Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 27, 2012
Top Tax Defenders is making a free eBook available on a process most Americans fear but do not completely understand. The eBook, entitled “A Complete Guide to the IRS Audit Process,” is an easy to read and understand step-by-step explanation of the audit process.
IRS audits of people earning in excess of $200,000 have increased by 34 percent. In the 2010 fiscal year, the IRS reported that its enforcement and collection efforts resulted in $28 billion in civil penalties assessed against American taxpayers. Statistics such as these add validity to the concerns most business owners and individual taxpayers have when they realize they have been targeted for an audit.
“Our eBook was written to help businesses and individual taxpayers understand their rights and responsibilities during an audit,” according to Teresa K. Pitre, CEO of Top Tax Defenders. “We wanted to remove the fear factor from an IRS audit by explaining the process and preparing for it in a clear, easy to understand format.”
Most people who receive an audit notice immediately assume they have done something wrong. This is not always true. According to the IRS, audits can result from random selection, computer screening or statistical analysis. An audit of a taxpayer’s return can result in an audit of a business partner or other person or businesses with whom the audited taxpayer has done business.
Some of the topics covered in the eBook include:
The eBook was created by the tax professionals at Top Tax Defenders led by CEO Teresa K. Pitre. Ms. Pitre worked for the IRS for more than 27 years. The majority of her career was spent in the Office of Chief Counsel providing guidance and interpretive advice to IRS agents and officers. A free copy of “A Complete Guide to the IRS Audit Process” is available for download on their website.
