TAX SETTLEMENT & OFFERS IN COMPROMISE
Being Audited By The Internal Revenue Service
Audits are conducted by the IRS Examination Division or South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR). The IRS conducts audits of tax returns that have reported items of income or deductions that vary from statistical norms and on random sampling. Therefore, any Taxpayer filing returns can be audited by the IRS. These audits are conducted by a Revenue Agent from the IRS Examination Division. In addition, state taxing agencies including the SCDOR conduct audits on individual income tax returns, as well as payroll and sales tax returns.
Why You Need Representation
A Taxpayer being audited will want to avoid proposed adjustments to a tax return or returns that would result in an increased tax, interest and penalties. Securing an experienced advocate as soon as possible during an IRS or SCDOR examination is critical in order to preserve your rights and achieve a favorable outcome. As a tax attorney with more than 30 years of experience, John Kachmarsky and the staff at the Law Office of John Kachmarsky have the skills and knowledge necessary to guide a Taxpayer through an audit, into Appeals, and eventually Tax Court (SC Administrative Law Judge if the audit is being conducted by the SCDOR) if necessary to achieve a favorable outcome.
