audited is something that every person can experience. However, while it is undoubtedly a serious event, an audit is not something you have to go through alone.
You can work with a legal representative who has been through this complex process before and prove to be a critical resource in a few different ways.
An attorney can:
- Advise you of your options: Being audited can turn your world upside down. Between all the requests for information and the deadlines you are expected to meet, you can be unsure of what you need to be doing. An attorney can guide you through the process and help ensure you are doing what you need to be doing to protect yourself and your rights.
- Act on your behalf: Agents from the IRS can be intimidating, and any interaction with the federal government has the potential to be greatly stressful. You can feel like you are at a great disadvantage when it comes to dealing with these parties, but having your own representative can level the playing field and give you the peace of mind in knowing you have someone looking out for your best interests.
- Help you avoid costly mistakes: Without a background in and familiarity with tax laws and procedures, any person has the potential to make a mistake before or during an audit, knowingly or not.
