The purpose of a tax audit or return examination is to show filings to the IRS and state tax authorities are correct according to tax law. Under the enforcement division, these tax agencies use agents and computer tools to identify and resolve taxpayer errors. Hiring a tax attorney to help with an audit can benefit you in many ways. It can significantly bolster your chances of getting a better outcome. Many people don’t realize that audits can go both ways and you may actually end up being owed money after an audit. A tax attorney can analyze your situation and find the best strategy to take in order to get the best outcome.
