Auditing is a big part of taxes and tax collection schemes. IRS can do a field audit or a work place audit along with the field audit. The main point behind an audit is that there was something suspicious or inadequate in your documentation which you submitted and the IRS needs more information before it decides to proceed with your request.
However, with the IRS’s blatant thirst to get their hands on your source of income, their zealousness in issuing audits can be considered questionable and you are allowed to have proper representation in the form of your accountant or a tax attorney whose tax preparation services were being utilized by you.
However, if you filled in your taxes yourself, if you get a chance to challenge the audit placed on you by the IRS, you are going to need a proper tax attorney who will represent you and gallantly defend you from the IRS. However, if you do not choose wisely, this gallant shield might end up caving in at the first blow.
With that in mind, here are a few pros and cons to consider before you go selecting a tax attorney:
Proper Know How
Being exclusively dedicated to studying and practicing tax laws; a tax attorney is ten times more likely to help you out effectively in any tax related problems. The tax preparation services offered by a tax attorney are more likely to be targeting your exact needs in taxes as compared to other services. However, most of an attorney’s tax preparation services were usually limited to a corporate level but more and more are offering individual services to help out families.
A tax attorney is an expensive indulgence which many people will choose to overlook. With an hourly charging fee, they make quite a good living and people who have to give money for their taxes are not too willing to pay the high fees for the tax preparation services offered by them. Although most people feel that the money is well spent, a higher majority of people opt to do their own taxes and consequently deal with their audits on their own.
If the expense of the tax attorney is daunting, seeing his qualifications might change your mind. With their vast experience and knowledge in the field of taxes, they are equipped with everything you would need to make a successful defense against the IRS with the help of their tax preparation services. However, one should always be careful when picking an attorney. Even though most come highly recommended, you should still run a background and qualification check because even though not every single attorney is a bad guy, not all of them are good guys either.
