The IRS can seem like the big bully on the block when they come knocking. They want to audit you and dig through your personal financial information to figure out if you have been paying your taxes properly or not. This is not only uncomfortable but highly stressful as well. You might suddenly find yourself staying up late at night worrying about where you have stored away different records that they are demanding. It is definitely not the kind of place that you want to find yourself in if you can avoid it.
At the end of the day, the IRS is going to do their audit regardless. You have to make sure that you have as much of the documentation that you need put together in order for them to review it with you. Make sure that you keep records of everything throughout the year. This is the easiest way to make sure that you have a case to argue when it comes time to do so.
At some point you may find that you simply disagree with the findings that the IRS has come up with in their audit. You may believe that you do not really owe what they say you do at the end of their audit. That is something that happens all the time.
The IRS is a massive agency that does audits for thousands if not millions of people ever year. There is ever chance in the world that they have messed up on some part of yours causing it to appear as though you owe more money than you really do to them. That is not something that you want to just let stand. Instead, you have to remember that you retain your rights in these situations.
Your right to disagree with the findings of the IRS is something very central to your ability to be a productive taxpayer in society in general. This means that you ought to do what you can to do battle with the IRS when you find it necessary.
In the event that you do not agree with the findings of an audit, schedule a meeting with the IRS agent who did the audit on you in the first place. You might be surprised by just how cooperative they can be. You should consider bringing a tax attorney with you in some situations if you feel that the tax attorney would best represent your position and your disagreement with the findings. They might be able to protect your particular stake in this case. Weigh out your options and try to determine if you do in fact need an attorney to help you with your case.
