Tax Preparation, Tax Services, and IRS Audit Defense

Certain items in the calendar are predictable such as the November / December holiday sales rush, the January physical fitness craze, and the March / April tax preparation and tax service interest. Each year, many people wait till the next to last moment to file their personal taxes. In some cases, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area, persons shop around for the best tax service or look for a second opinion, especially if they have complex tax issues such as international tax exposure or the need for an expatriate tax return. Safe Harbor LLP posts many articles to its lively blog on these topics. This April’s eLetter, however, zeroes in on an issue that can cause a lot of anxiety: IRS audits. The eLetter explain the most likely triggers of an IRS audit and advises people to realize that, in most cases, the issues are not the big. Often it is a simple data discrepancy. That said, business owners (especially those who file as a sole proprietorship and do their own taxes) are more likely to face an IRS audit. Those who are looking for a CPA firm with expertise in IRS audit defense can read the eLetter for background material, and then reach out to a tax professional for advice.
