We strongly recommend hiring an experienced CPA to level the playing field. When working without proper representation, you are unfairly matched. The IRS auditor or examiner will have a detailed understanding of tax law.
Most taxpayers don’t know where to start. Although it can be overwhelming and emotionally draining, this isn’t something you should avoid. Few who are audited know what to disclose, how to disclose, or how to share supporting documentation.
Rightfully so, many taxpayers are primarily concerned with avoiding aggressive questioning by an auditor. With proper representation, you could end up owing large sums of money to the IRS.
