Do Not Make the Mistake of Representing Yourself in an Audit

Many people called into tax audits try to represent themselves or ask their tax return preparer to represent them. This is almost always a mistake. There are many reasons why you need a tax attorney.

IRS tax auditors receive special training in interviewing techniques and methods of eliciting damaging information from unsuspecting taxpayers. They are constantly on the lookout for conflicting statements or clues that could lead to further investigation and greater liability.

In many instances, tax return preparers are not comfortable in these situations nor are they knowledgeable about the audit process. They are poorly equipped to represent clients in an audit because they are usually defending their own work if an audit is initiated. A San Jose tax audit attorney, on the other hand, can explain or correct any issues that may exist.

Remember the old adage among attorneys: "The lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client." The same applies to an individual or tax return preparer representing themselves in an audit. A San Jose tax audit attorney can make a dramatic difference in your case.
