Do I Have A Right To IRS Representation?
Every single taxpayer has a legal right to retain a qualified and authorized representative to represent you in dealings and disputes with the IRS, as defined in the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. Certified public accountants, attorneys, and enrolled agents are among the persons able to represent you and communicate with the IRS on your behalf.
Why Do I Need IRS Representation
From A Certified Public Accountant?
Upon receiving a notice from the IRS, some people try to handle the communications themselves. This may not be advisable for a variety of reasons. First, the process of an IRS audit can be extremely time-consuming, confusing, and exhausting. It requires precise attention to detail to carefully review, interpret, and respond to IRS questioning. Organizing and responding to requests for records and paperwork can also take up most of one’s time, keeping business leaders away from important company matters.
Another issue with handling IRS communications alone is the possibility of mistakes. In some cases, IRS auditors may seek more information than you are legally obliged to provide to them. Having a licensed tax professional by your side can ensure you are filing and submitting the correct records, meeting the necessary deadlines, and responding appropriately to requests.
