Post: IRS Audit
Posted by Anne on 1/28/09
Just back from a meeting with my CPA. My audit is tomorrow
and he has scared me to death, telling me I'm going to
prison, losing my house...some really scary stuff.
I have my checks and receipts from 2005 but I'm not sure
they are in 100% perfect order.
My CPA required me to pay him $1000 to represent me at this
meeting in his office (he was the preparer of record). He
wants me there but I am planning on saying little to nothing
and taking a lot of notes.
Is there such a thing as part 2 of an IRS audit? If there
are documents missing, will I have a chance to try to find
them or is this my only chance? I had only 30 days to
prepare for this audit.
Will the Federal marshalls be there to arrest me and haul me
off to prison right then and there?
I was audited 40 years ago over $200. I could prove that
yes, I did donate that amount, case closed. Since then, I've
not had any problems with the IRS until now. Lucky me.
