Auditing and Correspondence
Know what you’re good at.
Understanding a highly matrixed organization like the Internal Revenue Service comes with practice. There’s also a language and style that comes with years of experience. So when it comes to dealing with auditing and correspondence, sometimes you’re better off letting a professional handle it —especially when you’re in the midst of an audit.
Communication with the IRS is more effective when you have an Enrolled Agent representing you. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
