The audit rate today is 100% higher than in 2000
Encino, CA (Vocus) July 15, 2010
In fiscal-year 2009, nearly 1.4 million Americans were audited, which equates to just over 1% of all tax returns filed. The IRS also collected $48.9 billion in back taxes and penalties through collection, examination and document-matching efforts.
“The audit rate today is 100% higher than in 2000,” said Rozbruch, founder and CEO of Tax Resolution Services, Co. (TRS), a company that provides affordable solutions to people with tax problems. “Just because a taxing authority has decided to audit you, does not mean you have to roll over and die or be pushed around by the IRS. Every taxpayer has the fundamental rights of due process, fairness and representation- even if the auditor does not explain this to you.”
According to Rozbruch, an incorrect assessment by an IRS auditor can end up costing you thousands of dollars, and taxpayers who seek professional tax attorney and tax resolution services have a better chance of successfully negotiating a tax settlement than those who try to deal with an IRS audit on their own. That is why once taxpayers retain TRS, Rozbruch and his specialized team of tax relief professionals take over all communication with the IRS.
“We called Tax Resolution Services after being contacted by the IRS telling us we had two days to respond back to them. Immediately after calling, Erez my case manager, contacted the IRS on our behalf and got an extension of time to respond,” said Dan G., a TRS client from Colorado Springs, CO. “At one point an IRS field agent wanted to meet with us in person and Erez refused that request. Thank goodness. We were stressed enough as it was and it really helped to have someone speaking on our behalf. The bottom line is that Erez negotiated a ‘no-change’ letter in connection with our 2007 audit which could have resulted in an additional assessment in the hundreds of dollars.”
