IRS Audit Representation

Facing an IRS audit can be a daunting experience, but you don’t have to navigate it alone. At The Oasis Firm, we provide comprehensive IRS audit representation to help you through every step of the process. Our experienced professionals ensure your rights are protected and make the audit process as smooth as possible.

Understanding IRS Audits

An IRS audit is a review of your accounts and financial information to ensure information is reported correctly according to the tax laws and to verify the reported amount of tax is accurate. Here’s why you might be selected for an audit:

  • Random Selection and Computer Screening: Sometimes, returns are selected based solely on a statistical formula. The IRS compares your tax return against “norms” for similar returns.

  • Related Examinations: Your return may be selected if it involves issues or transactions with other taxpayers, such as business partners or investors, whose returns were selected for audit.

How Am I Notified?

If your account is selected for an audit, the IRS will notify you by mail. The IRS will not initiate an audit by telephone. The letter you receive will provide all contact information and instructions.

How Will the IRS Conduct My Audit?

The IRS conducts audits either by mail or through an in-person interview to review your records. The interview may take place at an IRS office (office audit) or at your home, place of business, or accountant’s office (field audit).

  • Mail Audits: The IRS will request additional information about certain items shown on your tax return, such as income, expenses, and itemized deductions.

  • In-Person Audits: These may be more comprehensive and can take place at various locations. If you have too many documents to mail, you can request a face-to-face audit.

What Do I Need to Provide?

The IRS will provide a written request for the specific documents they want to see. You are required by law to keep all records used to prepare your tax return for at least three years from the date the tax return was filed. The IRS accepts some electronic records produced by tax software, which may be requested in lieu of or in addition to other types of records.

How Far Back Can the IRS Go to Audit My Return?

Generally, the IRS can include returns filed within the last three years in an audit. If a substantial error is identified, the IRS may add additional years, but they usually don’t go back more than the last six years.
