When you are enduring an IRS Audit you must 1st discover the notice or letter number for all correspondence you have received from the IRS in order to know what process is applicable to your case and what procedures you must follow. Each of these procedures has time limits and qualifications so you must remain diligent to effectively present your case.
The basic procedures outlined in Issue-ID on the main TaxHelp website will address the most common IRS procedures: Collections, Audit, Return Errors, Return Requests and General Letters. The IRS also sends the same type of letters for Businesses.
But, the more detailed Audit Notices page offers more specific instructions for self-help in an IRS audit.
The least expensive, most effective way to resolve any tax case is to self-prepare your evidence & then hire an attorney to advocate for you with the IRS.
For each of these audit issues TaxHelp has designed a webpage to teach you the basic rules and procedures for each type of letter or notice. But, to get more specific, you need to come in for a consultation with our Tax Attorney so we can prepare a detailed Action Plan designed to win the case!
Do not get discouraged when reviewing these IRS letters. They are often very confusing and confrontational. But, if you get familiar with the IRS procedure you will understand the purpose of each letter and how to properly respond. You can go onto the Issues-ID page to get information about any letter you receive from the IRS.
For some letters, you can deduce what is needed and respond. But, for many letters, it is best to follow the guidance of the TaxHelp Website. Bring in the documents requested so we may construct an Action Plan for you to resolve this IRS problem for the least cost.
