Book Description

Have you received a notice from the IRS that you have been selected for an audit? Are you wondering why you were selected and unsure of what comes next? Are you worried that you may have understated your income or overstated deductions and may face penalties and interest or worse?

My name is William D. Hartsock. I am the Chairman of the San Diego Bar Association, Pro Se Program, owner of and founder of a tax law firm that is comprised of tax attorneys, CPAs, enrolled agents and bookkeepers. My firm has been aggressively representing clients before the IRS, FTB and EDD since 1982. This book will allow you to get back to sleeping soundly at night, by giving you the information that you absolutely must know when being audited.

An IRS audit isn’t an intuitive process. There isn’t much about IRS rules or procedures that make sense unless you have an immense amount of formal training and experience in tax law. The average taxpayer is simply flying blind as soon as they open the initial audit notice.

That is why I have created this roadmap. This is a basic guide that will help you through the various stages, options and strategies involved in IRS audits.

This book isn’t going to try to turn you into a tax lawyer. If you are not already a tax attorney, you probably shouldn’t try to become one. Instead, this book is going to give you a quick and simple understanding of what you absolutely must know in order to navigate an audit and make the best decisions possible throughout the process.

The US government has given the IRS incredible power to demand your time and attention, to gain access to your financial records and personal assets, and to act as both prosecutor and judge when it comes to audits.

There is good news! In order to provide balance to the power of the IRS, wide ranging rules, protections and procedures have been established in order to protect taxpayer’s rights.

Don’t waste another minute worrying about the unknown, and don’t make the mistake of letting an Auditor manipulate you into giving up your rights and procedural protections, just because you didn’t know about them.

An IRS Audit must be taken seriously, and this book is a great place for you to start. So, jump in and start reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Audit Process in Plain English July 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the book can be somewhat promotional in nature from the tax attorney, it does a good job of explaining the basics of IRS Audits. Protections under the law make it necessary for IRS staff to explain the process, protections and the rights that taxpayers have under the law. The process can be intimidating for the average taxpayer. Laws and regulations around Federal Taxation are complicated and extensive. It is important to understand the basic process in order to get the right representation to help a taxpayer navigate the process. This book is a must read for someone who has just received a letter stating that their tax return has been selected for an IRS Examination.
