    IRS, FTB, EDD, & CDTFA Tax Audit Attorneys for Architects + Architectural Firms

    If you or your architectural firm has been selected for a state or federal tax audit, you should protect yourself by retaining the services of a competent audit defense attorney in Los Angeles. Even if you believe that you have not made any tax compliance errors, it is impossible to rule out the possibility that your auditor will make a mistake. An IRS audit attorney can detect and protect you from auditor errors while negotiating aggressively on your behalf, potentially lowering your tax penalties or even preventing you from being prosecuted for tax crimes.

    Audit representation is a major focus area for our tax firm, ensuring that your audit is handled with a sophisticated strategy in mind. The Tax Law Office of David W. Klasing represents individuals and business entities in all types of tax audits for architects, including but not limited to the following:

    Audits are frequently triggered by compliance issues, such as unreported income, concealed bank accounts, improperly claimed credits, unfiled returns, delinquent returns, unpaid tax liabilities, and, in the architectural industry, issues involving Section 199A deductions (26 U.S. Code § 199A, qualified business income). If you have been chosen for an audit by the IRS, the FTB, or other taxing authorities for any reason, it is in your best interests to contact an IRS tax attorney right away for further assistance.See our Audit Representation Q and A Library See our Employment Tax Law Q and A Library See our Foreign Audit Q and A Library

    State + Federal Tax Audit Appeals Lawyers for Architects in L.A.

    You will be notified of the taxing authority’s decision when your audit concludes, such as a determination that you owe a tax liability to the IRS. If you disagree with the auditor’s conclusions, you may dispute the results of your audit by requesting an IRS Appeals conference (or, if you are appealing a California state tax audit, by requesting a hearing with the Office of Tax Appeals (OTA)).

    This process involves preparing and submitting a written letter of protest, which should clearly and succinctly summarize your dispute and the basis on which it was formed. For example, you may support your argument with statutes from the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), IRS regulations and protocols, or other factual sources of data.

    If your appeal is not successful, it may be necessary to litigate the case in Tax Court. A skilled tax litigation attorney from the Tax Law Office of David W. Klasing should assist you with this process, which is rife with obstacles and pitfalls for taxpayers, making success as a pro se (self-represented) litigant all but impossible.See our IRS Appeals Q and A Library See our Tax Litigation Q and A Library
