Before you decide you must immediately comply with the amount the IRS says you owe, you may find it beneficial to call upon the expertise of Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell. Our tax and accounting professionals have worked with the IRS and state and local authorities on behalf of hundreds of individuals and businesses, and can bring that experience to bear on your particular situation.
It is not unusual for the IRS to conduct audits of individuals and businesses simply to ensure the accuracy of the taxes they believe are due. But while an IRS audit may take taxpayers by surprise, causing dismay and anxiety, your decision to partner with an experienced tax professional can help you better understand whether a mistake has been made on your behalf…or on that of the IRS.
