We understand that one of the most dreaded letters you can receive is one beginning with the words "your tax return has been selected for audit."
It has been our experience that most tax returns selected for audit were chosen for one of two reasons. One, random selection, and two specific items on the return were viewed as being “suspicious” by the Internal Revenue Service or a state-taxing agency. The letter you receive will not tell you which reason your return has been selected. As a result, it may be very dangerous to attempt to represent yourself in an audit.
Businesses and taxpayers representing themselves without any knowledge about how the “system” works are at a major disadvantage. People representing themselves also run the risk of being criminally prosecuted for “making a false statement.”
