Audits

  • Response to CP-2000 Notice - $2,500 and up (depending on complexity).

  • Audits - billed hourly at $300.

 

Appeals / Refund Suits

  • Appeals / Tax Refund Suits- in some cases, contingent fees may be possible based on tax saved (example - IRS balance is reduced from $70,000 to $30,000 - a $40,000 savings).  Contingent fee is generally 1/3rd of the tax saved, though may be negotiable if balance is over $60,000.
