Common Questions

What is tax audit defense?

When you are contacted by the IRS or state taxing agency, our expert IRS income tax audit representatives will defend any income tax return for which you’ve purchased a membership at no additional charge.

In the event of an audit, TaxAudit.com will:

  • Defend your income tax return through the highest level of appeals.
  • Review your documentation before the IRS sees it.
  • Schedule and attend all audit appointments on your behalf. Prepare requests for appeals conferences.
  • If necessary, prepare a U.S. Tax Court Petition.
  • Minimize the financial impact of an audit.

Memberships must be purchased before the IRS or state taxing agency sends you a notice. If the date on the notice of audit from the IRS or State is prior to the acceptance date of your membership, audit defense services for that audit are excluded.

With a TaxAudit.com membership, you can rest easy knowing IRS audit assistance is only a phone call away

Common Questions

I don't have a membership, can I still get IRS tax audit help?

Yes, we offer IRS tax audit help for those who do not have audit protection coverage. Just provide us the IRS income tax audit letter you’ve received along with your tax return documents. We will provide you a professional evaluation of your situation including a full analysis of documents, planning for resolution, and if recommended, a quote for expert IRS audit defense.

At just $75.00, you won’t find better tax notice and tax return evaluation.

Common Questions

How much does your IRS audit defense service cost?

If the tax return being audited is covered under your audit protection membership plan, the audit defense service doesn’t cost you anything.

If you don’t have audit protection, don’t worry. We can provide a professional evaluation of your IRS tax audit notice and tax return, and recommend a strategy for only $75. The evaluation service includes a one-time, 30 minute phone consultation with a tax professional. Our evaluation also includes a flat fee quote for full service representation by a tax professional. Basic representation is as low as $275, with more complicated cases ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 and up.

Common Questions

How many people get audited?

This is not an easy question to answer because the odds of being audited really depend on your income level and your overall tax situation. While the IRS does publish statistics on audit rates by income level, there is no data available on audit rates for taxpayers whose returns include major audit targets, such as multiple years of Schedule C self-employment business losses or high employee business expenses in relation to income. While your income may put you in a low risk category based on the statistics, your tax return may in fact have an extremely high likelihood of being audited, especially if it contains entries that coincide with one or more of the Agency’s “special projects.” In addition, the computer-generated letters and “soft notices” the IRS sends to millions of taxpayers every year are not counted in their “audit” statistics.

TaxAudit.com offers IRS tax audit help for IRS audits and “soft notices.” When you are contacted by the IRS or state taxing agency, our expert representatives will defend any income tax return for which you’ve purchased an audit protection membership at no additional charge.

Common Questions

What triggers an IRS audit?

Every entry or lack of entry on every line of every form of a tax return can cause an IRS income tax audit to be triggered. IRS audit triggers range from filing status and dependent issues to moving expenses and mortgage interest.

With an audit protection membership from TaxAudit.com, you can stop worrying about an audit being triggered. If it is, our experienced audit specialists will be standing by to deal with whatever the IRS sends your way.

Common Questions

My tax situation is complicated and I need a representative with experience. Wouldn’t I be better off using a tax lawyer?

A tax lawyer will typically charge thousands of dollars to defend you in an audit. Why pay that much when we have you covered? Our expert audit representatives include CPAs, EAs, and tax lawyers that typically handle more audits in one month than most tax preparers or lawyers handle in a lifetime. Our team of expert defenders have the experience needed to handle any audit situation.
