Call our office today to learn more.
Finding You an Amicable Solution
The IRS conducts audits in several different manners, the most common of which are field and correspondence audits. The correspondence audit involves the IRS requesting you mail in documentation to verify information received or to clear up a potential discrepancy in the reporting. At BMH Accounting, we gather and organize your financial records and mail the appropriate information to the agency on your behalf. In most cases, this resolves the issue and no in-person meetings are necessary.
If the written correspondence doesn’t satisfy the IRS or if clearing up the initial discrepancy is more complicated, an IRS agent may want to conduct a field audit, where they visit your office for a more detail look at your records. When our clients find themselves in this situation, we take over representation completely, allowing you to avoid speaking with the IRS directly. Lauren and Corey discovered early in their career that results were more positive when our clients had our team speak on their behalf.
When our clients are tabbed for a field audit, they may also be facing liens or levies against their finances. We help you negotiate an agreeable repayment plan so your obligations are settled and you avoid further fines and penalties. If an installment plan isn’t the ideal solution, we can request an offer in compromise or have you placed in a non-collectible status so the obligation can be settled.
Helping You Avoid IRS Trouble in the Future
When our clients receive an audit notice, time is of the essence. Our team works tirelessly to strategize a manageable resolution to the current concern, but our work doesn’t stop there. We take the opportunity to educate clients on the importance of maintaining organized and accurate financial records throughout the year. By implementing effective accounting practices that clients can use regularly, we help them avoid the pitfalls that create red flags when the IRS examines your filings.
This comprehensive approach also educates clients about other tax obligations to consider, especially those running a small business. We can explain how to effectively process payroll, sales, or estate taxes so you can ensure your finances don’t wither away from tax inefficiencies.
