Tax Audit Support and Defense

When you’re facing an IRS audit, you should seek legal counsel to understand your rights and have someone on your side who’s representing your interests. While you might first think about hiring a CPA or accountant, those professionals may lack the knowledge or experience to defend you in an audit situation.

Our tax attorneys not only have strong tax knowledge, but we can also negotiate on your behalf and defend you — if needed — in any litigation. A tax audit includes unfamiliar procedures and terminology, but we can explain what the auditor needs and walk you through each step. Our team can detect if your tax returns face greater scrutiny, which may mean that an auditor is looking for possible criminal intent.

Should you receive an unfavorable audit, you’ll face penalties, tax liability, interest, and perhaps even criminal charges. When you work with a tax attorney, you’ll have someone speaking for you and protecting your rights. Our tax attorneys ensure that you’re treated fairly within the rules of law. We can negotiate to potentially reduce tax liabilities and advise you on what you’re required, legally, to provide.

Our attorneys will:

  • Help you organize the documentation you need
  • Discuss and prepare you for the auditor’s questions
  • Guide you through the audit system and make sure the investigation proceeds properly
  • Resolve audit issues
  • Negotiate the amount you owe
  • Appeal audit results to the IRS Appeals Office
  • Represent you at audit hearings and, if necessary, in court

The tax attorneys at Gross McGinley have significant experience representing clients facing an IRS or State of Pennsylvania tax return audit. If you’ve received notification of an audit, we advise you to talk to one of our attorneys who specializes in these matters.

    Have questions? Need to speak to someone about your legal needs? We're here to help.
