Times like these require the services of a professional that can properly handle all aspects of your tax file. The are many benefits to having a tax attorney on your side and it can dramatically increase your chances of success. Many taxpayers feel helpless when it comes to an IRS audit. They often make rash decisions which can involve deciding to forgo hiring a lawyer or reluctantly paying what the IRS has decided their adjusted tax liability should be.

mistakes and additional tax liabilities. These methods do not provide you with the assistance you need when the IRS decides to conduct an audit. An attorney can also advise you of tax advantages that you are not currently taking advantage of with your personal or business planning. You may find that you are not claiming all of the tax deductions that you deserve. With a full-blown audit an IRS agent will likely come to your home or business to comb through your records looking for inconsistencies. Without the advice and counsel of a tax attorney you would be leaving yourself open to being pressed by an agent to admit things that are not true and to incriminate yourself. A lawyer is your best ally against an IRS agent and their intrusive techniques. Another major point to consider is attorney-client privilege. When you hire an attorney to handle an audit your affairs are kept in the strictest of confidences. You can rest assured knowing that you can provide your attorney with all the information that they need to properly defend your case. If you have received a letter from the IRS stating that they are going to conduct an audit of your tax return then you should contact a tax attorney in your area that has the knowledge and skills necessary to correctly fight your case. Defending a tax issue with a federal agency should only be left to a professional.
