IRS Audit Representation in Huntington Beach

Tax Problems & Resolution

Both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and California tax authorities can initiate a Tax Audit; known officially as an examination.  Given the immense power of federal and state governments to investigate taxpayers and collect unpaid tax debt, this situation should not be taken lightly.  Our expertise in solving tax problems has resulted in hundreds of past clients, many still with us today, having successful resolutions.  When it comes to tax problems, experience counts.

For a resident or businesses in California, income tax audits are initiated by either the IRS or Franchise Tax Board.

Unlike criminal courts, taxpayers are considered guilty until proven innocent.  Protecting the rights of taxpayers while ensuring no information is provided above what is required may avoid leading auditors into areas that would not have been examined.

$225 – Consultation

A consultation is the first step in understanding the what the tax audit means, what options are available for resolution, and to strategize the next step.  If representation services are needed after the consultation, we provide a flat fee for most services.
