Janet Gravenor 
Senior Tax Manager

Nothing frightens business owners and individual taxpayers more than receiving an IRS audit or tax deficiency notice in the mail. We immediately assure our clients that battling an IRS notice dispute or audit is often not as catastrophic as it may initially appear. The IRS randomly flags certain tax returns for audit to fulfill its annual quota requirements, and the majority of legitimate audits can be resolved through information exchange and aggressive negotiations to reduce any outstanding tax liabilities and penalties owed. 

Regardless of the reasons provided by the IRS for initiating an audit or the complexity of the issues involved, we provide every IRS audit support service necessary to minimize the inevitable stress of the situation. We manage every step of the IRS audit representation process, including assessing potential exposure, compiling all supporting documentation and information necessary to contest the audit, researching critical legal issues that will substantiate minimizing or eliminating the amount demanded, responding to IRS requests for information and negotiating with the IRS to achieve the best tax dispute resolution possible under the circumstances. 

We also understand you have no desire whatsoever to communicate directly with the IRS, so we handle all communications to ensure you remain in the background of the tax audit resolution process as much as possible. We communicate with you frequently to give peace of mind in knowing we are managing every part of the dispute at all times. Uncertainty about the future is understandable when confronted with an IRS dispute, but we always go the extra mile to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible so you can return to focusing on your business and personal life.
