Facing A Tax Audit? We Provide Experienced And Dedicated Assistance With IRS Audits

When you or your business receives notification about an upcoming federal tax audit, you may feel as if your life has come to a halt. The stress associated with assembling the paperwork as you prepare for an audit can be overwhelming. However, although the details of your life will be open to scrutiny, there are ways you can prepare for the process effectively with the help of an experienced tax attorney.

At the tax law firm of Bucci Law Offices, we focus on helping individuals and businesses around the world resolve complex tax controversies. We understand the serious issues you may face with an audit, and we will take the time to understand your unique situation thoroughly. Do not panic. You have numerous rights during an audit, and we will protect your rights and your interests aggressively throughout the audit process.

Risks Associated With IRS Audits

An audit may expose you to severe penalties, fines and liability for payment of back taxes. Additionally, in certain cases, you may be exposed to the possibility of criminal charges. During an audit, the IRS may examine the details of your financial affairs, including foreign and domestic bank accounts, real property holdings, employment records, debts and investments. It may also question your business associates and other third parties about your financial circumstances, potentially exposing you to embarrassment and damage to your professional reputation.

If the IRS determines there is a deficiency — that you have underpaid your tax liability — you may be subject to tax liens or levies. The time to appeal this decision is very short and requires immediate action.

Don't Try To Fight The IRS Alone

Certain factors may increase the possibility of an examination, including your economic level, the types of deductions claimed and any income omissions that were reported to the IRS by others. An experienced tax law attorney can guide you through the entire process.

At Bucci Law Offices, our highly professional lawyers have been representing individuals and businesses during the audit process for more than 18 years. We know the steps the IRS is likely to take and will take proactive, strategic steps designed to safeguard your financial interests.

Every decision you make prior to and during the audit process may affect your financial and criminal liability. Once a civil examination is underway, there may be a very little to keep the exam from converting into a criminal investigation. We know how to guide you through an "eggshell audit," stepping carefully to help prevent the auditor from suspecting illegal activity.
