We can represent you in the case of an audit with any governmental agency. IRS auditors know the fear they strike in people and they can take advantage of that fear. You have the right to represent yourself but we do not recommend that you do. An audit really does require a comprehensive understanding of tax law.
By us representing you, rarely would you have to take time away from your business or family to gather information or appear in front of the IRS. With us by your side, we would work and speak on your behalf. All we need is your notification of an audit and we can handle it from there.
WHAT IS AN ‘EA’ AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Forward Focus founder, Cheri Hughes is an Enrolled Agent.
Enrolled Agents (EAs) are federally-licensed tax practitioners who may represent taxpayers before the IRS when it comes to collections, audits and appeals. As authorized by the Department of Treasury, EAs are granted unlimited practice rights to represent taxpayers before IRS and are authorized to advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any entities with tax-reporting requirements.
Enrolled agents are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
