IRS Correspondence Audits

If the Internal Revenue Service is going to audit you or your client, it will most likely conduct a mail audit. In 2011, the IRS conducted 1.2 million mail audits, representing a 124 percent increase from ten years ago. In fact, the IRS conducts more than three out of four audits by mail. Unfortunately, there are still problems with the IRS methods for processing correspondence audits. Negative consequences include delays and inaccurate adjustments. Significantly, taxpayers who do not deal correctly with correspondence audits can receive a statutory notice of deficiency, which can potentially force a taxpayer to file a petition in Tax Court. This OnDemand Webinar will help taxpayers and practitioners understand the process for correctly handling an IRS correspondence audit. This program will give practical advice to help streamline what can be an otherwise stressful situation that can cost many thousands of dollars.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to define privelege issues.
  • You will be able to review how to deal with penalties.
  • You will be able to explain statute of limitations issues.
  • You will be able to discuss important documentation issues.
