Whether you have already purchased audit defense from TaxAudit or are curious what a membership with us includes, many taxpayers have the same question: What exactly is audit defense? And what does it mean to be a member with us?

While we cannot speak to the audit defense services other companies provide, we can share what audit defense looks like here at TaxAudit! At our organization, audit defense means you will have professional representation in the case of receiving an audit notice from the IRS or any state income taxing agency. It means avoiding the unknown expense that typically comes with representation for audits or notices, in which taxpayers typically pay hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars for in-depth audit representation. It means working with world-class tax professionals who represent taxpayers across the country every single day and who are experts in this field. It means never having to meet with or speak with the IRS or any state taxing agency. Instead, you’ll have someone who will prepare all necessary documentation, schedule all phone calls, attend all meetings, and make sure you never have to pay more income tax than what you rightfully owe if your return is audited. Purchasing audit defense with us means being a member of the largest audit representation firm in the country in which thousands of audits are defended every single year.

If you are curious about whether or not this service is beneficial, we encourage you to check out the below testimonials from just a handful of our members whom we have helped within the last several months!
 

From my first interaction with your team, I felt supported, heard and I knew they were going to help me. Every step of the way I was informed on all of what your team was working on and was told what to expect. Thank you. And very specially to Bijayini.

Charles was excellent. He explained what was going to happen, what we needed to do, and what to expect in response from the IRS. He kept in regular touch even when nothing was happening from the IRS.

Betty was an unbelievably solid resource that we felt very secure working with. She was exacting, personal, and professional all wrapped up in one interface. We would love to continue to work with her if the needs arises again in the future.

Andrew eased my anxiety immediately with his clear approach to resolving the issue. He was able to have direct contact with the IRS which helped tremendously with avoiding written communication that seemed to get lost at the IRS. He communicated with me with the progress and conversations with the IRS that enabled me to feel comfortable that an optimal resolution could be achieved.
