Business Tax Audit Services

Independent Accounting Services
provides services to "audit-proof" you and your business

 

It must first be factually stated that no one can guarantee that you will never be audited. Several factors can lead to a individual or business being audited. Some of the factors may be purely random. So no true tax professional would ever make such an assertion. Nevertheless, the small-business Owner is the very one most likely to be targeted by the IRS. “The IRS has decided to focus most of its audit resources on small businesses and the self-employed,” says Robert Stovall, director of the National Audit Defense Network.
