If you receive any audit letter/notice/inquiry on your tax return, J. B. Moore Tax Resolution Service will represent your case before the IRS and/or State Revenue Department, regardless of who prepared your tax return. The IRS has three years from the due date of the tax return to assess any additional taxes that may be owed by issuing an Audit Letter. The IRS has the authority to examine the taxpayer’s books, papers and other records that supports the items considered on your filed tax returns. It is always a good idea to keep the records that are relevant with respect to the filed tax returns for at least 3 years from the date on which you have filed your taxes.
Taxpayer representation is the process of assisting our clients in dealing with various taxing authorities, negotiating payment plans or settlements. We represent clients on a variety of taxation issues and guide them through the dispute process ranging from a collection action to administrative appeals.

How We Can Help
What is and Enrolled Agent
The absolutely first thing you should do is contact us at J. B. Moore Tax Resolution Service even if you self-prepare your return. Unless you are skilled at dealing with the IRS, you should seek professional help from the very first correspondence. Never Ignore A Notice. The IRS does not go away and the problem will only get worse.
It is unfortunate that it often takes a professional to interpret what information an IRS notice is requesting. Most IRS notices require a letter response in IRS terminology with attached documents proving your right to the deduction. We can tell you what proof is needed and where to find it. Audits most often take place at the IRS office. A professional preparer can help you organize your documents for the audit. An Enrolled Agent can even take your place at the audit table! We strongly recommend you go to work and let us go to the audit. Telling the IRS too much information or what you think the agent wants to hear will not help your case.
In the event the audit does not go well and you still think you were entitled to a disallowed deduction, we can file an Appeal for you and continue to represent your case through the Appeals process.
An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights before the IRS. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
