Tax Representation

Tax Representation


The letter can be anything from “We think you may have made a mistake” to “this is your Notice of Deficiency and you have 90 days to settle up or got to Tax Court” so it’s important to have a professional Tax Accountant Fredericksburg VA. Most issues are pretty straightforward and easy to straighten out but sometimes the IRS is just flat wrong or you weren’t given your due process in trying to work with them.

Maybe you need time to pay or just can’t ever pay all you owe. Maybe you have a wage garnishment that is just too much. Maybe you just don’t have a clue what they want and can’t find anybody who will help you (if you can get them to answer the phone). That’s where we can help. We have worked with the IRS for years and understand what has to happen and how to represent your case to them for the best results. Just as every taxpayer is different, every IRS agent is different and no single approach is best.

We can:

Relieve the pressure

Use our knowledge to negotiate the best deal for both sides

Help you avoid expensive appeals or Offers in Compromise unless they make sense

Help you avoid a deal that sets you up for future failure and more IRS dealings

An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally licensed tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation and is empowered by the Department of Treasury to represent taxpayers for audits, collections, and appeals before all administrative levels of the IRS. Enrolled Agents are the only representatives directly licensed by the US government and may represent taxpayers in any state, unlike CPAs and attorneys who’s licenses are state specific.

Did you receive a letter from the IRS? The first step is not to panic—the IRS always communicates with letters, even if you’ve applied for a job with them. If your tax return has been selected for re-examination, it doesn’t always mean you’ve made an error. But there are deadlines for responding, and you’ll have time to prepare your response.

IRS issues can be extremely difficult and challenging. This is especially true if you are facing an audit, owe the IRS back taxes or have a business.

The letter can be anything from “We think you may have made a mistake”  to “This is your Notice of Deficiency and you have 90 days to settle up or go to Tax Court”. Most issues are pretty straightforward and easy to straighten out. But sometimes, the IRS is just flat wrong or you weren’t given your due process in trying to work with them. Tax laws are complicated, and you’ll need some help sorting it all out.
