Tax Audits and Examinations
Receiving a notice of an Internal Revenue Service, Colorado Department of Revenue, or other state or local taxing authority audit can be intimidating, even if you are unsure of why you are being audited in the first place, or know/believe that you have done nothing wrong.
The tax audit is your opportunity to convince the Internal Revenue Service, Colorado Department of Revenue, or other state or local taxing authority that your tax return is correct. The repercussions of mistakes made during the audit can be catastrophic, can damage your chance of success, and may leave no other option than to litigate.
If you are facing an audit by the Internal Revenue Service, Colorado Department of Revenue, or other state or local taxing authority, you have the right to be represented. Regardless of the circumstances of your audit, your greatest chances of closing the audit quickly and with the least brain damage/best result is to hire an experienced tax attorney to represent you. Doing so can save you headaches, time, and money.
