An audit can happen to anyone at anytime. The idea that only certain types of returns are audited – or that it won’t happen to the average taxpayer – is a myth.

TaxResources, Inc. has announced the launch of its brand new website. The company’s redesigned site has a fresh new look that is easy to navigate and offers three levels of Audit Defense memberships specifically designed to fit the varied needs of taxpayers. These memberships provide complete professional representation before the IRS or state agency when a taxpayer is audited.
“Last year the IRS audited 11 percent more taxpayers than in the prior year. With the latest batch of newly trained auditors hitting the streets, more taxpayers will be audited in 2011,” said Mark Olander, Executive Vice President. “It is more important than ever to be prepared. We want to make sure every taxpayer has the opportunity to have Audit Defense in case the IRS chooses them for an audit or questions them about their tax return. If a taxpayer purchases Audit Defense each year for a lifetime, just one audit or notice will reimburse that investment.”
Olander continued, “An audit can happen to anyone at anytime. The idea that only certain types of returns are audited – or that it won’t happen to the average taxpayer – is a myth. Most tax returns are audited because an error was made or the return had issues on it that IRS believes will produce additional tax dollars. A large number of income tax audits are generated randomly by a computer. You could do everything right, and the IRS will still contact you.”
Taxpayers who are audited are often unaware of the options available to them. They often bow to the wishes of the IRS, not realizing that they could have had a tax professional representing them. As David Ramirez, a professional tax representative and Enrolled Agent at TaxResources, states, “Tax laws are not likely to be understood by the general public. Unfortunately, they are just too complicated. Many times the taxpayer just wants the audit to go away, not realizing they have a strong case against the IRS. The IRS has every advantage and it’s an unfair fight. Representation by a qualified tax professional evens the playing field.”
