How Audit Representation Works

During an income tax audit or inspection, the IRS and all states allow a taxpayer to have an approved representative. The representative must have permission to practice before the IRS or state, and specific credentials are required. Attorneys, CPAs, and registered agents are the forms of members that are permitted to represent taxpayers before the IRS in income tax audits.

The methodology used to defend the taxpayer’s position is built by an audit official. He or she assists the taxpayer in the preparation of all the documentation submitted by the taxing authority and on behalf of the taxpayer, usually attends all meetings and maintains correspondence.
