We get involved at various stages of the audit process. Many clients come to us immediately upon getting contacted by the taxing agencies. Others start the audit on their own or with their accountant, and turn to us when they feel that that the process is starting to overwhelm them. Often, we are asked to step in once a taxing agency has made an unfavorable adjustment to the taxpayer’s tax liability.
Our approach towards audits is grounded in extensive preparation and process management. Although we have achieved great results at every stage of the audit process, we feel that the best results are achieved when the client brings us in as early as possible.
We have represented our clients in audits before the IRS and the Washington State Department of Revenue resulting in saving well over the fees that were paid to us.
Working an audit is an art form. Its a dance between us and the IRS. Its getting the best results for our client using all of the tools that we have learned and developed representing clients in audits.
The best endorsement we ever received was having an IRS auditor himself say to us that “if he were ever audited, he would want us to represent him”!
