What Does Audit Defense Mean?

Businesses are always striving to increase their bottom line, and oftentimes this involves taking as many tax deductions and credits as possible in order to reduce the company’s tax liability. The IRS is constantly on patrol for businesses claiming any deductions or credits that the agency deems to be “out-of-the-ordinary,” even if the company has rightfully claimed those amounts.

If the IRS suspects a business has wrongfully claimed a deduction or credit, the agency can place the company’s tax return, or returns, under audit. These audits can be done through the mail, at a company’s place of business or even at an IRS field office. Audits can be both incredibly overwhelming and intimidating for any business, regardless of their tax experience.

My experience at the IRS showed me exactly what it is that businesses face when the agency begins an audit. It can certainly be an intimidating experience, and that’s why working with alliantNational to help businesses through that daunting process is so rewarding.
