Responding to an IRS or FTB Audt Requests
While receiving an audit request may seem terrifying, Safe Harbor LLP helps its clients respond in the most efficient and legally acceptable way. For most clients, the best practice is to keep good records and file tax returns in a timely fashion. For its on-going client base, Safe Harbor LLP helps clients to make sure that both record-keeping and tax filing are done properly and on time. For those clients who do receive an IRS and/or FTB audit request, the firm helps them respond in a timely and legally appropriate fashion. If needed, extensions can be requested and the firm will meet with the IRS and/or FTB representative along with the client to make sure that the information provided is correct. That said, the goal of Safe Harbor LLP is to minimize taxes paid to the full extent of the law. So the first step for an individual or business receiving an audit request letter is to reach out for a consultation with one of the firm’s expert accountants.
