With the IRS being short on staff, we don’t see very many full-blown field audits anymore. However, the IRS is becoming very sophisticated and adept at using computers to identify possible issues with a given tax return.
Accordingly, it is not uncommon for a taxpayer to receive a letter from the IRS requesting additional information or documents.
We have helped many clients by taking the mystery out of these letters and pinpointing what the IRS wants and why they want it.
There is no additional charge for this service; it is covered in our low tax preparation fee. Additionally, our office is open all year long to assistance with these issues.
