Tax Audits

Few things in life are more intimidating than facing a tax audit examination. A tax audit is the examination of an individual or business return to verify that all items reported are accurate and substantiated. Our tax practice focuses primarily on audit representation (in field, mail, or office audits) for individuals and small businesses, both on domestic issues and international/treaty positions.
