How our Texas Tax Lawyers help during Texas CPA Audits
Our Texas tax attorneys work with clients before and throughout the Texas Comptroller audit process, helping them navigate document requests, deal directly with the Comptroller’s agents, and obtain the best result possible for each client’s unique tax matter.
The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has an audit process to ensure that businesses paying taxes in the state of Texas are compliant with the state rules and guidelines. Much like the IRS, the Texas CPA can audit businesses or individuals that haven’t correctly reported their taxes. How the CPA audits businesses and individuals depends on certain criteria that may include:
- Random selection
- Priority One accounts
- Taxpayers previously audited whose audits revealed tax due of $25,000 or more
- Business publications
- Information-sharing programs with other state agencies and state governments
We help our clients throughout the many different steps of the tax audit process with the Texas Comptroller office to prepare documents, interface with the Comptroller, and as well as protect your rights. We have experience helping clients from the first notice of an audit, pre-audit prep, and through the litigation and negotiation process, giving our clients a trusted and experienced partner throughout the audit process.
Texas CPA Appeals
After an audit, we work with clients to appeal decisions from the Comptroller if that is the best path forward to seek the best outcome in the client’s tax matter.
Within the guidelines of the Texas CPA, individuals and businesses may have the opportunity to appeal certain decisions that are made by the CPA. There is a specific step by step process that is required in order to appeal any denials that were made that include listing the appropriate documents that are needed, the reasons for the denial should be resubmitted, and the final decision made by the CPA.
Our experienced Texas tax attorneys at Eaker Peréz helps clients sort through the documents that are needed and may submit them on behalf of the client, work through the appeals process, and address matters on their behalf with the Texas Comptroller’s office.
If you have been audited by the Texas CPA and were given an unfavorable outcome, contact us today to talk about your options and if an appeal is right for you.
Texas Tax Settlements & Negotiations

If you are faced with an audit from the Texas CPA or believe you owe more than you have paid, contact our Texas tax law firm today to discuss your options. We may be able to negotiate a settlement to mitigate your tax liabilities based on your unique situation.
