There is a certain rhythm to the audit process, and it’s a very scary beat. In this presentation, I’lldiscuss the steps that most examinations begin and end with. We’ll discuss eggshell audits, thoseaudits where unbeknownst to the IRS at the start of the examination, the taxpayer has majorcriminal problems and what you can do to help shepherd your client through the pending storm. We’ll also discuss the attorney-client privilege in the tax realm as well as the necessity to retain a Kovel accountant when there are underlying criminal tax issues that are lurking. Finally, we’ll take a short digression into IRS Appeals.
