Have you received an audit notice from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) or the Board of Equalization (BOE)? There is no need to panic. With the help of an experienced lawyer at Edgar Law Group in San Jose, you can get through this.
Make no mistake, there is a lot at stake. An audit could result in your owing thousands of dollars in back taxes to the IRS or California tax authorities. In the most serious situations, criminal charges of tax evasion or tax fraud could be brought against you. This is not the best time for the do-it-yourself approach. There is much more to do than gather your receipts, and we can make certain that everything is done properly.
Our first step as your attorneys will be to review the notice and determine what documents need to be presented. We will help you gather the documents and compile them appropriately. If we spot issues, we will take steps to resolve them immediately, even before the materials are turned over to the IRS or state auditor.
We will communicate with the auditor on your behalf. Speaking with an auditor during an audit is similar to speaking with a police officer when charged with a crime. Anything you say can be used against you. We will work with the auditor, answering questions about the documentation provided and using our knowledge of complex taxation law to explain why the information is correct and meets all requirements.
Even if you are left owing money after the audit, our early involvement may lead to a reduced tax bill. We are skilled negotiators. If negotiation is unsuccessful, we will have already set the stage for an appeal in tax court, which may be necessary.
In addition to tax-related audits, we can also counsel you in similar audits such as State of California Employment Development Department (EDD) audits.
