Have you received a notice from the IRS stating your return has been selected for examination or audit? 

IRS audits should be taken seriously because they often lead to additional tax years being selected for examination and other tax deductions not originally stated in the audit letter.  IRS tax auditors are experts at evaluating nervous taxpayers and discovering things not covered in the initial audit notice. Having a tax professional on your side can significantly increase the odds of you getting a better outcome in your audit. Having a tax professional represent you before the IRS can be a great decision and can actually end up saving you money.
