When facing a state or IRS tax audit, make sure you have the best representation possible. Mahany & Ertl is recognized as a leader in resolving complex tax audits. We understand how disruptive and stressful the process can be for taxpayers. Our goal is to resolve every case at the revenue agent level, minimize your exposure and avoid costly appeals. We also make sure that you are fully informed and understand the process. Our team of experienced tax attorneys has helped everyone from individuals to Fortune 500 corporations.
We are unique in that we combine the knowledge of highly trained former government tax lawyers with real world trial experience. Because of our extensive government experience, we can open doors and get to the proper decision makers quickly when an agreement can’t be reached at the filed auditor level.
Whether you have received an audit notice or a knock on the door from IRS criminal division special agents, we will assist you in preparing, organizing, and defending your case.
If you are being investigated or audited, make sure you contact us before speaking with your accountant or preparer. Unfortunately, non-lawyers can be compelled to cooperate with the IRS or state tax agency and testify against you. (The biggest mistake small businesses and individuals make is speaking to the IRS or state revenue agent first; never appear for a tax audit without a lawyer. Always call us or another experienced audit defense lawyer first.)
We can assist you with all types of tax audit defense including sophisticated tax shelters, unreported income, improper deductions, Wisconsin Department of Revenue sales and use tax audits, tax evasion investigations, trust fund recovery penalty assessments and corporate income tax audits.
If you are facing an audit, let us take the worry off your shoulders.
