Nonetheless, it’s a good idea to immediately seek legal advice whenever you hear from them.

If you’re ever the subject of an IRS audit, you owe it to yourself to immediately contact help. An IRS audit attorney could be the difference between keeping your money and, in the worst case scenario, staying out of jail. Even if you’ve done nothing wrong and you’re sure of it, the right legal help can make things go a lot mother.

Another time it’s essential to have a qualified lawyer’s help when dealing with the IRS is if you’re taking part in the offshore voluntary disclosure program.
