The IRS has the ability to audit anyone that they suspect may have incorrectly filed their tax returns. They can take almost whatever measures they deem necessary to get the funds that are rightfully owed to the US Government. However, you also have rights in these situations. Even though the government may seem to want to trample over you during this process, it is your responsibility to fight back.
Getting audited repeatedly is stressful and annoying. Many people who are audited don’t even have an errors or owe any extra money to the government. They are simply flagged in a system somewhere for whatever reason, and that flagging causes them to have to go through that audit process over and over again. A number of people who have to do that are rightfully frustrated.
A tax attorney or advocate can be a great resource in these situations. They can speak with the IRS directly on your behalf to put an end to these ridiculous audits. They can show the IRS agents how you have been targeted over and over again without any particular need. Most importantly, they can try to convince the IRS to shut down the investigation into your income that they have opened yet again. In some cases, just having an attorney or advocate talk to them is literally enough for them to agree to back off. It wouldn’t seem like it would be that easy, but in some cases it really is.
In a number of cases an official letter from a lawyer lets the IRS know that you are serious about trying to get them off your back. They hear complaints from taxpayers every single day. That is nothing new to them, and they are not interested in hearing just another complaint. However, if they can get word from an actual lawyer about what is going on, then they can potentially take a deeper look at things and perhaps even see your side of the issue.
In order to get the IRS to stop coming after you again and again you will probably have to show them where previous audits have turned up little or no additional taxes owed. That is a good way to show the IRS that they are actually wasting their time auditing you once more. They may see this and decide to stop using their resources to go after you when it has not been all that fruitful for them in the past.
Auditors for the IRS are human beings too (believe it or not!) and they just want to do the best work that they can. They will make mistakes along the way, and that is acceptable. It is simply important to correct them when they come up.
