IRS Audit Representation
Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of people ore than receiving an IRS Audit letter in the mail. Audits take significant time away from your business and family, requiring you to gather mounds of records substantiating each and every item reported on your tax return and develop a comprehensive understanding of tax law.
Many taxpayers decide to handle a tax audit themselves, and may have been “penny wise,”avoiding a representative’s fee, but “pound foolish”, because they received a substantial bill for a significant tax deficiency.
You see, IRS auditors are trained to extract more information from you than you have a legal obligation to provide. IRS auditors know that most people fear them and are ignorant of their rights. As a result, they know they can use that fear and ignorance to their advantage.
Rarely do our clients even have to talk with the IRS. We handle it all for you so that you need not take time off of your business or job to handle the bureaucracy and paperwork of the IRS. No lost wages or business. You simply forward notification of an audit to us and we handle it from start to finish.
If you’ve received an audit notice from the IRS, please call us at 405-946-8500 to speak to a certified public accountant.
Non-Filed Tax Returns
If you delinquent in your tax filings, know that the IRS will find you out sooner than later.
Failing to file your tax return is a criminal offense. If you do not file, you can be prosecuted and punished with potential jail time, one year for each year not filed. Why risk potentially losing your freedom for failing to file your tax returns.
If you voluntarily file your delinquent returns you’ll likely avoid further problems other than having to pay the interest and penalties. But if you wait for the IRS to file your returns, they are filed in the best interest of the government, usually with little or none of the deductions you are entitled to.
Let us help you get out of this predicament by filing the delinquent taxes and working on a course of action to help you get back on track.
Offer in Compromise
Did you know that you can settle your debt with the IRS for just pennies on the dollar with their Offer in Compromise program? The program allows taxpayers to settle with the IRS on tax debt that has been incorrectly assessed or for liabilities they cannot afford to pay.
The IRS Code states:”We will accept an Offer in Compromise when it is unlikely that we can collect the full amount owed and the amount you offer reasonable reflects the collection potential…”(Internal Revenue Code section 7122)
If done correctly your debt may be settled for a fraction of what you owe. The key is to determine the least amount that the IRS will accept from you before you make the offer.
