To begin with you must understand that the optimal result after undergoing an irs audit is a finding of “No Change” by a taxing authority which will result in no additional tax, penalties or interest being assessed by a taxing authority or being owed by the party audited. At the other end of the spectrum, all too often experienced by those who choose to go through an audit without representation, an audit is an arduous, stressful and often intimidating process that leads to additional tax being owed which is compounded by the tacking on of penalties and interest by the taxing authorities. The absolute worst case scenario of an audit is that the audit process can lead to the audited party being criminally prosecuted.
