San Antonio IRS Audits
An IRS audit can be a very frightening and stressful situation. Knowing the IRS wants to take a second, closer look at your tax return, whether it is the entire return or just a portion of it, such as expenses claimed for meals, entertainment or travel, can be a very nerve-racking experience.

As tax attorneys helping clients in San Antonio and as former IRS attorneys, we see and have seen it all.
Taxpayers often try to represent themselves in an IRS audit. They may think that the laws are simple and that the IRS employees will be reasonable. Even an honest effort to fill out your entire tax return correctly isn’t good enough.
The IRS audit process is not simple and it often produces unreasonable results. This is especially true if you have to experience a face-to-face audit. Traditionally, however, the majority of IRS audits are done via correspondence. In other words, most IRS audits are in the form of letters asking for explanations of various tax items on a tax return or requesting supporting documentation. The fact of the matter is that on average only about one-third of all IRS audits are done on a face-to-face basis with a revenue agent, tax compliance officer, or tax examiner.
More often than not, an IRS audit of a tax return will result in changes to the return. Whether these changes are good or bad for the taxpayer depends on the situation. The no-change rate, or the number of returns accepted as filed after the examination is pretty low.
Luckily, the audit rate is low. This is of little consultation if your return is pulled for audit. What if you happen to be in that unlucky small percent of returns that are pulled for an audit?

Your Experienced Guide, From Start To Finish
Don’t assume the worst if you have been chosen for a tax audit. Being audited is not an indication that you have done anything wrong; returns are selected based on several criteria, including:
- Random selection
- Tax returns where information on tax documents is inconsistent
- Tax returns related to others that have been chosen for auditing
As your legal representative, we will be able to handle all necessary correspondence with the IRS. This includes organizing the documentation that the IRS will need when conducting its examination. We will work diligently until the IRS has completed its audit; if we determine that they reached a faulty decision, we can appeal that decision; if changes to your return require payment of taxes, we will help you pursue the most advantageous option for your situation.
