Audit Assistance

The risk of an audit has increased!

Audits are often terrifying experiences for small business owners.  The reason for an IRS audit is the known fact of the Tax Gap.

The gross Tax Gap is the difference between true tax liability for a given tax year and the amount that is paid on time. It is comprised of the non-filing gap, the underreporting gap, and the underpayment (or remittance) gap.

What information is the Auditor Looking For?

Unreported Income

Whether you’re subject to an income tax audit, unreported income is usually the first stop for an auditor. Income is often reported to the government by multiple parties. The government has every right to double check their records.
