Tax Audit Defense

A tax audit can be overwhelming. Your behavior during the audit is critical to its outcome. IRS auditors are trained to extract information from you. If you're alone and not properly prepared, you can expose your business and incur devastating penalties.

It's a crime not to pay taxes. But usually, the IRS will not press criminal charges. If you hear from the Criminal Investigation Department, you should realize the situation is very serious. Contact a tax attorney immediately!
