When there is a Mail Audit In an IRS audit, the IRS examines the records used to prepare your tax return to determine whether you owe more taxes. A mail audit is the most common type of audit, and is conducted entirely by mail. Mail audits typically focus on one or two simple issues, such as filing status, exemptions, deductions or tax credits.
How to respond to a mail audit The IRS will send you a notice requesting specific supporting documents for items being examined. You should gather the supporting documents, which your tax professional will send to the IRS. All information should be carefully organized so that it can be easily processed by the IRS. Your tax professional will guide you through the mail audit process, with a goal of achieving the most favorable audit outcome.
What your Tax Appointed Representative will do for you: 1. First, your Tax Appointed Representative will ask you to provide records to support the items under audit. 2. Next, your Tax Appointed Representative will compare the items reported on your tax return to your supporting documents. 3. Your Tax Appointed Representative will also review your current and prior year returns for potential audit risk items. 4. Then, your Tax Appointed Representative will discuss with you whether he or she thinks the return is correct or if the audit will likely result in a tax change. 5. Finally, your Tax Appointed Representative l will prepare and submit a response to the IRS. Your tax professional will answer any questions the IRS has about the information.
The IRS will issue a final audit report, which may or may not indicate changes to your return. If you disagree with the report, your tax professional will help you determine whether to appeal. If you appeal, your tax professional can represent you throughout the process.
What you may need to do: You may need to provide your tax professional with documents to support the items reported on your tax return. You may also need to sign an IRS form authorizing your tax professional to contact the IRS on your behalf.
