Can You Beat The Odds When Facing An IRS Audit?

Education & Training with Apex Tax Defense LLC

I focus my practice on tax resolution, representing taxpayers in Colorado, Florida, Texas, New York, California and elsewhere. It seems like virtually every single day I receive a notice on behalf of one of my clients from the IRS, and it contains penalties owed.

When it comes to tax audits, the IRS wins 80% of the time when you are not represented by a qualified practitioner. Taxpayers are deemed guilty until proven innocent, which menas the IRS can start an audit by disallowing every deduction you made on a return until each one is proven to be legitimate. 

If a taxing authority has decided to audit you, it's important that you don't let yourself be pushed around by the IRS. Additionally, if you don't file your taxes, the IRS may file them for you. This is a bad thing as the IRS files the return in theirs, not yours, best interest.

Having representation for audits vastly improves your chances for successful tax resolution. As the proverb says, "he who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client". Treat an IRS audit as seriously as you would a murder trial. Would you go to court without a lawyer? Then why would you go before the IRS without competent representation?
