If you have received an examination letter from the IRS your heart probably skipped a beat just by looking at the return address.
At McDonnell Richardson CPA, PC we understand the audit process and are on your side. Keeping tax returns and the documents you used to complete them is critical if you’re ever audited. Typically, the IRS has three years to decide whether to audit your return, so keep your records for at least that long. There are circumstances that allow the IRS a longer time limit on auditing you and we recommend you keep records for seven years.
Revenue agents often overstep their boundaries when conducting audits. We will ensure that your rights are protected at all times. While we attempt to resolve all tax disputes at examination or IRS appeals, occasionally we are forced to petition the tax court for relief.
In addition, we have helped clients struggling with massive amounts of IRS debt.
