Receiving a notification that the IRS wants to audit your past tax returns can make even the most organized taxpayer panic. Facing a tax audit without the help of a skilled IRS audit attorney can be time-consuming, frustrating, and emotionally draining. In addition, going it alone could result in paying more than you actually owe.

Our Chicago tax attorneys have extensive experience defending IRS and Illinois tax audits. We know how to navigate your audit safely and get the lowest tax bill possible for you!
Although anyone undergoing an audit can benefit from hiring a tax audit attorney, some situations are more complex than others. Consider professional audit help if you have any of the following situations:
If so, each of those items will need to be verified during the audit process. Additionally, we may find more credits and deductions that you could have claimed on your tax return, which helps lower your tax bill!
If you invest in stocks, bonds, real estate, cryptocurrency, or other investments, your audit could become complicated. Our team is experienced with each of these income types and the special rules associated with them.
Self-employment income—whether you’re freelancing or running a business—comes with many tax benefits, but it can also raise the chances that you’ll owe money after an audit. It’s important to take advantage of every possible deduction and penalty abatement strategy!
Having proper records is key for a strong audit defense. If you feel like you don’t even know where to begin, our attorneys will make it all crystal clear.

An IRS audit lawyer offers attorney-client privilege, ensuring that what you say remains confidential—even if the audit escalates into a civil or criminal investigation. Other tax professionals, including Enrolled Agents and Certified Public Accountants, can’t offer this level of privilege.

As you can see, there are many circumstances that can potentially trigger an IRS audit. If you are the subject of an audit, you will receive a letter in the mail. Note that the IRS will not contact you to initiate an audit via telephone, text message, or email correspondence.
