"You don't want to fight this fight alone. You need experts. You need Tax Defense Partners™ If you owe $10,000 or more in back taxes, are under audit, or have unfiled returns, they can help." - Rush Limbaugh
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
"TDP was very helpful and knowledgeable. The best part of my settlement, besides the settlement itself, was that I didn't have to deal with the IRS myself- Eliminated stress."
IRS Tax Audits
Did you know that over 50% of the referrals that the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) get are from the Revenue Agent you are about to sit across the table from?!
At TDP, we approach every audit engagement as if we (the client) were walking on "egg shells". That's because the IRS asks about 54 very innocent sounding interview questions at the initial meeting. How they are answered dictates your fate for the rest of the Exam. For instance answering them truthfully AND not raising any red flags is the trick. Most people (without proper and expert representation) either are not truthful in their responses and the ones that are "talk too much" and tend to incriminate themselves and give out too much information. If this happens, you are in BIG trouble.
Going to an audit on your own, without professional expert representation on your side, is like a boxer going into a fight without boxing gloves. You are way out of your "league" if you think this is a smart idea. The IRS selects returns for audit that have the greatest potential for additional tax to be collected. At TDP, our goal is to obtain "No Change" letter (if appropriate) or make certain, that if there is additional tax to be assessed, that is the lowest amount under law. If you are audited you need HELP! PERIOD!
The IRS can audit you by mail, in their offices, or in your office or home. The location of your audit is a good indication of the severity of the audit.
All IRS audits should be taken seriously because they often lead to other tax years and other tax deductions not originally stated in the audit letter.
Are you being audited?
by the Internal Revenue Service, Franchise Tax Board, State Board of Equalization, Employment Development Department or other State Department of Taxation?
If you choose to go it alone and handle the IRS Audit yourself, you will get creamed - It's like going to court without a lawyer and worse yet, the fear that your case may be referred to criminal investigations for criminal prosecution should be reason enough alone to seek help.
Pause...take a deep breath
Just because a taxing authority has decided to audit you, does not mean you have to roll over or die or be pushed around. Every taxpayer has the fundamental rights of due process, fairness and representation- even if the auditor "forgets" to explain this to you. WE KNOW YOUR RIGHTS INSIDE AND OUT. WE KNOW HOW TO PRESERVE THOSE RIGHTS AND "WORK" THOSE RIGHTS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.
Protect your rights!
Be firm with any tax auditor regarding your rights and behave in a professional and courteous manner.
What are the risks of not having expert representation?
Ultimately, this can cost the taxpayer thousands of dollars
Remember, in addition to any "findings" by the auditor of unpaid taxes, you will also be assessed interest and penalties.
Would you go into a court room without a lawyer?
Do not take chances...hire an expert who will vigorously and objectively defend your rights
