IRS Audits

Get an upper hand on the IRS. For tax audit appeals, representation, and counsel, Lothamer is on your side from Day 1.

Skilled IRS Tax Audit Representation

Few things send a chill of panic into the heart like finding a letter from the IRS in your mail. While many of these letters turn out to be simple requests for information, like a copy of your 1099, official IRS audits can be panic-inducing events. To make it through an audit successfully, you need to understand what the auditor is looking for, avoid the pitfalls of divulging too much or too little information, and pass a highly trained professional’s scrutiny.

Thankfully, the CPAs, tax attorneys, and CPAs at Lothamer have navigated hundreds of audits, successfully representing clients through audit defenses, appeals, and tax debt disputes. We conduct an exhaustive and private review of your financial records in our office before the scheduled audit date to uncover any potential problem areas. Then, we manage all correspondence and meet with the IRS on your behalf, letting them know that you are serious about defending your tax return.

Before you speak to or meet with an auditor, contact Lothamer Tax Resolution for expert advice and guidance.

How We Can Help You During a Tax Audit

If you are being audited by the IRS, one of the most important early pieces of advice we can offer is NOT to allow an auditor into your home or place of business. Auditors are trained to gather information about your lifestyle, standard of living, and other information not necessarily related to your tax return. Allowing them to profile you by surveying your property could increase the scope of your tax audit.

Allow Lothamer to represent you instead—we have decades of experience dealing with auditors and representing clients before the IRS. We understand the best practices for what to say and how to say it, drawing the eye of the IRS only where it needs to go. We rarely have our clients meet with the IRS or attend an audit. One of the best defenses is to limit the scope of the audit, and no one knows how to do this better than Lothamer. We strongly recommend that you contact us prior to speaking with or meeting with your auditor. We can help you compile and file all necessary paperwork, including requests for an extension of your audit appointment, on the same day that you engage our services. And in the case of missing records, we many times reconstruct the accounting records to arrive at the true taxable income.
