Surviving an IRS Tax Audit: The Tax Litigation Process, Part 2

By Julie Houth

Taxpayers are faced with an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax audit when the IRS believes it has found an error or an intentional misreporting. The taxpayer then becomes responsible for payment of the recalculated return amount and any interest penalties. Although most taxpayers are not selected by the IRS to undergo a tax audit, those who do get picked by the IRS should seek help understanding the process and possibly consult with a tax professional such as a seasoned tax lawyer who has handled several tax audits. This article is the second in a two-part series intended to provide guidance and outline the steps of the tax litigation process to tax lawyers and their clients from a tax lawyer with extensive experience in all stages of a tax audit.
