Kinds of Audits

There are four common kinds of IRS tax audits:

Correspondence Audit - it is a letter from the IRS service center. The center may request you to send copies of your canceled checks and/or receipts for verification of certain deductions on the audited tax return. This type of audit is done in case of small, simple tax returns.

Office audit - you will get the notice of an office audit through the mail. It will mention about certain items on the tax return in question and will request you or your representative to present substantial documents to the local IRS office. This audit is generally conducted for small, sole proprietorship businesses with sales under $500,000.

Field audit - in case of a field audit, the IRS revenue agent will personally call the owner/president/general partner. The IRS will notify you about the selection of the tax return for audit and examination. The revenue agent will come down to your place of business for the audit. It is done in case of incorporated businesses and partnerships.

It will have an initial telephone contact and the IRS agent may ask for the following:

Interview with the principals, a specific date to visit your business, finding out the location of the records, a list of records that are to be made available.

It is crucial that during a field audit, you have proper representation. The IRS agent is instructed to interview you and go to your business so that he/she can ask detailed questions about your business operations and see the business facility first hand. We handle IRS audits regularly call this a "fishing expedition". Your representative will attempt to buffer you from this type of questioning and probing. More than likely, your representative will attempt to have the audit conducted in his/her office rather than your business.

TCMP audit - Taxpayer Compliance Measurement Program audit. It is used to update the data used to write the DIF scoring program. In this audit, you will have to substantiate every part of the tax return with proper documentation.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation! Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!
