During the audit process, you maintain the following rights that the IRS
- Tax matters kept in confidentiality
- Reason for audit clearly stated
- Informed how your tax information will be used
- Professional mannerisms from the IRS representatives
- Legal representation permitted
- Chance to appeal IRS conclusions
At the end of a tax audit, the IRS will decide that:
- Your audit was acceptable and requires no changes.
- Your audit requires changes and you agree to the changes.
- Your audit requires changes and you do not agree.
Reaching an accepted outcome is usually directly dependent on the experience
and knowledge of your attorney. If an unacceptable outcome is reached,
you will need to prepare for further investigation. In rare cases, litigation
may be required to protect your rights and finances.
