Tax Defense & Documentation
The IRS often requests a staggering amount of information and documentation during an audit on a 30-day timeline. For many individuals and businesses, preparing this documentation in the way that will expedite the audit and reduce tax liabilities is not something they’ve experienced before, even if they’re a seasoned tax preparer or accountant.
At Eaker Peréz, we highly value attorney-client privilege and work with clients to help them prepare appropriate documentation for an IRS audit.
In order to help protect yourself and your rights during a tax audit from the IRS, it is important to produce documentation that may help your case. We work with clients to help fulfill requests from the IRS that may include documentation such as:
- Legal Papers
- Loan agreements
- Medical records
- Theft or loss documents
- Canceled checks
- Employee documents
Having an attorney to help you with IRS audit documentation may have an impact on the outcome. Our experienced tax defense attorneys at Eaker Peréz have successfully helped thousands of clients through the audit process and bring a wealth of knowledge to the process.
