Common Questions

I have an Audit Defense Membership. If I receive a notice from the IRS, is there a deductible I need to pay before I get help?

No, our Audit Defense Memberships do not have a deductible. When you are contacted by the IRS or state taxing agency, our expert tax audit defense professionals will help you with any income tax return for which you’ve purchased a membership at no additional charge.

As with all of our tax audit services, there are no hidden fees. When your tax return is covered by an Audit Defense Membership, you will never have to face the IRS alone.

Common Questions

What is audit protection?

Tax audit defense (commonly called tax audit protection) provides tax audit representation services when you are contacted by the IRS or state taxing agency. Our expert audit defense representatives will defend any tax return for which you’ve purchased your tax audit protection at no additional charge.

With TaxAudit.com’s tax audit protection services, you can rest easy knowing you will never have to face the IRS or state taxing authority alone.

To learn more about audit protection, check our FAQs or review the detailed information about our tax audit protection services above.

Common Questions

Is there a deadline to buy an Audit Defense Membership?

You can purchase an Audit Defense Membership at any time. However, Audit Defense Memberships must be purchased before the IRS or state taxing agency sends you a notice. If the notice from the IRS or state is dated prior to the acceptance date of your Audit Defense Membership, tax audit protection services for that audit will be excluded.

The IRS sends out notices all year-round, which is why it is important to have Audit Defense coverage in place before a notice is sent your way.

Common Questions

Is the cost of your tax audit protection service tax deductible?

Yes, the cost for our tax audit protection service is tax deductible. If you do not own a business, the charges for an Audit Defense Membership can be claimed as a personal miscellaneous itemized deduction, subject to the limitations for that deduction. If you own a business, then the portion of the expenses relating to your business is deductible as a business expense.

Common Questions

If I owe money to the IRS, will my Tax Audit Defense Membership pay my tax bill?

No, our audit protection service does not pay your tax bill, but rather it provides the essential representation needed to defend your tax return against the IRS or state taxing authority. We will relieve our audit defense members from the nightmare of ever having to face the IRS alone — and we work aggressively to ensure they receive the largest refund possible, or pay no more tax than they rightfully owe.
