The Scariest Letter You Will Ever Get
One of the scariest letters that a taxpayer may receive in the mail from the IRS is a Notice of Examination letter. This letter serves as notification that the IRS is wanting to review certain sections of your tax return(s).
If you are not able to adequately provide the requested information and documentation, then the IRS will potentially expand the scope and years of the Audit.
IRS changes made to your return(s) through the Audit process may result in large liabilities, so hiring quality representation to protect yourself is highly recommended.
